Over twenty years we have built a reputation for providing fantastic representation to clients requiring an individual service. Choosing to provide bespoke advice to individuals and companies who demand quality at every level, we have developed a firm of dedicated lawyers and relationships with the best barristers at the criminal bar.

We continue our commitment to providing representation on legal aid for many cases of complexity or particular legal difficulty. For those wishing to fund their cases privately we can usually offer fixed prices and your choice of solicitor or barrister. The case begins and ends with you and every aspect of our work is designed to keep you at the centre.

Client Testimonials

Old Bailey Solicitors have been exceptional in handling my case and making it as worry free as possible for me. OBS assisted me through every step of my case and went above and beyond expectations to achieve an outcome in the Crown Court which avoided a custodial sentence, for this I am very grateful.

I'm happy to pay the price for a good service. In my opinion, Rod Hayler did everything to a high standard.

A recently acquitted client

Everything has been done effortlessly and without any judgement. Thank you.

A client after confiscation proceedings concluded

Thanks to your hard work I have been able to keep my home and get on with my life.
