A reputation built on excellence

Birds Solicitors offers advice in a range of areas including regulatory compliance, allegations of fraud and other criminal offences, modern slavery and human trafficking, inquests, extradition, prison law, advocacy and sports law.

The firm’s reputation has been built on its excellence in defending those individuals unfortunate enough to be investigated or prosecuted for criminal offences, whatever the seriousness of the offence. We work under legal aid where it is available to the individual or on a privately funded basis where it is not. Our criminal cases cover the whole spectrum of offences, from the police station to the Magistrates Court, the Crown Court and into the Appellate Courts.

Cummings is like the nightmare defence client who thinks he’s the cleverest person in court & no matter how strongly u advise him not to go into the witness box insists he can ‘clear all this mess up quickly’ while you sit with ur head in ur hands trying not to look at the jury.

Given that Mary was supposed to be self-isolating at the time the child was taken to hospital, why did she go with him, instead of the niece whom you’ve moved next to specifically for this very purpose?
