– Advise you of the likely sentence you will face if you plead guilty or are convicted of any offence
– Address the Court on your behalf using our best endeavours to secure the best possible result in all the circumstances

What We Do:

Look out for your best interests whether it be in the Magistrates’ Court or the Crown Court and on whatever application
– Mitigate on your behalf trying to obtain the most favourable sentence in all the circumstances
– Run trials – challenging Prosecution evidence, cross-examining witnesses, gathering evidence, advancing a defence, advising on the law ad procedure and presenting all of the facts to the Court in the most favourable way.
– Make bail applications
