Veja & Co Solicitors was originally set up to provide specialist criminal defence service with an emphasis on client care. We have a dedicated professional team of criminal law solicitors specialising in all aspects of criminal defence in addition to an enthusiastic team of legal support staff.

We provide a 24 HOUR emergency service for those who have been arrested and are held in detention at a police station or those facing court attendances on the weekends. We will provide prompt help, advice and attendance from the outset of your case.

Our goal is simple – to continue striving to be the best criminal solicitors’ practice in the UK, by preparing our clients’ cases to the highest standard. We will fight to obtain the greatest possible result in each and every case.

Veja & Co deal with both private paying clients and those whose matters will be publicly funded too. Our reputation in this area is built on working hard for our clients and ensuring that no stone is left unturned in challenging a prosecution case and building a solid defence. Our criminal lawyers forcefully defend our clients, both against the Police and the CPS.

Legal aid may be available to you but this is dependant on your means and income. If you are arrested by the police or attend the police station voluntarily you will be entitled to free legal representation at the police station, providing the interview is conducted by a police officer.

We operate nationally and are able to attend and represent clients at Police stations, Magistrates Courts, Crown Courts and the Court of Appeal.
