Our accomplished, passionate and emotionally intelligent Criminal Proceedings team understands that being involved in criminal investigations and proceedings can be a stressful and frightening experience for anyone, particularly if you are arrested and held in custody – even for a short period.

If you find yourself in this situation, it is vital to have someone in your corner to explain clearly what your rights are, how you should conduct yourself, what you should and should not say while under arrest and how best to proceed.

No-one can do this job better for you than the Criminal Proceedings team at Thomson Webb & Corfield. The team is comprised of two outstanding solicitors. Nick Symonds has an excellent reputation in serious crime. Nick Barnes undertakes high profile and complex cases. The team specialises in defending prosecutions by government bodies such as the Royal Mail, The Environment Agency and HMRC.

The Criminal Proceedings team offers legal advice to clients facing charges in areas including:

We provide essential advice and support throughout any period of detention and can prepare you for an appearance at the Magistrate’s Court, the Crown Court, higher courts or the Court of Appeal. We can also find the best barrister and instruct them on your behalf. As a result, clients often come back to us and other firms in the city regularly recommend us.

We offer Legal Aid to private clients and will apply for Legal Aid whenever we can subject to the Governments eligibility criteria. We also offer cost effective and when available, bespoke private funding arrangements to both personal and business clients.
