Criminal Law

For most people the thought of having a criminal conviction is both frightening and frustrating as it may affect their employment careers families and lifestyle.

We have a team of highly specialised criminal defence solicitors who are recognised by the Law Society as specialist in criminal litigation. We provide expert legal advice and assistance from the police station to all courts. We have the experience of representing clients across a wide spectrum of offences ranging from murder to motoring offences.

At A & A Law we have a proven track record of achieving the best results for our clients.
Our first priority is to help you avoid a conviction. We will vigorously advance your case with the prosecutor and question the facts and evidence to ensure that you are given every opportunity to have the case discontinued at the earliest opportunity or dismissed at trial.
However we are aware that this is not always an achievable goal. In those circumstances where a conviction is unavoidable, we will work hard to help you achieve the most lenient sentence taking into account the peculiar circumstances of your case.

We are also prepared to assist you in appealing unfavourable sentencing decisions were we consider the sentence to be excessive.
