“Defending your Rights Protecting your Interests”

ABV Solicitors are experts in defending clients facing the full range of criminal allegations. No case is too small or too big. If it is important to the client it is important to us. See our list of notable cases below.

Being accused of any criminal offence can be a daunting and distressing experience. The consequences may have far reaching effects for both the client and their family. Not only is there the risk of a loss of an individuals good character and reputation by virtue of a Criminal Record or an entry on an enhanced DBS Check, but also the risk of losing family, a career and a persons liberty.

It is essential to obtain the correct specialist representation at the earliest possible stage as decisions made from the outset, can have a significant impact on what happens next, and, whether a decision to prosecute is taken.

Putting the best team in place and taking immediate, pro-active and robust steps, such as gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, obtaining cctv, instructing experts to defend allegations, and, making representations to the prosecution in advance, could, potentially effect their decision to prosecute.
