Experienced solicitors and police station representatives

Our head office is based in Uxbridge but we also have offices in Chesham and Cowley.  These all are accessible to wheelchairs. We have a team of experienced and caring solicitors and Police Station Representatives that cover all areas of the UK 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We can attend at the Police Station, the Court or even when you are not safely able to leave hospital and attend the Police Station for interview we will arrange legal representation at the hospital so that the police can interview you in the safety and security of the hospital environment. We aim to take care of you during every stage of the proceedings.

Our Solicitors have extensive expertise in dealing with people like you.  If you are a youth or if you suffer with mental health issues or learning difficulties or even if you have never been in trouble before and are scared we can help.  It doesn’t matter what offence you have been charged with as we have experience with every offence from Public Disorder to Murder.

We have long standing working relationships with highly respected Consultant Forensic Psychiatrists at the Cardinal Clinic, Deo Clinic and the West London Mental Health Trust based at Ealing Hospital whom we regularly instruct to provide expert reports for the Court on any of our Clients that suffer from a range of mental health difficulties.   We also work with Communicourt who can assess whether you need assistance to understand the Court procedure and can provide an intermediary to help you.   We also get reports prepared if there is a question as to whether you are “unfit to plead” because of the difficulties you have.

We have video link facilities in our office which means that we can provide a greater level of contact with you if you are remanded then other firms may be able to provide.

We pride ourselves on the strength of our expertise in dealing with all stages of criminal proceedings and the quality of service we strive to provide to you.
