How we can help

Criminal DefenceOur Criminal Defence Department has extensive experience in dealing with all types of Defence through the whole range of Criminal offences. We have a highly experienced team of Solicitors (some of whom are also Higher Courts Advocates, meaning if a case goes to the Crown Court, the same Advocate can deal with you from start to finish), and they are supported by a team of experienced Accredited Police Station Representatives whose job it is to assist the lawyers in the work at the Police Stations and also in the preparatory work when matters are at Court.

Public Funding (many know it as Legal Aid) is available to those who qualify. There are two qualifying criteria namely:

  •  Financial eligibility
  • The interests of justice test.

Any member of our team would be able to tell you whether you are likely to qualify for Legal Aid.

If you do not, then we will be more than happy to deal with you on a private fee-paying basis and we will be happy to give you details of our charge out rates.

At Williamsons, our aim is to achieve the best possible outcome for you in your case.

Carey Robinson acted as our Solicitor on a recent commercial purchase and she was brilliant. Carey was super efficient and we were kept up to date on every aspect of the purchase. From start to finish our "Property Auction" purchase only took 7 working days to complete. We will definitely be using Carey again and can highly recommend her 5 star service.

I have nothing but praise for Gordon Sewell at the Hull office. He conducted my unusual and difficult civil case with great care and understanding. Gordon also injected the right amount of sympathy for my plight without being unprofessional. I would recommend him to anyone needing a clued up civil litigation lawyer.

Richard K
