Our specialist appeal team have extensive experience in providing secondary advice on appeal following conviction and sentence in the Crown Court.
We deal with both privately funded and legally aided clients. We handle all types of criminal cases on appeal, including:
Murder/Manslaughter • Violent Offences
Drug offences • Theft
Burglary • Rape and sex offences
Robbery • Fraud
Blackmail • False imprisonment
There is no automatic right to an appeal against a conviction or sentence from the Crown Court, permission to appeal will need to be granted by the Court of Appeal before they hear your case. The law in this area is complex and any potential appellant will require specialist advice if they are to give themselves the best chance of success.
Our appeal department deals solely in advising clients who want to appeal but have either been told that they don't have grounds to appeal by their original solicitors or barrister or have been given no advice at all. We have provided positive advice in many of these cases and successfully contested numerous full hearings before the Court of Appeal.
We will work closely with you to ensure that all of your grievances with the safety of your conviction and/or the length of your sentence are fully addressed by an independent barrister with experience in appealing cases in which they were not instructed in the Crown Court.
If you believe your conviction is unsafe or your sentence is too long, contact us on: 020 7353 7000 or freephone: 0800 051 10 66
