Both of our criminal solicitors are accredited Duty Solicitors. Therefore, we can assist you not only in the police station but also throughout the journey of your case whether it be in the Magistrates or Crown Court.
As well as regularly appearing in the Magistrates Court, we have dealt with a number of high profile and serious cases, including lengthy fraud cases and the more serious cases such as sexual assaults and murders. Powleys are equipped not only to deal with the most serious of cases, but also with the more common offences.
We appreciate that for a lot of our clients this may be their first time in the police station or at court which makes us aware that practical advice such as where to go, what to wear and how to behave is just as important as legal advice.
Powleys never forget that, even if the offence carries a fairly minor sentence, this will be a traumatic experience for you and we will offer you that much needed support throughout the process.
Our expertise in motoring offences means we can often help people retain their driving licence either by avoiding or mitigating the effect of the imposed points.
We can also assist with welfare benefit interviews where the Department for Work and Pensions investigate benefit fraud.
If your matter is more serious and has to go to the Crown Court, we will instruct experienced criminal barristers to ensure that you obtain the best representation.
For a lot of criminal cases our fees will be covered by legal aid and we will always advise you on the availability of this. Where it is not possible to obtain legal aid, we will ensure our fees remain competitive.
Facing criminal prosecution will always be a daunting prospect. Let us support and guide you through the process with realistic and focused advice. Our clients tell us time and time again that they appreciate our no-nonsense approach.
