Find a lawyer to represent you

If you have been arrested and charged with a serious criminal offence the most important choice you have to make is the choice of your solicitor. It is easy to find a solicitor but very difficult to change solicitors. In fact if you on legal aid it may be impossible to change.

These are the things that you should take into account when making your choice:

  • Which solicitor will actually handle your case on a day to day basis?

  • What is his/her speciality?

  • Who will look after your case when he/she is on holiday or sick?

  • Is he/she part of a team?

  • How big is that team?

  • Do they explain themselves clearly?

  • Do they avoid legal jargon?

  • How promptly are your calls returned?

  • Can you speak to them outside office hours?

  • Is it easy to get in contact with him/her during the working day?

  • What is their web page like?

  • Has your lawyer got any big trials coming up, such as to mean they cannot give you their full attention?

  • How much trial experience do they have?

  • Do you know anyone who has instructed them?


We can give guidance and advice based upon our experience, expertise and contacts.
