Criminal Law

Criminal Law SolicitorsDW Solicitors has an extremely good reputation for providing a very thorough, sympathetic and friendly service. We understand that these can be very stressful and upsetting times.

We do pride ourselves on offering a ‘hand-holding’ approach with our clients to help them through every aspect of the proceedings and refuting the allegation (where appropriate) to achieve the best outcome for our clients.

DW Solicitors deals with all types of criminal matters and has recently been involved in several high profile cases including:

  • A matter involving money laundering from allegedly the proceeds of drug activities;
  • A dangerous driving allegation involving allegations of the client running over a traffic warden
  • A serious assault case which involved allegations of the client stamping on the victim’s head;
  • An allegation of a client failing to attend for Jury Service which was taken to the High Court in London.
  • A matter involving procuring the release of a client that had been imprisoned as a consequence of his dogs escaping from his garden notwithstanding the dogs did not threaten or injure anyone.  The client had initially represented himself.

At DW solicitors we provide a personal service and give our clients all the care attention needed for their individual case without delay so as to ensure that we are fully prepared and have considered all relevant issues in sufficient time prior to the Hearing.

We never lose focus of the fact that the prosecution need to prove their case beyond reasonable doubt.  We always have this threshold in mind when preparing for Hearings to give our clients the best possible outcome by putting the seed of doubt into the minds of the magistrates or jury. We would add that in any event, full consideration in relation to sentencing, is always given for an early guilty plea by the client.

The Practice advises on all types of criminal allegations.  For further information or guidance please contact our office on 01604 624222.

Please note: The Practice does not deal with any legal aid work.
