Criminal Law Defence Solicitors

If you are facing a serious criminal charge you need assurance that your legal representatives understand every detail of your case.

Our team of specialist criminal law solicitors here at Lanyon Bowdler are experienced across a wide range of offences, from serious fraud to speeding and murder, so you can be confident that your case is in safe hands.

What is Criminal Law?

Everyone is entitled to free legal representation if they are arrested and taken to a police station. If you find yourself in this situation, ask for a solicitor from Lanyon Bowdler and one of our professional lawyers will come and represent you.

We can then look after your criminal case during your stay at the police station, and as the case develops through Magistrates’ Court, Crown Court or the Court of Appeal.

Our private client solicitors have first-rate knowledge and experience of motoring offences, and we would advise getting in touch sooner rather than later if you have been prosecuted for a motoring offence - don’t put it off, even though it might be tempting to do so!

We also have specialists in environmental and regulatory offences, so please contact us if you need legal advice in that respect.

We can assist on various aspects of prisoners’ rights, such as parole board hearings, life reviews, judicial review applications and disciplinary hearings.

Lanyon Bowdler has been a pioneer in flexible payment options, and we can offer fixed fees and service level guarantees to give you certainty over your legal costs.

If you are eligible for publicly-funded legal services, it’s reassuring to know that we are an approved Very High Cost Case (VHCC) panel member, and our specialist team can advise you about how that works.

Instruct us for Agency Work

We have sol icitor advocates based at our offices in Shrewsbury, Telford, Oswestry, Ludlow and Hereford, so are well-placed to act as agents for other law firms either at the police station or in court.

Please call or email the team to discuss how we can help.
