5 Reasons to Hire a Criminal Solicitor

Whenever you have been charged with a criminal offence, it is best to find a criminal solicitor to help you along the way. Having a criminal solicitor that will process your case in the best possible way is a must in order to find a fair and balanced outcome.

Reduce Stress from Criminal Charges

Being charged with a criminal offence can be a very stressful and pressurising experience. You will start to ask questions like what do I do? How do I get out of this? What is going to happen? A criminal solicitor can help you answer all of those questions and more.

Processing a criminal case takes its toll on a person. If you try to start collecting evidence and fight your case single handedly, you will find yourself absorbed in anxiety and stress. Until found guilty you are innocent, and it is not worth damaging your physical or mental health for. An experienced criminal solicitor will handle everything for you and take the burden from your shoulders, guiding you through and out of the stress of a criminal case.

Assurance From the Experts

Finding a criminal solicitor will give you the peace of mind to know that you are in safe hands and are moving in the right direction. Our criminal defence team here at Newton Law Practice has a wealth of experience in all areas of criminal law, from sensitive and personal allegations to the most serious cases of them all.

Representation on Your Behalf

Criminal solicitors can not only represent you in court but speak on your behalf during the police investigation. A good criminal lawyer can handle pressure very calmly and they will know what your rights are, when you otherwise might not. Criminal solicitors will offer you the best advice as to what you should and shouldn’t say, ensuring that nothing incriminating is said to damage your case.

Newton Law criminal solicitors can help defend you with expert representation and advice every step of the way, providing you the highest chance of a favourable outcome. Attending the Crown Court can be a nerve wracking experience, which is why we are here to ease your worries and anxieties.

The Best Defence in Court

Without a criminal solicitor, you will not have the best possible defence when it comes to court. Criminal cases usually involve a number of steps such as arrest, bail, arraignment, preliminary hearing, pretrial motions, trial, sentencing, and appeal. Each of these stages need to be handled with a lot of expertise and care. A good criminal solicitor has the expertise to go through all of these stages efficiently and calmly.

Criminal solicitors know how to gather evidence, question witnesses, which line of questioning to follow, and how to get the jury on your side during the court process. If you are charged and your case progresses to the Crown Court, our court solicitors at Newton Law will scrutinise the Prosecution evidence and make sure you are as prepared as you possibly can be.

Achieve the Best Outcome for Your Case

No matter the outcome of your case, a criminal solicitor will find the best possible outcome in each scenario. If you are charged, criminal lawyers have good connections and can get you the best outcome out of the worst scenario. Solicitors know when to file for a plea in mitigation, allowing you to serve the least possible time. Lawyers can also negotiate with the prosecutor for future reduction of charges and a shorter jail time.
