Reputation matters when it comes to criminal charges

If you’re under investigation or have been charged in connection with a criminal offence, your good reputation is just as much at stake as your continued freedom. That’s why you need immediate help and guidance from a criminal defence lawyer with a reputation for successfully defending its valued clients against criminal charges.

When should I call Slater and Gordon’s criminal defence lawyers?

While being accused of criminal behaviour is always a shock, you need to keep a cool head and call us as soon as you’re aware that you’re suspected of a crime.

You should speak to one of our criminal defence lawyers at the very earliest opportunity by calling 0161 830 9632 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Or contact us and we’ll be happy to call you and discuss your situation without obligation.

How much will a criminal defence lawyer cost?

Every criminal case is unique and your Slater and Gordon lawyer will provide you a detailed quote once they’ve had the chance to examine your case. This will be based on a discussion with you, when a plan of action will be agreed. We’ll offer you a contract that sets out projected costs and a timescale either under a fixed fee arrangement or hourly rates with staged payments on account. This is intended to offer you as much certainty and transparency as possible.

Obviously, if the scale of the case changes dramatically due to new developments, we may ask you to revisit the agreement, but this is a relatively rare occurrence.

The fixed fee arrangement works exactly like a quote. You and your lawyer discuss the matter and develop a plan for how to handle it. You get a fixed fee proposal that sets out the work to be done and how the fee is to be paid. If we agree its terms, you sign the contract and our lawyers start work. Fees are charged in stages rather than on the time involved. In some complex Crown Court cases where it’s difficult to identify an appropriate fixed fee we may seek to agree fees outside of our usual fixed fee process.

We’ll also explore alternative funding options with you.

Simply call 0161 830 9632 or contact us online and we’ll be happy to call you and discuss your situation immediately.
