Criminal Defence

At John Poyser solicitors we have a vast wealth of experience and talent within our criminal defence team. Our criminal defence solicitors understand that being accused of any criminal offence is a stressful time for both our client and their families and the serious impact that any verdict can have upon their lives. That is why it is so important to seek expert legal advice if you have been charged with a criminal offence or are worried that you may be charged in the future.

Our Criminal Defence Services are provided by DPP Law. It is through the DPP Law Criminal Defence contract, that our clients are able to apply for Legal Aid.

How We Can Help You

You never know when you may need to have the assistance of a criminal defence solicitor, that is why our lawyers can help you in many situations.
We offer free representation at police stations. Whether you have just been arrested or if you have been summoned for an interview under caution, John Poyser solicitors can offer you excellent legal representation during this difficult time.

We are also able to represent you in interviews with the Department for Work and Pensions. If you are being investigated by the DWP you may be facing charges of fraud such as benefit or tax fraud that can affect you and your whole family. You may be forced to move from your home, repay monies owed or even face a prison sentence. Therefore it is imperative that if you are called to an interview by the DWP that you have excellent legal counsel at all times.

If your case is taken to court, John Poyser solicitors can act on your behalf at both Magistrates and Crown court. Your case may begin in Magistrates court but then be moved to Crown court. Our criminal defence solicitors can guide you through this process and offer you reassurance throughout this time. We can guarantee that our solicitors will work tirelessly for you and achieve the very best possible result for your case.

In many cases, legal aid may be available to help you. If you would like to have more information regarding legal aid then please contact us. It can be complicated to determine if you can qualify for legal aid and some matters you may not qualify for legal aid such as some driving offences.
