COURT REPRESENTATION

“We pride ourselves on meticulous preparation in every case”

MAGISTRATES COURT

Once charged all criminal cases start in the Magistrates’ Court and a large percentage remain there till conclusion as is the case with less serious matters such as driving offences, minor assaults and theft. Matters of a more serious nature will be dealt with in the crown court. We have in-house solicitors and counsel as well as external barristers who will deal with your case from the outset to help you through the Court process.

We regularly attend magistrate’s courts throughout London conducting bail applications, pleas in mitigation and dealing with trials. At the beginning of your case we will process your application for legal aid if necessary or provide you with competitive rates for private paying clients.

We will thoroughly prepare all aspects of your case including taking your instructions, advising on the evidence, tracking witnesses and obtaining statements, instructing experts if required and of course securing you the most appropriate advocates to represent you at court.

Where the case progresses to the Crown Court we can guide you through the process. We will examine the evidence, obtain your instructions and advise you of your options. It is essential that you have all the information so as to allow you to make informed decisions about your case.

Your case will be prepared by an experienced solicitor and if the matter proceeds to trial you will be represented by an experienced criminal barrister. Over the years we have built close relationships with high ranking chambers and will select the most suitable barrister or Queens Counsel (QC) to deal with your case. If you prefer a barrister of your own choice we shall endeavour to secure their instruction subject to their availability.
