Criminal Law Advice Bedfordshire & Luton

If you face a conviction because you have committed a crime you will need all the criminal law advice UK available to you. The law is in place both to set out for different crimes that are supposed to reflect how serious they are. Often though police prosecutors go for the highest penalties possible and these sometimes cause more serious upheaval for the alleged criminal and his or her family.

We can help with any of the following:

  • 4. Giving you correct advice on the law and legal procedures in relation to your case and helping you to understand precisely the reason why you have been accused of a crime.

Extradition

It is possible to represent yourself?

The criminal law advice UK solicitor will not recommend you defend yourself, even if you really believe you have a strong case in your favour. Police prosecutors spend a lot of time preparing their prosecutions determined to get the convictions that they have worked on by gathering evidence and arranging witnesses.

Their ability to be forceful and persuasive in court in such a way that influences both judge and jury means any defendant without an experienced criminal solicitor is likely to end up with a penalty that does not necessarily fairly match their alleged crime. It is very rare that a defendant comes out a winner in this sort of situation and most wish they had hired a solicitor to take up their case.

If you, or a family member, is being held in police custody you should remain silent until a criminal law advice solicitor is at your side to advise you while you in the police station and if need be to guide you through the stages the law require in relation to your alleged crime.
