Our highly experienced solicitors boast over 125 years combined experience in successfully defending those facing criminal and regulatory allegations and can provide expert legal advice in any case.

Whether you are arrested for an alleged criminal offence, facing a motoring conviction or being prosecuted by a public or regulatory body (such as the Local Council or Fire Authority, Health and Safety Executive, Trading Standards or Environment Agency – to name but a few) we will be at your side at every stage.

We pride ourselves on having one of the largest teams of fully qualified criminal solicitors in the region, and this strength and breadth means we will always be there when you need us most.

We even have higher court advocates to represent you in the Crown Court, Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court.
