Defending you in the Magistrates Court

For those of us who are experienced lawyers going to court is an everyday experience. However it still has the ability to be complicated and challenging particularly when it comes to law and procedure. For those who are not qualified it can be a bewildering and frustrating experience.This is all the more so when a person's liberty may be at stake.

We would recommend that anyone appearing in the Magistrates Court at the very least considers having a solicitor to represent them - the law is always changing, sometimes there are little known defences and procedure can be complex. Moreover in many cases (depending on income) representation will be free of charge through legal aid.

We can advise you on the strength of the case against you, whether you have a defence and our team will diligently prepare your case and represent you in court whether you decide to plead guilty or not guilty.
The key is to get advice early. The earlier you get advice the better prepared you will be.
If you want to find out whether it is worth being represented we are always happy to give you some free informal advice over the telephone on this issue or if you would like to pop in to see us we can do the same in person.

Please get in touch as soon as possible using either of the provided numbers below.
