ABV Solicitors: the difference a criminal solicitor can make
21 Dec 2020

We hope this isn’t you. You’ve been asked to go to the police station voluntarily to answer some questions; you get formally investigated and before you know it, you’ve been charged. You don’t know what to do or say to make things appear to other people as you know them to be; when you speak it just sounds wrong and it feels like a nightmare that isn’t about to end any time soon. If this is you, you need expert advice, guidance and representation with a criminal solicitor. At ABV Solicitors, we are here to make a positive difference to your outcome in a criminal proceeding and we are leaders in our field.

Expertise and experience

When you need a criminal solicitor, you will want to find a professional who has the experience and knowledge to get you the best outcome for you. ABV Solicitors is classed as leaders in our field by the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners. We have extensive experience in every area of criminal law, so if you need representation we’re here to help, no matter how serious or minor the case may be.

First steps you need to take

Being accused of something criminal can be daunting and confusing. It can cause huge anxiety and this is where we can step in and help to take control of the situation with our criminal solicitor. We understand that cases of any nature in criminal law can have wide ranging effects on clients who are accused, even when they are found not guilty. DBS checks and reputations can be affected, for example. We want to prevent clients from potentially losing jobs, family and their liberty. Because of the serious implications, it is of paramount importance that you get legal representation as early as possible; whether you’ve been asked to go to the police station for a voluntary interview, or whether it has reached a more formal stage, we can help. All you need to do is contact us at any time that suits you. We are available 24/7 as we know that investigations don’t just operate in 9-5 hours.

What we will do

We will provide you with the representation you need at the police station or in court, whether it be in the Magistrates Court or the Crown Court. We have access to leading barristers and QCs, and we will do any investigative work required to build you the best defence. We will interview any witnesses, and instruct forensic experts, if required; we will also obtain any relevant evidence such as CCTV footage. We are committed to getting all of the evidence we need to make a robust defence case for you.

If you are concerned about a criminal matter and you feel that you may need representation, contact us initially and we can advise you on how to proceed. We want you to do what’s best for you and we are highly experienced in getting the best outcomes for our clients. Remember that the sooner you act, the sooner you can get a team of people around you who will work to make your life better.
