CRIMINAL DEFENCE FAQS

Knowing who to trust when you’re facing a criminal defence case can be tough. You need to look for experience and expertise. At Knightsbridge we have a team of expert and dedicated criminal defence lawyers, experienced across a range of cases from fraud defence, to robbery, to murder, as well as motoring and even terrorism. Knowing you have an expert in your corner will give you peace of mind.

Importantly, you do not have to stick with the duty solicitor you were assigned at the police station. You have the right to choose the best criminal defence solicitor for you, and if you want to change during the process of your case then you can. However, do note that continuity can be key to fully understanding your case in the time frame dictated by the courts. Therefore, if for any reason you wish to change from your existing Knightsbridge solicitor please get in touch and we will endeavour to keep you within our team of experts who will be familiar with your case.

We understand that it is important to have a clear understanding of the likely costs you will incur. Your criminal defence cost will depend on a multitude of factors, such as the complexity and nature of the case, including whether it goes to court, meaning that there is no ‘set’ cost. To find out more about how much your particular case will cost by calling us today on 0115 824 170, we’ll be happy to help.

We are fortunate to have a team of legal experts with a range of experience across different criminal defence disciplines. As such, we help to match you with the criminal defence solicitor most suited to your individual case whether that is fraud defence, motoring defence, terrorism defence, or another criminal defence.

We understand that this can be an extremely daunting and worrying time, especially if you haven’t experienced contact with the police before.

We can certainly listen to your situation and where appropriate we can take third-party instructions. We will ultimately require the permission of the accused, but you can choose to pay for their fees through an arrangement directly with us.
