Charged with a serious crime?
Being arrested for or accused of a serious crime can be life changing. It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the process and if you or your loved ones are in this situation, it makes sense to have the best team around you, ready to fight your corner.
At St James Solicitors we believe that everyone deserves a fair trial, no more, no less. No two serious crimes are ever the same – each case is as individual as people we represent. For that reason, the service we offer is tailored to the specific circumstances and demands of the one person who matters – our client. Our case preparation will include putting together a team of specialists who will work hard to get the right outcome for you. From arranging independent investigators to finding the most knowledgeable expert witnesses and choosing the best barristers to present your case in the Crown Court, we will do everything we can to make sure your case is as well prepared as it possibly can be.
However serious the crime you are accused of, our team of experienced solicitors have a proven track record handling murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, drug and serious sexual and assault cases. Whatever the allegation is, whatever the circumstances are, we listen and we help. We pride ourselves on being approachable and compassionate because we know that part of getting through the process is having someone to turn to when you feel overwhelmed who is clear, concerned and above all fair.
Unlike most solicitors, our lawyers are criminal specialists. The can help with the things most law firms can’t. Like police interviews. Or trials in magistrates courts and crown courts.
Best of all? They are real people. So, they speak real English. They give you honest facts. They support you when you need it most. In other words: you’re in safe hands with St. James.
