Criminal Law

Specialist legal advice when you need it.

When you need representation in the criminal courts or at the police station, Hurleys Solicitors’ team of criminal law experts are on hand around the clock.
Our expert lawyers have experience in all areas of criminal law whether you, a family member, friend or colleague need representation, our friendly team is ready and is available to attend at the police station, free of charge – 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. We can also attend Benefit Fraud interviews subject to financial elegibility.
We can also act for you in cases before the Magistrates Court and Crown Court in relation to all offences including:
  • Violent offences
  • Sexual offences
  • Drug offences
  • Organised crime
  • White collar crime
  • Benefit fraud
  • Motoring offences
  • Local authority prosecutions
We also instruct Barristers (known as Counsel) from Chambers in Bournemouth, Winchester and London if your case is heard in the Crown Court to ensure that you are given the best representation. We always endeavor to use our experience to select the most appropriate Counsel for you and your case.
With over 60 years combined experience between our lawyers we have successfully defended in some of the most serious of cases.
We appreciate that attending either a Police Station or a court can be a frightening and daunting experience for many people. That is why we try to ensure that our clients understand the issues relating to their case. We do our best not to talk in “legal jargon” and we put quality service at the top of our priorities.
Hurleys Solicitors Ltd hold a contract with the Legal Aid Agency to provide specialist advice and representation in respect of criminal allegations. In order to hold this contract we are subject to independent audits from the Legal Aid Agency to ensure the quality of our work. Our contract with the Legal Aid Agency means that we can represent you free of charge in some cases under the scheme. We represent clients both locally and nationally.
For motoring offences such as speeding and drink driving Hurleys can offer a fixed fee service, ensuring you know your legal costs up front.
