Criminal Defence and Road Traffic Specialist

Services – Magistrates Court


If you are charged with a criminal offence, or summonsed to Court for a road traffic offence, then your case will start in the Magistrates Court.

All our solicitors specialise in criminal defence law and will be able to advise you on the best way to present your case. Any information that we receive from you and the advice that we give to you will be treated confidentially.

Public Funding (legal aid) is not an automatic entitlement in the Magistrates Court. We will be able to advise you whether your case will meet the two criteria that are needed to ensure that your defence costs are covered; the “interests of Justice test” and the “means test”. We can assist in completing the necessary application forms with you.

In cases where public funding is not available we will advise you in writing as soon as possible how much our fees will be. We endeavour to ensure that our fees are reasonable and competitive.
