Magistrates Court Solicitors

Benefit fraud

    The case spanned close to 3 years and in parts becoming quite complex, requiring specialists. Throughout this period I found David Gray's staff to be professional, efficient and was kept informed at every stage of my case. This together with the experienced barristers they have at their disposal, saw my case conclude in a positive result. I have no problem in recommending David Gray solicitors and should I need legal representation in the future would use them again.

All criminal offences start in the Magistrates Court. The majority of cases remain there but some end up in the Crown Court. This is because the matter is so serious it can only be heard there, or the offence is of a type where the defendant is given a choice about where s/he wishes to be tried.

Our expert Magistrates Court solicitors will guide you through the process providing the best quality advice and representation. Whether you need representation for a trial, guilty plea or advice on what to do.

We can assist at every stage of the criminal justice process.  Contact us for advice as soon as possible. If you have been charged by the police or received a Postal Requisition to attend court, contact us for immediate advice.
