Have you been charged with a criminal offence? Then you need a solicitor who can prepare a clear, concise case for you to be presented in court. (more...)
Being charged with a crime can be a frightening experience, especially if the offence carries a prison sentence or it is your first time dealing with the criminal justice system. The criminal law solicitors we select to appear on our site are all highly experienced and understand the court system inside out.
If you are on a low income or receive benefits, you may be entitled to legal aid to help fund your criminal defence. Your solicitor will advise you on how to access legal aid funding and what you are entitled to.
Representation in court
Your solicitor will take instructions from you and will attend the police station with you after you have been arrested. However, a barrister is the person who will represent you in court. Criminal barristers have specialist knowledge and experience which can make a substantial difference to the outcome of a case.
Your solicitor will help you find a barrister and will work closely with him or her to prepare and present your case to the court.
