Our specialist criminal law solicitors cover all the criminal courts and are on hand, day or night, to offer you practical advice and representation should you have a brush with "the law".
We are equipped to provide you with a full range of services.
At the police station: You never know when you might need us.
Our criminal justice system is constantly changing – It’s easy to think this won't affect you but anyone can be accused of a crime. Not all cases investigated by the police go to court and getting legal advice early in the investigation can often avoid court proceedings. Involvement with the Police is often unexpected and no one is immune. There were over 3000 interviews under caution at Barnstaple Police Station last year, so chances are you know someone who has been interviewed.
If you are asked to attend the police station for interview or are arrested then you should remember that you have the right to receive free legal advice from an independent solicitor specialising in criminal law.
At Court: don’t struggle alone
Our aim is to achieve the very best possible outcome for you no matter what the charge. Court proceedings can be very stressful whether or not you admit the allegation you face. Our solicitors deal with court hearings every day and can advise and help you through this difficult time. We will tell you what to expect, make sure you understand the law relating to your case, help you apply for legal aid and, most importantly, fight your corner all the way.
Slee Blackwell Solicitors know that your driving licence is important to you. With the spread of both manned and unmanned speed detection devices across the country it is even easier for the most careful of drivers to experience the embarrassment and frustration of an envelope through the door.
According to the Home Office, Police are involved in a staggering 1.8 million speed limit offences every year. That accounts for over 30% of the offences they deal with!
For most of us it may be the only time we have to deal with the Police or the Courts but it can be unsettling particularly if a conviction could mean losing your licence, your job or even your liberty.
Speedy specialist advice can put your mind at rest and by assisting you with the completion of the Court forms we can help you put your case to the court.
For traffic offences, Slee Blackwell operates a standard fee system
For advice, assistance and representation at court concerning any allegation we can arrange a fixed fee.
