The first step when faced with an accusation of a serious crime is to speak to a specialist solicitor for advice as soon as possible.

We believe that everyone accused of a crime has the right to a strong, committed defense, and that every case is of vital importance to the accused. From the most minor to the more serious offence, our approach is the same - detailed investigation that explores every avenue, pro-active and determined representation in the police station and at Court, commitment to providing the best advice and explanation of the law, and a sympathetic understanding of the importance of the case to you.

Our goal is simple - to continue striving to be the best criminal solicitors' practice in the UK, by preparing our clients' cases vehemently so that they have the best possible chance of a not-guilty verdict. We provide legal services of the highest quality in Criminal Defense – you can be assured of a first-class service by a team of professional and approachable staff.

We have experience of everything from road traffic offences to the most serious cases including sexual offences, armed robbery, drugs and murder. We are accredited as experts in fraud, financial impropriety and white-collar crime.
