Crown Court Proceedings
Where your case is too serious to be heard by the Magistrates Court it will be sent to the Crown Court for trial. This is because the Crown Court has greater sentencing powers and the cases are often more serious and complex. Our dedicated team of Crown Court Solicitors, headed up by Chris Wong will prepare your case and instruct an barrister or higher rights advocate who will protect your interests during your Court Proceedings.
Our criminal defence team have experience of all cases from serious drug offences, public order offences plus murder, manslaughter, gun crime, knife crime and terrorism cases.
These cases require the most experienced lawyers to prepare and advise you on the case, ensuring that you get the best results possible.
