Criminal Defence Lawyers

We are experienced specialists in the following areas of criminal law:

Sexual Offences
Serious Violence & Assault
Driving Offence Solicitors
Regulatory Offences
Business Crime
Firearm & Drug Crime
Cyber Crime
Burglary, Theft & Criminal Damage

We pride ourselves on providing a bespoke service, catering to the individual but all the circumstances of the case, marrying the balance between the need to provide consistent, expert advice with the need for that to be delivered in a way that the client will both need and understand; we recognise that just as no individual is the same, nor is any case. From the outset of a criminal investigation or case, the balance of proactive and reactive defending is vital, we strive to achieve the best results by tailoring what we do according to what is required to achieve the best outcome possible.

As a firm that started in 2004 with these principles in mind, the founding Directors, Nick Titchener and Stephen Halloran, have sought to ensure that the individual attention to detail that the company is so famous for, continues and remains consistent throughout.

Lawtons is now one of the largest and most successful criminal defence firms in the country. However, we would say that size is irrelevant except that it’s growth and expansion is attributable to its prevailing reputation that quality rather than quantity is what matters most.

We hold true to the values we started with over a decade ago.  It is the client that instructs us, we are entrusted with their case, their lives, their livelihoods.

We do not forget that we are dealing with people, not numbers, Lawtons will offer the very best of representation in a way that reflects the needs of the client and the case.
