Criminal Law

At PS Law, our criminal defence solicitors have a first class track record and a wealth of experience in representing individuals and businesses in all types of cases ranging from minor motoring offences to prosecutions for serious crimes carrying life imprisonment. With the skill and expertise we have to offer, we are able to deliver the best service at every level, from the police station to the higher courts. We offer an emergency service, 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

Our team of specialist criminal defence lawyers appear daily at police stations and courts throughout Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire  and beyond as client needs dictate, to represent both private individuals and commercial organisations in prosecutions brought by, e.g. the Crown Prosecution Service, Local Authorities, the Health and Safety Executive and the Environment Agency.

We remain committed to providing publicly funded representation as well as acting for private fee paying clients. We hold a Specialist Quality Mark from the Legal Aid Agency.  Our specialist criminal defence lawyers and motoring offence solicitors understand the importance of protecting your reputation or that of your business. We are a friendly, accessible team, who simply care about getting the best possible result for you. We will use clear language in all our dealings with you. We will do all that we can to put you at ease in what can often be very stressful circumstances. We will guide you through the legal process and give practical advice aimed at achieving the best possible outcome.

Not only do we have a strong in-house team of advocates, we are also able to offer you the full range of barristers who work independently in Chambers to present your case. We also work closely with a whole range of other experts such as forensic scientists and medical experts who we can engage in order to protect your interests.

Arrest and Police Station Advice

Your initial dealings with the police at the outset of a criminal investigation can form the basis of an ultimately successful defence. It is essential that you contact us at this critical stage in order to ensure that the foundations of your defence are soundly laid, and you are advised correctly.

At PS Law, we provide a 24 hour telephone advice service, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, to ensure that we are on hand, whatever the time of day or night, to provide you with urgent support. We have an energetic team of solicitors and accredited representatives with considerable experience of advising suspects at police stations and capable of responding to client need at police stations anywhere in the country.

Remember that advice at the police station is usually FREE irrespective of your means.
