We regularly attend cases on behalf of our clients in Magistrates’ Courts throughout the south of England

Around 95% of all criminal cases are completed in the Magistrates’ Court, which deals mostly with less serious crimes, motor and driving offences.

Once the defendant has been charged at the police station, the case is then sent to the Magistrates’ Court. In some cases the offender may be committed by the Magistrates to the Crown Court for sentencing if a more severe sentence is thought necessary.  You may be entitled to free legal aid at the court throughout the south of the UK and nationally. To find out if you qualify for legal aid visit our legal aid page. If you are not eligible for legal aid, contact us for a quote or a fixed fee so that you know in advance what it will cost.

We regularly attend cases on behalf of our clients in Magistrates’ Courts throughout the south. Any one of our criminal defence team is able to represent you at the Magistrates’ Court. We are committed to ensuring that the outcome of proceedings in the Magistrates’ Court is the best that you can get.

Most driving matters do not qualify for legal aid – however, we are able to assist you on a privately paid basis at very reasonable rates. For an estimate of costs, or for a fixed quote, please contact us.
