Here when you need us

At Lawtons we provide 24/7 legal representation, and are available in person at our Luton office or over the phone. Please make an appointment in order to speak to us at our Luton office.

If you have been detained by the police, it is vital that a criminal defence solicitor is present before any form of formal questioning or a police interview takes place. Contact Lawtons as soon as you are able to do so. This is the first step you can take towards achieving the best possible outcome in your case.

What should I do if I am summoned to magistrates’ court?

If you receive a postal requisition, which is a summons to magistrates’ court, you will be told what offence you are accused of and when you are expected in court. Please contact us if this happens in order to ascertain the best course of action. 

I don’t know whether I am guilty or not guilty. What should I do?

In some cases the question of whether or not you have committed the offence of which you are accused may not be clear-cut. Get in touch with Lawtons and we can take steps to advise you on how the evidence that police may have against you could influence your plea.

What is the difference between magistrates’ court and Crown Court? 

Any case will be heard in a magistrates’ court initially, and may then be referred up to Crown Court. Some types of offences can only be heard in one type of court or the other, and the Crown Court generally deals with more serious offences.
