Meet St James Solicitors

St James Solicitors is committed to providing a friendly, efficient and professional service.

We always put our clients first. We understand that clients need us to provide sound advice and effective representation in court. We understand that people are arrested at all times of day or night.

For that reason our solicitors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to clients held in custody by the police under arrest.

For all of our other clients, we work hard to keep lines of communication open and are happy to use email, telephone, skype or even text message in addition to face-to-face meetings if it means that we can keep in touch and do the best job possible in a case.


Founded in 2002 as a specialist criminal law practice, the firm has established a reputation as a leader in its field and is only one of two firms in the local area listed in Chambers and Partners “Guide to the Legal Profession”.  This year’s entry in the guide describes the firm as an “Exeter powerhouse defending private and publicly funded clients in all types of criminal cases. Noted for its in-house advocacy capacity and knowledge of the local community”.
