Our Expertise

Criminal Law

At Black and Co we have a small but specialised and highly skilled criminal defence team that undertakes every aspect of criminal law in the Magistrates' Court, Crown Court and Court of Appeal. We pride ourselves on our dedication and ability to provide a proactive forensic and investigative approach to all of our case preparation, ensuring a diligent but sensitive representation for all of our clients.

We are able to offer free pre-charge advice and assistance for people who meet the means-tested criteria, free post-charge legal aid work for people whose cases the court considers merits the grant of legal aid and meet the means-tested criteria, and private client work for cases where legal aid or advice and assistance are not permitted.

We always strive to put the interests and welfare of our clients first, at what for many of our clients is a very stressful and upsetting time. We try to ensure that our clients fully understand what is happening and why, and allow the client to make fully informed decisions as to how their case is progressed. We believe that a person is innocent of a crime until proven guilty, and try to make that a reality in every case we deal with.

If you are under investigation for an alleged criminal offence, or have been summonsed or charged with a criminal offence, then please contact us for assistance. Please feel free to telephone us, or email one of our department stating your name, address, contact phone number and the nature of your enquiry, and we will contact you back as soon as possible. For urgent enquiries we would prefer clients to telephone.
