Criminal Law

If you or a member of your family has been or is about to be arrested, we encourage you to contact an experienced Criminal Defence Solicitor as soon as possible.

Crompton Halliwell Solicitors are available 24/7 to provide legal advice and representation for anyone under arrest at the police station, or subsequently charged with a criminal offence.

If you or one of your children are summonsed or charged by the Police you will be required to attend at Court. We will be able to give expert advice and represent you in Court no matter what the offence. Most offences will warrant the grant of Legal Aid and we will apply for this on your behalf.

Our Defence Solicitors can give you advice on any issues, including bail, how to plead and possible sentences that may follow if you are convicted of any criminal offence.

At Crompton Halliwell we have two full-time Criminal Solicitors who are on call 24/7 for attendance at police stations or Magistrates’ Courts. Those Solicitors also have Higher Rights of Audience. This qualification allows them to appear in the Crown Court and truly offer a full criminal defence service to our clients from the police station through to the Magistrates’ Courts and onto the Crown Court, thus providing a continuity of service. We would encourage you to look at their profiles to assess their particular skills.

Please email our experienced advocates Jo Grant or James Daly directly with your Criminal Law enquiry.
