Criminal Defence

Our criminal defence team is committed to assisting those disadvantaged by poverty, discrimination, racism or abuse of state power. We are pleased to confirm that we provide legal aid in criminal defence matters providing the defendant is entitled to the same. We have strong expertise in Police Stations, Magistrates’ Court, Crown Courts and the Appellate Courts and provide only the highest quality defence services

Our criminal department is able to deal with all criminal offences no matter how serious they are. Mr Shah, a police station accredited representative, is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to advice and represent you at the police station.


Mr Shah has been highly praised from clients for his prompt and effective service from the beginning of the investigations at the police station right through to the conclusion of the case whether it be that the case completes at the police station, the Magistrates’ Courts or the Crown Court.

We have a reputation for our well prepared, high quality work and for assembling first rate guidance and documentation.

Our case building is excellent and based on a sound knowledge of the UK Criminal Justice system. We secure the services of the highest quality experts and barristers to ensure that we get the best possible outcome for the clients.

We can advise you of your rights and how they can be protected at any stage even before you are arrested.

Our aim is to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients. If you or someone you know is being held at the police station out of office hours then please do not hesitate to call our emergency mobile number to alert us as early as possible. Though based in London we work all over the country. We have a strong client base in other big cities of the UK.

There are a number of options available to you during your police station interview and expert advice may be required to assist you with choosing the best option. We believe that it is imperative that you receive the relevant disclosure in advance of your interview to ensure that the appropriate advice is given to you.
