Criminal Defence

From the very beginning by representation at a police station to presenting a case to the Court of Appeal we are motivated by the same goal, to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.

If you or a loved one are charged or arrested with a criminal offence it is best to consult with a qualified solicitor to assist you in your situation. SKR Legal Solicitors undertake work in police stations and courts throughout England and Wales, representing clients facing all types of Criminal allegations.

Our dedicated solicitors and case workers support and represent you at every stage of your case, regardless of how large or small it may be. We approach all our clients with sympathy and with the utmost discretion when dealing with their cases.

Often our clients will find themselves being investigated by the police with significant state resources supporting any prosecution by the Crown Prosecution Service, its times like this when you need a firm that has the right experience and a fearless attitude to fight for your case.

We operate a 24-hour service, 365 days a year without exception. If you find yourself being questioned by the police at the police station we can get a solicitor to you very quickly. Our client’s rights are important to us and we make sure they are fearlessly protected regardless of the circumstances.

Offences that we regularly deal with include:

  • Assault offences such as common assault, ABH and GBH
  • Criminal damage offences
  • Theft Act offences including theft, burglary and robbery etc
  • Public Order Act offences such as threatening behaviour etc
  • Drug-related offences such as possession, intent to supply etc

If you find yourself in need of a solicitor act now, don’t wait until your being interviewed by the police, as what you say and agree to, in a police station, will dictate what will happen to you and can affect whether or not a prosecution is brought.
