What makes us Different?

Our advocates are very experienced being either former police, Barristers and Crown Prosecutors.

Street Offences – It is Important to Get the Best Advice

You may find that the offence of public nuisance, assault obstruct police you are alleged to have committed is your first, and a duty lawyer will advise you on the day of court that you are likely to get a fine and no conviction recorded.

We see countless clients who have pleaded guilty in circumstances where their civil rights were trounced upon by Police. Before pleading guilty, it is important to get advice. The story we regularly hear is about the client who has been out drinking having a good time, was told to leave by security, was forcibly removed where no force was required, police take over outside the establishment with no reasonable basis to suspect an offence has been committed, ignore their responsibilities under the Police Powers and Responsibilities Act, and unlawfully arrest our client. Often they assault them, either because the force is excessive, or because any force is unlawful. Whilst you may not get a significant fine, it pays to check the body worn camera footage – don’t plead guilty to something you didn’t do.
