Criminal Law

For over 50 years David W Harris & Co Solicitors have been providing advice upon criminal matters to its clients. The current criminal law team at David W Harris & Co Solicitors is headed by 4 Partners who between them have a wealth of experience in dealing with all types of criminal cases. Our specialist Criminal Lawyers receive regular training so that they are fully aware of recent developments in this area of the law and are able to help you with all types of cases from the straightforward to the complex. Our Solicitors can provide advice and representation in the following areas:

Representation at the Police Station

Getting the correct legal advice at the Police Station is very important and often has a bearing upon how the case progresses. Having a Solicitor at the Police Station to represent you is not an indication of guilt. It is your fundamental right to have a Solicitor present and that is recognised by the fact that whatever your income you are entitled to free legal advice and representation at the Police Station.

Representation at Court

Our Solicitors have years of experience of dealing with cases in the Magistrates Court, Youth Court and the Crown Court. Legal Aid to cover the costs of representation is available for those who are eligible. Our Solicitors can help you with assessing your eligibility. Reasonable private rates are available for those clients who are not entitled to Legal Aid.

We have Solicitors offering advice in criminal matters across all three offices. One of our criminal team of Solicitors will be more than happy to discuss in confidence your particular case and how we can help.

Please note that David W Harris & Co Solicitors operates a 24 hour call out scheme in relation to attending at the Police Station. If you are at a Police Station and need help and advice just ask for David W Harris & Co Solicitors. The Police will then be able to contact one of our team who will then arrange representation for you at the Police Station.
