Crown Court cases are the most serious and complex matters within the criminal justice system. At Tates, we appreciate that this is an intimidating arena for our clients.
Preparation for the Crown Court begins at an early stage, with the client fully advised as to the procedures and likely outcomes. Within the crime department we have seven solicitors who have attained Higher Rights of Audience, allowing them to represent you in the Crown Court and giving you continuity of representation from commencement of the case to its conclusion.
When matters are not retained in-house, experienced barristers are instructed from specialist chambers.
Crown Court cases routinely handled include:-
- Drug trafficking/importations
- Multi handed conspiracies
- Serious sexual offences
