Do you need a criminal solicitor? You need ABV Solicitors!
20 Feb 2023

If you have been accused of a criminal offence, whether it is a minor or more serious offence, it can risk your reputation, employment and even liberty. The ramifications of an accusation or a conviction could also affect your loved ones via association with you. It is, therefore, vital that you seek support from a criminal solicitor as soon as you can to try and get the best possible outcome for your case; one that is fair based on your circumstances. At ABV Solicitors, we are proud to have been repeatedly cited by Chambers and Partners, and The Legal 500, as being a leading firm, most recently in 2023. The Times has also included us in their report of the best law firms in 2023; this has only been achieved because of the skills, expertise and dedication of our criminal solicitor. We specialise in criminal law and provide a dedicated and personalised service to every client.

How we can help

If you are being called into the police station for questioning, you will likely be highly emotional and could be feeling overwhelmed by the situation. It is imperative that you think clearly enough to call us at any time, wherever you are in the UK, and our criminal solicitor will be with you at the police station. During questioning, our solicitor will ensure that all processes are being followed by the police and will advise you on the questions being asked, taking some of the pressure off your shoulders. At this earliest stage, our solicitor’s intervention could be the difference between charges being brought against you or them being dropped. It is far more likely that they will be dropped if you have legal representation with you. However, if charges are brought against you, we will then get straight to work on building a strong defence case for you.

How can you help to build a defence case?

The burden of proof is on the prosecution to prove that you are guilty beyond all reasonable doubt. We will work to build a defence that calls into question the evidence that they may have. We do this by finding evidence, such as CCTV footage, to support your version of events. We can also interview expert witnesses, such as forensics experts, whose opinions will strengthen your case. We will be available to answer any of your questions every step of the way.

Going to court

In the first instance, your case will go to the Magistrates’ Court. If it is a minor offence, it will be dealt with here, and we will represent you. However, if the crime you are accused of is beyond the Magistrates’ judicial power, your case will be referred by them to the Crown Court. We work with excellent barristers and QCs, who have proven track records, and we will continue to support their work during the trial to ensure that you have the best defence case possible.

If you are looking for experienced, successful and dedicated solicitors, call us at ABV Solicitors. We can help you wherever you are in the UK.
