Magistrates & Crown Court representation

If you have been charged by the police with a criminal offence or received a court summons through the post, call our specialist Magistrates and Crown Court solicitors on 01616 966 229. Alternatively complete our online enquiry form and a member of the team will contact you directly.

The thought of attending court can be a nerve wracking experience for most individuals, but our dedicated team of experienced solicitors and barristers can be on hand to assist you every step of the way. Every criminal offence begins in the Magistrates Court with 95% of cases being resolved at this level of court. The remaining offences are committed to the Crown Court. At Stephensons, we have an experienced in house advocacy team consisting of a barrister and Solicitor High Court Advocates to guide you through the process.

Legal representation

Our solicitors can undertake work through our legal aid contracts with the Legal Aid Agency. Legal aid is means tested so work can also be undertaken on a fixed fee private paying basis. Find out if you are eligible for legal aid by reading our guide to criminal proceedings and legal aid.

Whatever the case or enquiry, our dedicated specialist team is ready to assist 24 hours a day, every day of the year. If you have been charged or summonsed to court with an offence, contact us on 01616 966 229 to see how we can work on your behalf to assist you at this most important time.
