We understand that clients will be dealing with stressful circumstances and will not want their reputations to be affected. We offer a discreet and confidential service and we will work tirelessly to give you the best defence with our criminal solicitor.

What you need to do

If you have been accused of a criminal offence, you need to ensure that you seek representation with a criminal solicitor as soon as possible. It is imperative that you get the advice and guidance that you need; how you proceed can have a big impact upon what happens to you next and whether or not the decision to prosecute is made. At ABV Solicitors, our expertise and experience will enhance your experience of the legal process. We are recognised by the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners as leaders in our field. If you are in a situation where you need a criminal solicitor, whether you’ve been charged, are on bail or have been asked to attend a voluntary interview, you just need to give us a call any time of day, any day of the week. We’re here for you.

What does a solicitor for criminals do?

First thing’s first, you are innocent until proven guilty, but there is no escaping the fact that labels can be applied to people unfairly, especially when future DBS checks are affected by any charges made against individuals. As soon as we are brought in, we will be working on your defence. We will provide representation at the police station; we will also start to build your case by interviewing any witnesses or expert witnesses, getting relevant evidence such as CCTV footage, and we will also hold discussions with prosecutors, which may affect whether or not they decide to prosecute. These representations can make a difference to the whole course of action taken against you and this is where our expertise can really help. At ABV Solicitors, we have access to leading barristers and QCs; we also liaise with leading forensic experts and instruct them as required.


It can be worrying considering how to pay for legal representation when you weren’t expecting to need it. We accept payment through legal aid or those paying through legal insurance. For those wishing to pay privately, we offer competitive and bespoke funding options for payment. If you are successful in your case, you can also potentially recoup some of the expenses of going to court if this happens to you. You can apply for money with a defence costs order.

So, if you are struggling with a difficult legal situation right now that requires a crime solicitor, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Calling us any time of day, any day of the week is crucial to getting you the best outcomes. We know that you will be stressed and anxious about proceedings; let us take some of the burden off your shoulders and start getting your team around you, for you.
