Criminal Law


We provide a complete range of services from advice in conference, representation at the Police Station, Magistrates’ and Crown Courts. We aim to provide these services three hundred and sixty-five days of the year, whatever the day whatever the hour..

We operate a file ownership system which means that one of our solicitors will personally oversee your case from start to finish. We believe that this is the best way of establishing a trusting relationship between solicitor and client together with continuity of service and advice..

We hold Legal Aid Agency contracts in criminal law which allows us to offer Legal Aid to those clients that are eligible

Legal Aid is free for those clients detained at the Police Station and subject to a means and merits test for those appearing at Court. All of our solicitors are conversant with Legal Aid regulations and will be able to guide you through the application process. For clients that are ineligible for Legal Aid we offer a range of private client packages tailored to your financial circumstances and aimed at providing a first class service at affordable prices.

The firm is one of the largest practices in the Medway Towns and North Kent, servicing clients across Kent, the South East and London.

  • Police Station Interviews,
  • Bail Applications,
