AREAS OF PRACTICE

We deal with ALL common law offences; from the most minor to the most serious offence, our approach is as the same; detailed investigation that explores every avenue, pro-active and determined representation at the police station and at Court, and a commitment to providing the best advice and explanation of the law.

 

Our case building excellence is based on a sound knowledge of the criminal justice system and our ability to assemble first-rate evidence and documentation. We also secure the services of the highest quality experts to ensure that we get the best possible outcome for our clients.

 

We represent clients from the very outset of a criminal investigation, at the police station stage right to the very end, namely the trial stage. It is usually at the police station when a case is at its most vulnerable stage; where mistakes or errors of judgment could be made which in turn could result in unfavourable outcomes for those under investigation.

 

As Morgan Has Solicitors we have a legal aid franchise from the Legal Services Commission to be able to offer publicly funded work. Our assistance at the police station is automatically covered by the legal help scheme. Our work at the representation stage (i.e. at Court) is subject or means testing depending on your individual means.

 

If you or someone you know is being held out of normal office hours, waste no time in calling our emergency crime number to alert us as early as possible on 07932 374 515.
