Criminal defence

We cover all aspects of criminal law from motoring offences to more serious and complex criminal offences.

We are here to give you help and advice when you find yourself being investigated by the police, local authority or the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).  We appreciate that this may be a very stressful time for you, your family and friends and we are here to offer our advice and support. When you are accused of committing a crime, you need to know what is happening and how best to defend yourself.  We are here to help. We will talk to you about your situation and give you the best advice. We will attend the police station with you in Skipton, Harrogate or at another station within a reasonable distance of Skipton

If you are accused of a public order offence, theft or a serious crime such as an assault, a drug offence, robbery, fraud or murder, or if you are being investigated by the DWP, you will need expert advice that is professional and relevant to your particular situation.  We provide advice on all aspects of criminal law and road traffic offences including drink driving, dangerous and careless driving. Our expert lawyers successfully handle a wide range of cases providing you with a professional and skilled defence. We will only ever speak to you in plain English and make sure that you are kept up-to-date throughout your case.

We will represent you at the police station, the Magistrates’ and the Crown Court. We are contracted with the Legal Aid Agency for criminal law so depending on your personal circumstances, your costs may be paid by Legal Aid.  So for further advice call us today on 01756 799000 and let us handle your case.
