Whether it is a minor road traffic incident or a serious crime, our criminal court solicitors are respected throughout Scotland.
They pride themselves on their knowledge and experience. We provide client representation at all levels, from sheriff court to the high court and court of appeal.
We can help with any of the following charges and offences:
Our solicitors have more than 50 years' experience in criminal court work and appear regularly at local courts. This means that they have strong working relationships with and hold the respect of Scotland’s judges and clerks.
Our criminal defence lawyers also enjoy a healthy professional relationship with the many local procurator fiscals and their deputes. Such relationships have been built up over many years and the mutual trust and respect facilitates discussion, negotiation where appropriate, and resolution for our clients.
Their experience and in-depth knowledge of Scotland’s criminal law enables them to both advise and represent clients to the very highest of standards in all of Scotland’s courts, be that personally or through careful selection of the appropriate criminal advocate.
We appreciate that being interviewed by the police and/or facing a criminal court appearance can be a traumatic and for many an unfamiliar and potentially unsettling experience.
We therefore ensure we deliver personal and attentive yet highly professional support and advice.
Whilst we represent clients in both blue collar and privately-funded criminal matters, criminal legal aid forms the majority of our caseload.
We appreciate that many clients are unable to fund their defence without causing hardship to themselves or their family. Our criminal lawyers are all registered with the Scottish Legal Aid Board to provide criminal legal assistance to anyone facing a criminal charge.
Many people are eligible for legal aid, even if they are in employment and our solicitors will always assist in determining whether you are eligible or not.

Everything went very smoothly and Erin Shand gave us excellent advice on filling in the paperwork. She kept us up to date and helped us out a lot - meaning there wasn’t much for us to do on our side.
