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.
