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.
