How much does it cost for you to represent me?
In all cases legal aid is available to cover your legal advice at the police station. If your case then proceeds to the Magistrates’ Court and even to the Crown Court, we will be able to advise you at an early stage whether legal aid is available for your case or, if it is not, we can provide you with a fixed fee or estimate so that you will be fully aware of the costs involved.
We handle motoring and road traffic offences and serious crime throughout England and Wales.
We offer 24 hour police station attendance throughout Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. We appear regularly in the Magistrates’ Courts all over Lincolnshire and at Lincoln Crown Court. We take cases on appeal to the Court of Appeal, Divisional Court and Crown Court, whether or not we represent you at the trial. We visit prisoners on remand to take instructions.
For urgent cases please call 01522 304256.
