Our team of solicitors are experienced in representing clients at the magistrates' court. We cover all of the London courts as well others all around England.
Our in-house advocates are experienced in dealing with all aspects of magistrates’ court work from early guilty pleas to fully contested trials. We also have expertise in representing juveniles in the Youth Courts and clients with mental health issues.
Public funding or legal aid is available for representing you in the magistrates' court but this is both means and merits tested. In other words you must qualify financially and the prospects of you successfully defending or the case being discontinued against you must be strong on your defence and evidence.
In the event that you are refused legal aid or simply are not eligible we are able to act for you on a private costs basis. In this situation we will explain to you our hourly rate or fixed fee for your particular matter. If you require private representation please make an appointment to see us – our crime line number is 0208 581 1502
