Brilliant Legal Representation

“I was recently represented by Kang & Co Solicitors for a drink driving charge. From the initial telephone call it was clear that Kang & Co were experts in this field. They provided sound advice and diligently guided me through the process leading up to the court case. Through their legal representation I was able to avoid a community order and receive the best possible outcome for my case .”

Flawless Legal Help

“They had very little time to go ahead with getting all valid documents needed for my case, they were extremely efficient and great at calming me and keeping me updated with my case and it’s details with interviews and courtrooms to appear in, overall great experience with kang and co, I came out with a 2 year suspended sentence instead of a 1 year custodial sentence for GBH without intent. I now get to spend the time caring for my nan and helping with my family’s needs.”

What are Public Order Offences?

The Public Order Act 1986 makes certain types of conduct illegal and a criminal offence. A person found to be acting in contravention with the Public Order Act 1986 may face a prosecution, which could result in a criminal record and a custodial sentence (prison sentence). The type of conduct which is prohibited includes the use of or threat of violence against another person in a public place. The purpose of the act is to ensure that individual rights to freedom of speech and freedom of assembly are balanced against the rights of others to go about their daily lives unhindered.

The Benefits of Paying Privately for Legal Representation

We have been covering only private client criminal cases for many years and the benefits to our clients are clear. Our clients receive a much higher level of legal expertise and attention, because they are funding their cases privately. This enables us to dedicate more time in preparing the case, compared with firms that may also offer legal aid. Legal aid lawyers (Duty Solicitors) are often over-worked and are covering more cases than they should, as the nature of their work is not profitable, and this can result in your case not receiving the time and attention it deserves.

Our private client solicitors are specialists in their field, have significant experience and will have dealt with other cases like yours in the past and will know the best strategies to achieve a not guilty verdict.

Consequences of a Criminal Conviction

Our top-rated criminal defence team understand that being prosecuted will have a devastating impact upon your career, future income and your professional profile. For that reason, we leave no stone unturned when it comes to scrutinising the evidence and planning a strong defence strategy.

We appreciate that for many white-collar workers and regulated professionals a conviction for a crime could result in a professional regulatory body such as the Solicitors Regulation Authority, General Medical Council or Financial Conduct Authority assessing whether you remain suitable to continue in your profession given the criminal conviction on your record. We aim to secure the best possible outcome for all our clients, as a conviction could result in life changing consequences or prevent you from continuing your chosen career path.

It is important to appreciate that whilst a relatively minor conviction, such as using Threatening, Abusive or Insulting Behaviour, will not result in a custodial sentence (prison). However, a conviction could potentially result in the end of your career or issues with other aspects of your life, such as travelling to other countries for holidays or work. Our lawyers understand that being prosecuted can be a tough time and your case is a priority for us. Instructing our specialist top-ranked criminal lawyers to represent you will give you the best possible chance of a successful outcome and we will fight your corner to win.

Our solicitors appreciate that if you are a public figure or sports personality, a criminal conviction or even investigation could potentially result in suspension from public office or cancellation of sponsorship/advertising deals. It is, therefore, crucial that you instruct a qualified and specialist criminal defence law firm that has previously represented many high-profile clients and professionals, as this will provide you with the best chance of a not guilty verdict.

A criminal record for an offence such as assault, battery or harassment could also cause difficulties in family law / care proceedings as a criminal conviction will create a further obstacle to overcome in those proceedings. The lawyer you choose to instruct to defend your case will have a significant impact upon the direction and outcome of the case, therefore you should take serious consideration when choosing the law firm.
