Criminal Defence


Caveat Solicitors can act for you in relation to privately funded criminal prosecutions. We are able to assist you in all aspects of criminal law from initial advice to representation at the Magistrates Court, Crown Court and through to the Court of Appeal.

We offer a highly-professional service to help you through the criminal justice system. Our aim is to defend your rights vigorously, pro-actively and to keep you informed at every step of your matter.

Caveat Solicitors are often instructed by clients who are due to attend court or need advice at short notice. In such circumstances, we will prioritise your case and assist you in getting through a difficult time as smoothly as possible.

We appreciate that many people feel dissatisfied with the service they receive from solicitors when their cases are funded by the Legal Aid scheme as restrictions of the Legal Aid system can place constraints on the delivery of the highest levels of service and thereby affect quality.

When you are funding your case yourself, a solicitor will be dedicated to your case and will be accessible at any time to deal with your concerns. You will be provided a premium service by highly qualified staff with extensive experience in all aspects of crime. It is often the case that in privately funded cases, courts are more likely to allocate fixed dates for trial.

Furthermore, private funding allows your solicitor to investigate and pursue enquiries which are often curtailed under the Legal Aid provisions.

Caveat Solicitors can offer low rates to represent you in your criminal matter and may also be able to work for you on a fixed fee basis.

Please contact us today to speak to one of our solicitors who will be able to discuss the funding arrangements with you and will be pleased to answer any queries that you may have.

You may be entitled to public funding and always have the option to pursue this, you can obtain further information from the Legal Aid Agency
