The Crown Court

If your case is to be heard in the Crown Court, then you will have either chosen to have your trial before a jury, or you will have been sent to the Crown Court by the Magistrates because the case is too serious.

You may also be appealing a conviction or a sentence passed by the Magistrates’ Court.

The Walker Lahive Crown Court department has an excellent reputation and will prepare your case in detail.  We are second to none in our thorough evidence gathering, consideration of the prosecution papers, and careful decision making.  Whatever your case, whether it be serious and organised crime, conspiracy, drugs offences, money laundering, cyber crime, fraud, assaults including ABH and GBH, sexual offences, human trafficking, burglary or robbery, we have the right lawyers who will guide you through the process and the hearings, will find you the right barristers and experts and ensure that you are properly represented throughout.

We are regularly instructed in the most complex and serious of Crown Court cases and we have successfully defended clients in a wide range of allegations.

Whether you are applying for bail, in need of first class counsel at trial, or for skillful mitigation at your sentence, our lawyers will discuss your options with you and ensure you receive the very best service and representation.
