Have you or a loved one been arrested or charged with an offence?

If you are accused of committing a criminal offence, it is crucial to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible. By getting in touch with us on 0333 577 0522, you can start on the road to achieving the best possible outcome in your case. 

Whether you need legal advice on a specific area of law or you’re seeking representation for yourself or a family member, the team at Lawtons, an established Bedfordshire criminal law firm, will be able to assist you. No two cases are the same and when you contact us we will provide tailored, specialist advice.

How we can help protect your future

At Lawtons we provide 24-hour legal representation, so get in touch and we can give you legal advice over the phone or in person at our Bedford office.

If you have been detained by the police, you have a right to legal advice and you must contact a criminal defence solicitor to represent you before a police                    interview or any formal questioning takes place. Needing legal assistance is not a matter of being guilty or not guilty – in fact, the more innocent you are of the crimes of which you are accused, the  more you need a solicitor representing you.

FAQs

Can I be represented by Lawtons at a police station?

At Lawtons we provide police station representation across Bedfordshire. It is crucial that you seek expert legal assistance as soon as you are able to, in the event that you are arrested, whether or not you are guilty of the crime of which you are accused.

Do I need legal representation at a voluntary interview?

If you are asked to attend any police station in Bedford on a voluntary basis, we are able to help to guide you through the procedure and specialist criminal defence representation is advised in these circumstances.

Will my solicitor represent me in court?

The work of a criminal defence solicitor covers every aspect of the legal process, other than advocacy (participation in court proceedings) as this duty is usually carried out by a barrister.
