The Criminal Law Department offers a wide range of expert advice in relation to, not only criminal allegations but we also have a considerable expertise in respect of Road Traffic Law matters.
A 24 hour emergency call out service is provided for all our Clients which is operated on an in-house basis by experienced lawyers in this field of work. It is essential that the best advice is given as early as possible in every case as this may obviously avoid the necessity of court appearances.
The Criminal Law in England and Wales is basically divided into two court centres, the Magistrates' Court and the Crown Court. If the proceedings are brought, they will normally commence in the Magistrates' Court, however if serious matters are faced then trial by jury at the Crown Court may be required or, in certain circumstances, advised for lesser allegations.
As a department, we have specialist Solicitors who deal with Magistrates as well as Crown Court work. We also have a number of highly experienced staff with a wealth of knowledge for preparing cases not only in the Crown Court but the Court of Appeal as well.
Legal Aid is normally available for the more serious allegations subject of course to an individual's means.
Where a young person is taken to court and ordered to pay fines, the parents must pay up unless it would be 'unreasonable' for them to do so. A persistent offender under the age of ten could be taken to into local authority care. Children of ten and over can be convicted where it can be shown that they knew what they were doing was wrong.
