Crown Court Defence Team

Charged with a criminal offence and due to appear in Crown Court? Our Crown Court defence team are here to represent you.

Although our closest Crown Court is in Carlisle, our Criminal Law team is available to cover any Crown Court across the north of England.

With experience representing defendants in a full range of indictable cases, we will ensure you benefit from the best possible legal advice.

Our Criminal Law team includes a number of Higher Courts Advocates. Together, the team will take over the conduct of the case and represent you at the Crown Court. In addition to representing you in court, we will prepare and collect all the details of the trial or sentence case. Finally, we will put forward the pleas on your behalf.
