It is a mistake to assume that all criminal lawyers provide a similar service. Having a top law firm with a really good win rate on your side can make the difference between winning and losing. Don’t take the risk.

A selection of some of our solicitors' recent cases

  • Our client was charged with being drunk in charge of a motor vehicle. Our client was taken to the station, breathalysed, and consequently charged to appear in front of the Magistrates Court.

  • Our drink driving solicitors prepared witness evidence for the court relating to what she had drunk, and cross-examined the police officer on the use of the breath test machine. Mistakes had been made, and the case was thrown out by the magistrates. Verdict: not guilty

  • Our client was involved a minor collision with another car just outside his house. He had come inside, where his wife and a family friend were waiting. He had already had a small amount to drink before the accident, but not enough to be over the limit.

  • Our client was a young SHO who was alleged to have been in possession of a small amount of a class A substance.

  • Our client had been convicted of murder in a first trial having been represented by a different firm of solicitors. The prosecution case was that he and a friend had attacked the victim with a knife.

  • Our clients were two local businessmen who were accused of attacking a taxi driver after an argument over the fare.
