All solicitors in our Crime department are police station representatives, which means they can represent clients from the outset of a criminal investigation. This is usually when a case is at its most vulnerable and when mistakes or errors of judgment could be made which could result in unfavourable outcomes for those under investigation. With four offices across London, we can reach you within 45 minutes.
In addition, we now have a number of highly experienced Higher Court Advocates who have conducted serious matters including murder and rape. We are also able to advise on appeals against conviction or sentence.
We are particularly expert in the often highly technical issues raised in road traffic offences.
Experienced in serious and minor cases, the Duncan Lewis Crime department’s aim is to achieve the best possible outcome for you. If you or someone you know is being held out of normal office hours, waste no time in calling one of our emergency crime numbers to alert us as early as possible.
