Young People & The Law

Hodge Jones and Allen has a highly experienced youth criminal defence team which specialises in helping and representing young people and their families. Hodge Jones & Allen is ranked as one of the top 10 criminal defence law firms in London according to the 2013 Legal 500 publication.

Contact with the police while under arrest, on the street or at court can be intimidating and distressing. Young people tell us the process is complicated and leaves them confused. Whatever the offence, we can provide the best legal advice and support for your child at a difficult time.

We understand that there is more to your child than the issue that brings them into contact with the criminal justice system. We work with you and your child to identify the ways in which we can avoid prosecution then educate and support them in avoiding or managing future contact with the police and criminal justice system.

Hodge Jones & Allen works closely with the charity, Just for Kids Law, which helps young people in difficulty with the criminal justice system. Just for Kids Law is based in our office allowing us to complement our legal services with the care and support that our youth clients need.

If you or your child have been arrested, or are at any stage of criminal prosecution, please contact our specialist team of solicitors, led by Aika Stephenson, on 0800 437 0080. Alternatively fill out an online enquiry form and we can arrange for a confidential, no obligation discussion of your particular circumstances. If the situation is urgent and outside office hours, please call our free phone 24 hour telephone number 07659 111 192.
