We know, given our experience, how stressful being accused of a criminal offence can be. Whether you are to be questioned by police, or whether criminal proceedings have been started, when you instruct us to help with your criminal defence, you can be assured of receiving specialist advice from a respected and experienced lawyer.

Our team has a wealth of experience in preparing and presenting cases before the Magistrates and Crown Court and the Court of Appeal.
