Our Head of Department Alan Hobden has conduct of all Crown Court matters. We have in-house Higher Court Advocates who can be called upon to represent you.
This means that our Crime Team can represent you from your arrest and detention at the police station to the highest Courts ensuring early involvement and continuity of representation throughout the course of your case.
We have an excellent reputation for being successful as well as exercising discretion with cases which end up at the Crown Court.
In addition to the clear benefit of continued representation throughout proceedings by our Crime Team we appreciate that the decision as to who is to represent you at the Crown Court is one which we should make together.
We have strong links with local and national Chambers, if we ever need to employ a particularly specialist barrister to represent you.
Unlike many other law firms, we do provide you with a conference with a member of our Crime Team and your advocate/barrister at our offices and/or prison for all Crown Court cases.
Legal aid is available in the Crown Court and you can find out more on how you can obtain legal aid by clicking on our link ‘Funding your case’. Alternatively please contact our Crime Team on 01323 644222
