About Us

We are a well established team of Criminal Defence Specialists with a wealth of experience in Criminal Law. We operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

For many years we have built a reputation for providing experienced representation to clients on an individual basis from initial arrest at the police station through the Magistrates Court to the Crown Court. We have developed working relationships with specialist barristers and forensic experts in every field instructed purely on our knowledge of their abilities based upon many years of our experience specialising in this field.

We provide expert representation from the initial interview at the police station through to Court hearings in both the Magistrates and Crown Courts.

We are able to not only obtain legal aid for many cases but for those wishing to fund their cases privately we can offer fixed prices and your choice of barrister if you so wish. Regardless of how your case is funded, we can provide a free first consultation to establish the best way to proceed. Our aim is to keep you at the center of all the preparation and proceedings.

Whilst being based in Hampshire, with video conferencing facilities and face to face meetings local to you we are able to travel nationally to represent you.

Contact us via email, call us or drop by. Arrangements can also be made to meet you at a court local to you nationwide and video conferencing facilities are available via your mobile, tablet, laptop or computer.

We offer a fixed fee of £500 plus VAT for advice and representation on road traffic offences that are dealt with at a Magistrates Court and concluded at the first hearing.

This fee includes;

  • explaining the court procedure so you know what to expect at court and the sentencing options available.
  • considering the evidence including initial disclosure if available
    taking your instructions
  • initial advice in relation to an appeal

Should you require additional services such as taking instructions from a witness, instructing any expert witnesses, these are of course available but at additional cost. Please note that travel to a non local court will incur additional fees.
