Pre-Charge Advice Lawyers
Our specialist criminal defence solicitors and legal team dispense expert Pre-Charge Advice
If a criminal allegation has been made against you, understandably it can be a very worrying and anxious time. An allegation made to the Police will usually result in the Police investigating the matter further, which can involve an arrest or attendance at a voluntary police interview under caution.
Obtaining specialist pre-charge advice and representation from our private criminal defence solicitors is a crucial element in enhancing the prospects of obtaining a favourable outcome and building the foundation of a robust defence case, which will prove invaluable should the Police / CPS decide to Charge and Prosecute you for the alleged criminal offence.
If you have been asked to attend a voluntary interview, have recently been arrested or are being investigated for a criminal offence, please complete our Contact Form or call us on 03452229955 for an initial telephone assessment of your case and the cost of pre-charge advice.

Advantages of Paying Privately for a Specialist Criminal Defence Lawyer
- Expertise: There are very limited number of law firms throughout the country that only accept criminal cases on a private fee-paying basis, these lawyers will usually only accept such cases because they possess superior legal knowledge and expertise.
- Communication: Paying for legal representation privately will usually result in better and more frequent communication with your Solicitor and Barrister. Lawyers paid privately will usually respond to e-mails and phone calls quickly.
- Preparation: The amount of time a lawyer spends preparing a case and considering the evidence will have an impact upon the result. Paying privately will ensure that the lawyer can spend enough time on case preparation, which will have a positive impact on the overall outcome of the case. We prepare thoroughly for each case.
- Service: Clients that instruct lawyers via private funds will receive a substantially better service than those using legal aid.
- Quality: The overall quality of legal representation from private client solicitors is significantly superior.
- Consistency: We provide all our clients with consistency and continuity, the lawyer dealing with your case will be the same person from start to finish.
