Criminal Law

TaylorGoodchild Solicitors have over 40 years’ experience in representing individuals throughout the criminal justice system. From initial suspicion and interview at the police station either under arrest or by voluntary interview, through to representation at the Magistrates Court, Crown Court and the Court of Appeal, we can expertly advise and assist you seamlessly.

We understand and appreciate the potential impact this process may have upon you personally and professionally and will support and assist you throughout, acknowledging that you may have never faced a criminal investigation or prosecution previously. Rest assured that we will do all that we can to mitigate any impact that such matters may have upon you, or on your employment.

Primarily we are a company committed to offering our professional services via public funding, i.e. legal aid, subject to the merits of your case and your financial means. Your eligibility for legal aid will be established initially before alternative payment regimes will be considered.

We are also able to represent you under private terms of instruction which will need to be agreed between ourselves before any meaningful work is carried out. Such private costs can be made subject to a flexible and affordable repayment plan, dependent upon the circumstances of your case.

Free initial 30 minute appointments are available, upon request.

I use TaylorGoodchild because I know who I’m going to get to represent me. They are a close knit team and all on the same wavelength.

Dan helped me in my first ever run in with court. I was so scared about what was going to happen but he made sure everything was explained. It was a fantastic result and I really felt he got across everything I wanted to say
