Our expert lawyers successfully handle a wide range of cases providing you with a professional and skilled defence. We will only ever speak to you in plain English and make sure that you are kept up-to-date throughout your case. If your case goes to court, our lawyers are thorough and diligent. Our dedication is aimed at providing the best possible defence for you at the police station and in court.

Motoring Offences

Losing your driving licence can have a serious impact upon both work and family life. Walker & Co help defend drivers charged with all types of motoring offences ranging from those that carry a fine or disqualification to those where a prison sentence is possible, such as drink driving, speeding and the use of a mobile telephone. However serious the offence, the use of modern technology on our roads means that motoring charges are common. It's often very difficult to defend yourself along with being able to handle the fear, worry and stress that any type of prosecution could bring.

Walker & Co's expert lawyers, guide you through every stage of your offence or prosecution. We will explain thoroughly what the allegation is, and the evidence against you. Everything we do is presented simply, using plain English. We consider any mitigating circumstances and put together the best possible defence. If the matter goes to court, our lawyers are highly experienced at providing expert representation to secure the best possible outcome for you.

Criminal Offences

If you are suspected of a criminal offence, having the right support, representation and advice is where Walker & Co can help. Making certain you are properly represented is what we do for the full range of criminal offences.

We can assist with attending interviews, answering questions or providing the authorities, such as the police, with any evidence or information. If you are under caution, it is important to know what this means. If the matter proceeds to a formal charge and possible sanctions, expert legal advice becomes vitally important. Our thorough and diligent solicitors can also represent you at court.

Providing you with a professional and skilled defence we aim to obtain the best possible outcome – from the doors of the police station to those at the court.

Actions against the Police

Walker & Co can advise anyone who feels the police have somehow acted unprofessionally or negligently. You may have reason to claim for wrongful arrest or police mistreatment. It may be that excessive force was used or your rights have been violated, such as excessive 'stop and search' procedures. Whatever the cause, if the consequence was distress or injury, you need to understand what your rights are, and what options you have to seek compensation or damages. Our solicitors have years of experience in dealing with this.
