Experienced, professional representation for everyone

City Criminal Lawyers are solicitors specialising in Criminal Defence, Motoring Offences and Business Defence.  Whether you are investigated or prosecuted for a minor motoring offence, shoplifting, fraud or murder, your case is important.  We aim to provide appointments at short notice to ensure you receive legal advice when you need.

For 365 days a year, we provide free 24 hour expert legal advice and representation for police interviews, which includes free attendance for voluntary interviews.  Contact us if you have an appointment with the police or request to speak to us if you are arrested.  It is in your best interests to obtain free and independent legal advice before speaking to the police about any allegation.

The firm undertakes both private and legal aid work, the latter is subject to eligibility.

For Magistrates, Youth and Crown Court proceedings, we have a wealth of experience.  Our advice is both expert and practical to ensure your legal representation is first-rate in relation to the full range of criminal offences, from general crime, benefit fraud to serious and organised crime.  Our legal service covers fraud, cyber crime, importation offences including HMCE prosecutions to Counter-Terror prosecutions.  Due to cut-backs in legal aid, many other firms provide Court representation from in-house solicitor-advocates for more serious cases which are heard in the Crown Court.  All our clients benefit from having a solicitor and an independent barrister acting for them in the Crown Court and where necessary, in the Court of Appeal.  Having a highly skilled, tactically-minded and powerful legal team working for you is part of our service. 

We represent clients facing Military Police Interviews and Courts Martial anywhere. 

We assist in relation to local SIA and taxi Licence appeals. 

Our specialist Business Defence Service is available for regulatory offences to fraud and we offer our assistance from the investigation stage to prosecutions at Court.  It involves dealing with other prosecution authorities, including HMCE, HSE HMRC, Trading Standards and the BIS Criminal Enforcement Team for example.  It also covers Local Council Regulatory Defence. 

We aim to provide strong and professional support from the outset until the conclusion of your case.  Our clients come from every section of society and all walks of life.  We tailor our approach to meet your needs to ensure you have the best possible advice from a solicitor who is approachable and easy to talk to.

We offer a free initial consultation, legal aid (subject to eligibility) and with private client work, fixed fees are available.
