If you need criminal defence, youâ€™re likely to face a very challenging time. And sadly, Legal Aid is no longer always available in criminal cases. Even where it is, the firms that offer it are under government financial restraint.
Your fate could be in the hands of lawyers receiving a government-set standard fee. Thatâ€™s not going to produce the best outcome.
At Barber and Co., weâ€™ve over 25 yearsâ€™ experience of all aspects of criminal defence work. We can guide you through the process to achieve the best result possible.
Over the last few decades, weâ€™ve achieved outstanding results for our clients. Whether thatâ€™s in the police station interview, in the magistratesâ€™ court, Crown Court, or even in the High Court and Court of Appeal.
Everyone is entitled to representation throughout the criminal process. If you need advice on being questioned by the police or if youâ€™re required to attend court on summons or charge, we can advise, support and represent you at every stage of the process.
Driving prosecutions can have devastating effects on your personal and working life. Again, Legal Aid is no longer an option for most driving offences.
Even in a case where thereâ€™s no defence, we can limit the effects of prosecution. That could mean keeping your licence or a reduced ban. Weâ€™ve been getting outstanding results for 25 years, and we can do so for you.
Under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, authorities have far-reaching powers to seize and retain money resulting from crime. Special courts are run to deal with these cases.
Weâ€™ve huge experience in this area of law. We work with other professionals to build a team to protect your interests and assets. A strong team of professionals will be vital to rebuffÂ the Asset Recovery Agency and defend you from the Crown Prosecution Service.
