Howards & Henry’s Solicitors is one of the country’s leading criminal law defence solicitor practices. Our criminal defence department is made up of experienced criminal defence solicitors. Our partners have appeared on national and local radio to discuss their cases. With offices in Manchester & Macclesfield we are perfectly placed to provide assistance to clients throughout Manchester, Cheshire & beyond.
Year on year the government body, the Legal Services Commission, has renewed our contract to undertake criminal defence work on a government funded basis. The number of such contracts have been in considerable decline over the past decade as the government has attempted to filter out poorly performing firms.
In fact, in 2010, the Legal Services Commission awarded this firm 3 further contracts to undertake publically-funded work in towns across the North West.
Howards & Henry’s Solicitors is also a VHCC panel member, one of only approximately 100 firms in the country, authorised to undertake publically-funded criminal work of the most serious nature.
We provide a national service which includes representation at the police station, 24 hours a day, right through to representation in the Supreme Court and, if necessary, the European Courts.
For more information and advice in relation to how we can help you please get in contact with us immediately.
Your enquiry will be treated with absolute confidence and should we take on your case you will be represented by an appropriately-qualified lawyer with the necessary knowledge and experience.
Criminal defence law is one of the few areas where legal aid is still available. If you are entitled to legal aid we will advise you accordingly and assist you in making the appropriate application. Where legal aid may not be available to you we will advise you of our fees for representing you.
