Criminal Defence

If you have been arrested or the police want to interview you as a potential suspect it is essential that you are represented by a competent and experienced Solicitor.

Advice at the Police Station

We provide a 24 hour service, all year round, to all clients requiring representation at the police station. This is funded by the Legal Services Commission and therefore the service is provided to you free of charge. If you are arrested by the Police in connection with an investigation into a possible criminal offense, you have an automatic right to free and independent legal advice. We at Dorians are able to provide comprehensive representation at a Police Station, 24 hours a day.

Criminal Defence

If you have been charged with a criminal offence and are being prosecuted in the Magistrates or Crown Court having immediate access to highly skilled and professional advisers is vital.

In the event of you having to go to Court, you will be advised if you are eligible for Legal Aid to help prepare and present your case to either the Magistrates or the Crown Court. Legal Aid is now subject to a Means Test in the Magistrates and Crown Court and you will be advised by us of your eligibility for Legal Aid, subject to that Means Test at the earliest possible stage.
