Should you face yourself being charged with a serious offence, the likely venue your matter will be heard in is the Crown Court.
Crown Court matters tend to carry more severe penalties than matters heard in the magistrate’s court. It is therefore essential you feel at ease with the advocate that is representing you.
Walsh solicitors have a selection of highly trained Barristers and Higher Court Advocates who represent individuals from across the UK. We have also forged close links with leading silks in the country who are instructed to handle serious and complex crime matters.
Our Crown Court advocates are able to guide you through the legal process and explain legal terminology in a manner that is easy to understand. Our advocates are also able to advise you on any costs implications following a conviction or acquittal.
We will hand pick the advocate that best suits your needs. We strongly believe the appointment of the right advocate for your matter is half the battle in securing the outcome you desire.
Legal aid is still available for matters heard in the Crown Court depending on the nature of the offence and the financial means of the accused. We are happy to act on legal aid however should legal aid not be available we offer competitive fixed fee agreements for work undertaken by the Crown Court Department.
