Crown Court Representation

Our Higher Court advocates have over 50 years of experience in dealing with criminal cases.

Crown Courts deal with the more serious or complex cases and our team of Higher Court Advocates and access to experienced Barristers means we can assure our clients of the best advice and advocacy available. 

Our Higher Court advocates have over 50 years of experience in dealing with criminal cases.

Most Crown Court cases will satisfy the Legal Aid Agency’s merits test but depending on your income and savings you may have to pay a contribution towards your representation.  We can check if you may have to pay a contribution towards your legal aid.

We can assist at all stages of the case including:

  • Obtaining the prosecutions’ evidence
  • Applying for bail
  • Dealing with appeal against refusal of bail
  • Preparing your case for trial, including interviewing witnesses
  • Representing you at a trial or other contested hearing
  • Cross examining prosecution witnesses on your behalf
  • Liaising with the Youth Offending Team/Probation Service
  • Sentencing hearings
  • We can also advise you in relation to appealing any conviction or sentence to the Court of Appeal

We deal with the most serious cases including murder, manslaughter, serious assault/violence allegations, historic sexual allegations, conspiracies, drugs importations, robbery, complex fraud as well as less serious matters which cannot be dealt with in the Magistrates’ Court such as burglary, production and supply of drugs, and breaches of crown court orders i.e. Suspended Sentences or Community Orders.

If you do not qualify for Legal Aid, we can discuss with you the work involved and may be able to agree a fixed fee for your representation or work at an hourly rate.  It is difficult to provide any estimate of costs without knowing more about your case and the evidence against you. 

We can discuss this with you at an initial fixed fee interview*  If you win your case, in some cases you may be able to recover these costs in full, but in most cases due to an Act of Parliament introduced in 2012, you may recover only part (around one third) of the costs we charge.

(£100 for up to 30 minutes or £150 for up to an hour – all charges exclusive of VAT – currently 20%).
