Why Lawtons?

Lawtons Criminal Solicitors was set up in September 2004 with one aim; to provide outstanding advice to those accused of criminal offences. Our aim remains exactly the same today.

Criminal Specialists

Our lawyers only work in the areas of law that they know best. We’re specialists in criminal law and we don’t try to spread ourselves across lots of other fields.

Recognised Experts

You can feel safe in the knowledge that we’ve been independently recognised as a leading criminal law firm by both The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners.

Wealth of Experience

We have specialist teams of solicitors who are able to deal with the full range of criminal offences. "According to clients, Lawtons Solicitors 'has no limits in terms of the gravity of cases it can manage'" - 2017 Legal 500.
