How we can help

Old Bailey Solicitors aim to prepare both your case and you, our client, thoroughly before any case comes to court. Of course, you will need advice on the charge, the strength of evidence and your plea, but we like to provide a more comprehensive service.  If you are charged with a serious violent offence, you can expect from us a case plan, setting out the issues in your case and the tasks we will undertake to ensure the case is expertly prepared. We will discuss your choice of court advocate with you and involve you in decisions about experts, defence witnesses and trial tactics.

The law surrounding serious offences of violence is complicated and can involve a multitude of different legal issues. If you have been charged or are under investigation for a criminal offence, it is essential that you take immediate legal advice. Old Bailey Solicitors can advise you at every stage of your case, from the first stage of the criminal investigation at the police station, through to the Magistrates’ court and the crown court. If you are facing investigation or charge for any criminal offence, contact us for discreet, sensitive and expert advice.
