Legal Services for

Crime and Prison Law

The Police Station

Our duty solicitors have extensive experience in this complex and important area of work.

You are arrested by the police. What are your rights? Do I have to answer their questions? Can I consult a solicitor at any time? What will it cost me?

This is likely to be one of the most stressful experiences of your life. The legal framework of PACE and its associated codes will dictate the procedure the police must apply but they are professional and you need a professional on your side.

We offer personal attendance at the police station 24/7 365 of the year. This service is free of charge to all our clients irrespective of income or capital.

Get a professional on your side and relieve the stress and pressure with a cool head sitting alongside you in interview, challenging the police at the right moments. We have seen so many people who go into the police station unrepresented who fail to do justice to their case.

At Court

Recent changes in Court procedures means cases come to Court very quickly. There can be a matter of days between charge and Court hearing. At Alderson Law we deal with emergency situations for clients every day. The key to success is preparation and then thorough delivery by your advocate. The Alderson Law advocacy team headed by Paul Dunn have a combined total of 50 years of Magistrates Court advocacy experience. We have represented Defendants in high profile cases including the youngest child charged with murder, pre Bulger. All types of cases have been prepared of which the following is a sample only.

Road traffic, careless driving, dangerous driving, regulatory offences, insurance and tachograph.
Theft, business fraud, Credit Card fraud
Burglary, Robbery
Offences against the person, assault, wounding
Drug offences: possession, supply, conspiracy, Drug Trafficking Act

From early stages of Magistrates Court preparation to instructing a highly skilled Barrister to represent you at Crown Court, Alderson Law provides its services at the highest level.

Court of Appeal and Beyond

“Convicted and disgruntled”; that can describe a large proportion of the prison population. We are here after conviction. The area of Prisoners Rights is a developing area with the full impact of the European Court of Human Rights yet to be realised. Alderson Law can help you prepare your appeal to the Court of Appeal or Criminal Cases Review Commission. We can also help you with an early assessment of your cases whilst in Prison.
