Providing top-notch criminal defence and personalised guidance for individuals.
Expert criminal defence
If you have been accused of, or charged with, a criminal offence we can work with you to defend the proceedings or to limit the impact a guilty plea may have on your livelihood and reputation.
Experienced and confident
With over 25 years of experience across all types of criminal defence, our expert lawyer, Stephen Bennett will work with you to obtain the best outcome possible. Early involvement at the investigation stage can make all the difference to the outcome of any criminal case and our clear advice and direction can often divert matters away from the criminal courts resulting in less impact on reputation and finances. In more serious cases it may well be that your liberty is also at stake and we will advise on strategies to remove or mitigate that risk.
Criminal defence process
We will arrange an early meeting with you to discuss any anticipated police investigation and give you straightforward practical advice on what to do should the police arrive unannounced at your home.
If the police have asked you to attend a police station for a voluntary interview, we will contact them to obtain details of why they suspect you of committing a crime and ask them to disclose the evidence they are relying on.
You can then ask to meet with us to discuss this evidence before you go to the police station and we will give you advice on how to deal with the interview, the procedures and the possible outcomes.
Following any interview we can explore with the police if there are alternatives to a case going forward to court such as a caution or community disposal.
If you have been charged we can help you by obtaining the prosecution evidence from the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) and then representing you at the magistrates court.
In more serious cases proceeding in the crown court, we will work with you to help you choose representation from the strong network of London based barristers with whom we have a close working relationship.
We know you will want continuity of representation and we will do our utmost to make sure that you are represented by the same lawyers throughout.
We will explain in clear terms the likely costs associated with each step of the criminal process and will provide you with clear advice on your prospects of success in every case.
