If you have been charged with a criminal offence, it can be a daunting time. You will initially have to appear before the local Magistrates Court, and should note that the Court will expect you to be in a position to proceed with the case at the first hearing.
It is rare that the Court will delay proceedings to allow you to access legal advice. You should therefore contact us as soon as possible. We can meet with you either at our office at 4 Portland Square in Workington or, if you have difficulty attending, we can arrange a home visit.
