Specialist advice with a personal touch

Our highly skilled criminal law solicitors are ready to defend you in your time of need. Upon instructing our firm, you will be assigned a personal lawyer who get to know you personally, the circumstances behind the criminal allegation, and will take full responsibility for the progress of your case. If you need your lawyer’s immediate assistance or support, all you need to do is pick up the phone.

We are accredited by the Law Society in the Criminal Litigation Accreditation Scheme and one of our partners, Andrew Clowser, is an accredited specialist with nearly 30 years of experience.

Police station representation

You are entitled to free legal advice when you are at the police station, whether you have been arrested or invited for a voluntary interview under caution.

We strongly recommend that you do not speak to the police (or other prosecuting authority) until we have given you advice as anything you say could be used as evidence against you.

Our team includes qualified duty solicitors and police station representatives who can travel at short notice to police stations around Harlow, Epping, Bishop’s Stortford and the wider Essex area to represent you. 

Criminal investigation

We understand and deeply sympathise with the stress caused by being under criminal investigation. Our proactive solicitors will work tirelessly and strategically to try and guide the investigation towards a positive outcome – preferably the investigation being closed with no charges being brought against you.

Our service includes making representations to the police, CPS or prosecuting body against criminal charges, ensuring your legal rights are protected, and providing preparation and representation at any further interviews.

Court representation

If you have been charged with an offence or summonsed to court, we can provide specialist criminal defence services in the Magistrates Court, Crown Court and Youth Court.

It is understandable to feel anxious about an approaching court date, particularly if this is your first time facing the criminal justice system. We hope to provide some comfort wherever possible, helping you prepare, ensuring you get a fair trial, and seeking the outcome which has the least negative impact on your life.

Regulatory breach

Our regulatory solicitors have expertise across a wide range of investigatory and enforcement cases, covering all sectors, from health and social care, to manufacturing, to corporate and commercial. We understand that regulatory action could have serious consequences for you, including the loss of your business and livelihood, large fines and even a prison sentence.

We will draw on decades of combined experience to vigorously defend you at every stage of your case, from interview and investigation, to any appearances at court or tribunal.

Legal aid and competitive fee options available

For certain aspects of the criminal justice process, you may be eligible for legal aid, usually depending on your financial circumstances. This means you may not have to pay for some of our services. For other aspects, we aim to offer flexible fees, including fixed fees wherever possible so you can stay in control of your legal costs.

We strongly believe every individual deserves access to specialist legal advice to ensure their right to fair process. We will talk you through your funding options as early on in the process as possible to ensure you are happy with how your case will progress and how much it will cost.
