Our lawyers are specialists in criminal law, road traffic and motoring offences. We are based in Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields, and offer representation throughout the North East. Our solicitors have many years experience and represent defendants across the full range of criminal offences.

Our team are top ranked in the North East, Chambers Guide which independently ranks the UK’s best law firms and lawyers stated the team were an “outstanding practice advising clients on a broad range of criminal matters.”

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 advice on a way forward, what to do next and representation if you require it for a trial or a guilty plea.

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.
