Criminal Defence Solicitors in London

Most people never need a criminal defence solicitor

Some do. They get a call saying their teenage son or daughter is in a police station and needs a lawyer. They are the driver in a road accident when someone is seriously injured. They are a professional person who has an unfounded allegation made against them. If this is you or someone you know you need fast, efficient and expert legal advice.

At Hodge Jones & Allen you will find a criminal defence solicitor who acts decisively, who defends your interests proactively and who robustly advises you from a depth of experience in the criminal justice system.
