Crown Court

Hello, my name is Paul Seaton. I specialise in all areas of Criminal Law and can assist you at a Police Station or at Court 24/7 and at short notice.

Our dedicated Crime Team is made up of myself, administrative staff and a fully qualified Barrister who can represent you at the Police Station, Magistrates Court, Crown Court or Appeal Court depending on your requirements.

Please contact us for a free, no obligation chat about your criminal law matter at either our Corby office on 01536 276300 or our Kettering office on 01536 311690 or contact us online.

We can assist you if your criminal proceedings are at the Crown Court. Normally, we would have represented you at the Magistrates Court in any event, which is where all cases begin.

If we have not represented you at the Magistrates Court, but you would like us to represent you at the Crown Court, please contact us to discuss the position.

If you are already legally represented, it may be difficult to get your case transferred to us but please feel free to contact us to discuss this.

Legal Aid

If you case goes to the Crown Court and you were granted Legal Aid at the Magistrates Court, you may have to pay a contribution to your legal costs. The amount you would have to pay is not worked out by your Solicitor. In the Crown Court, if you pass the Interests of Justice test, you will automatically be entitled to legal aid.

However, you may have to contribute towards your defence costs. The type of proceedings you face in the Crown Court will determine how the means test will be applied. This is different from the magistrates’ court scheme where those who fail the means test must pay privately for all the cost of their representation.

If you have a trial at the Crown Court, the means test will consider your income and capital assets and you may be liable for contributions during the proceedings or at the end of your case.

Our Team

We will either have our consultant barrister Miss Williams look after you or we will instruct a reputable Barrister on your behalf. All of our team are experienced in dealing with Crown Court matters and we have a friendly, supportive and personal approach.  If you have any queries, feel free to call or email us free of charge.
