Criminal Defence

A criminal summons or charge is often the start of a long and worrying process. With Hegarty Solicitors on your side, your prospects could quickly take a turn for the better.

We have many years of experience in defending all kinds of criminal cases including road traffic offences, thefts, burglaries, violent crimes, sexual offences, fraud and corporate crime.

You may be at risk of losing your driving licence, or facing a prison sentence for something more serious.  Whatever the charge, you will have to deal with strict procedures and complicated legal concepts and arguments. This can be quite a challenge, particularly against the backdrop of uncertainty about what will happen and how the outcome could affect you and your family.

When you instruct us, you are in safe hands. Not only are we likely to have dealt with cases like yours, our expertise is recognised nationally. We are among just two per cent of criminal defence departments in England and Wales to hold an Excellence (1) rating – the highest possible – following our most recent Legal Services Commission Peer Review.

So, in us, you will have one of the best firms in the country working on your case. We are on-call all day, every day. We listen and we advise in plain-English and with honesty, beginning with a conversation about what we think is likely to happen and how much your defence will cost. From then on we will prepare your case rigorously, deal with all the paperwork and procedural requirements and use our extensive contacts with barristers and expert witnesses to ensure that the outcome is the best it can be.

I couldn't have expected more - thank you.
