General and Serious Crime

The police wish to speak to me; I have been charged or summonsed for a criminal offence.

We are ranked as a leading firm in Chambers UK and the Legal 500 for crime. We are available 7 days a week; if you would like to discuss your case and obtaining legal representation then speak with one of the team free of charge today by calling 0203 814 2020, or by emailing us on

Our team comprises skilled criminal defence lawyers who are experts in defending a whole range of cases, from theft through to murder.

We provide a comprehensive crime service, acting for you at police stations and through the Magistrates’ Courts, Crown Court and Appellate Courts.  Throughout the Thames Valley and London area the team has a long-established reputation as a leading defence practice that was built by delivering the highest quality representation to all of our clients. We only act on a privately instructed basis, and as such, we aim to provide an enhanced service to our clients.

The team has built up excellent links with leading barristers from criminal sets rated in the national Chambers UK Guide; we ourselves are rated in the Chambers UK Guide for crime, and also appear in the Legal 500 as a leading firm in the south-east of England for crime, fraud and licensing.

We want to make the law easy for you to understand, and we will prepare your case tactically to ensure the best possible chance of success.  We always endeavour to keep you fully updated on the progress of your case and will go to every effort to guide you through the process and help you with the difficult decisions.

At the police station:

We pride ourselves on protecting our client’s rights throughout investigations and providing the best possible advice. We know that being arrested or asked to attend an interview can be incredibly distressing and often highly inconvenient.  We work hard for you to ensure you are fully prepared for your interview, and we will keep track of your case as the investigation develops, so that you always know what’s going on.  We are able, if required, to attend police station interviews outside of office hours, 7 days a week. However, in most cases we will seek to arrange voluntary interviews at a time to suit you.

Should you require emergency assistance outside of office hours, you can contact us on our emergency number – 0787 668 7587.

At court:

Our specialist trial advocates are some of the best around.  The key to our success is thorough and effective preparation of your case, delivering sound but strategic advice at the earliest stage. Our approach caters for those who are prepared to commit their own time and resources to their case; being privately funded we are able to take a pro-active approach with prosecutors, and will often find an alternative outcome to a full criminal conviction.

We offer a range of flexible funding solutions to our clients. We will discuss your financial circumstances and tailor a competitive package that works for you. If you would like to discuss funding your case then contact one of our team now for a free no-obligation initial telephone consultation using any of the contact information above or by submitting a contact form here
