Criminal Law

Humphrys Dawson understands how worrying and stressful it can be to be subject to criminal investigation whether in respect of a motoring offence or theft allegations to serious crimes including assault, drug offences or murder. Our specialist, hugely experienced criminal solicitors are on hand 24 hours a day to assist and ready travel to wherever you are in the country to represent you.


We have been advising and representing people who find themselves accused of a criminal offence and subject to police investigation, whatever the reason, for over 30 years. Our reputation has been built not only on the highest quality legal advice and representation but also by our plain-speaking and friendly approach.


We are accredited under the Law Society Criminal Litigation Accreditation scheme which covers all types of criminal law work. This means that as members, we have demonstrated through external examination that we have and will maintain a high level of knowledge, skills, experience and practice in the area of criminal litigation.


Our eight-strong team of experienced criminal lawyers of accredited police station representatives and duty solicitors includes one Higher Court Advocate and in-house Criminal Barrister which means we can provide consistent representation with sound, straightforward advice from the outset to the conclusion of your case.


We are contracted by the Legal Aid Agency and can help you apply for Legal Aid which is means-tested. Where you may not be eligible for Legal Aid we will advise and inform you fully from the outset of your case of the likely costs involved and payment options open to you.
