A criminal conviction, even for a relatively minor offence, can have a serious impact on your future. If you have been convicted, the good news is that you may be able to appeal to have your sentence changed, or even to have your conviction overturned completely.
We have an excellent track record in successfully appealing sentences passed in both Magistrates’ and Crown Courts, and in presenting cases at the Court of Appeal and the High Court.
If you think you have grounds for an appeal, it is important to act quickly as there are usually strict time limits in place following conviction.
Make an enquiry today to find out if you have a case – we’ll call you back as soon as we can with a straight answer, no strings attached.
