We are able to assist you upon all matters involving Criminal Law ranging from the very outset at the Police Station to the Crown Court and even appeal beyond to the Higher Courts.
It is likely that if you are suspected of a criminal offence that you will be interviewed at a Police Station and we will be able to attend with you no matter what time of day or night, or day of the week your attendance at the Police Station takes place.
It is likely that we will be able to provide this service at no fee to yourself as Police Station attendances are nearly always covered by the Legal Aid scheme.
Assistance at the Police Station may result in no further action being taken against you or possible alternative disposals such as a caution or a warning rather than a prosecution.
Our attendance at the Police Station may also result in your release from custody sooner than otherwise and we may make representation as to bail which will result in no conditions or less onerous conditions being imposed upon you.
We hold a Legal Aid Agency franchise and contract and subject to a means test and the merits of the case you may qualify for Legal Aid to cover your proceedings in both the Magistrates Court and Crown Court if necessary.
We have many years experience in applying for Legal Aid meaning that in many cases our fees will be met by public funds.
If you are not able to qualify for Legal Aid you should note that if you are successfully acquitted or the charges are dropped that our fees would be payable by way of a Defendant’s Costs Order from Central Funds again leaving you with nothing to pay.
If you do need to instruct us on a private paying basis we will keep you up to date with our costs and provide detailed estimates for each and every stage of your case.
Should your case proceed to the Crown Court we will instruct a Barrister on your behalf who will represent you in the Crown Court.
We have experience in dealing with all matters of Criminal Law ranging from the relatively minor matters of criminal damage and public disorder to the most serious matters including rape and murder.
If we can be of assistance to you please contact our offices to speak to one of our team or alternatively if you are arrested please notify the custody sergeant when being booked in that you would wish for Maples to represent you and we will be contacted and attend.
