As a long-established experienced firm we have dealt with almost every criminal offence known to the law many times over. We can act on a legal aid or Private basis.

Are you on Pre Charge bail click here?  Full guidance issued to police officers on Pre Charge bail approved by the government click here.

Are you released under investigation click here?

If you are required to attend the Police Station on a Voluntary basis for an interview you will need a Lawyer.

If you are being held at a police station, you are entitled to free independent legal aid advice and representation from a qualified police station representative, no matter what the time of day. We deal with all offences from very minor such as drunken incidents, theft, damage to the most serious of cases such as Rape, Assault GBH, Murder, Fraud and all levels of Sexual offences including Indecent Images allegations. We are one of the most busiest and well known criminal police station solicitor firms.

The police may offer you a duty solicitor, but you can always choose your own solicitor. You should choose us as this firm has been built on years of hard work and days/nights of 24/7 police station cases by protecting our client's best interests. Our emergency service does not sleep and offers a 24/7 service at the police station. We will make sure that the representative we send to your case has substantial experience and the ability to give you the best advice.

In more serious cases we will always make sure that a Senior Lawyer or Partner is involved in your case at the outset. If you take a duty solicitor given by the police be aware that some duty solicitors are very good with clients, but this is not true of all and they may be overworked with many cases that day or night. Not all duty solicitors are passionate given the low rates of legal aid payments. We always only employ highly passionate and dedicated criminal lawyers who care about your result. We can also offer you a fully private service tailored to your case at an affordable fixed rate.
