Representation at court
Aubrey Solicitors represent clients in all criminal courts of England & Wales, including the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.
Magistrates and Youth Court
Criminal matters will initially start at the Magistrates Court or at the Youth Court. Summary only offences will be tried at the Magistrates Court unless you have also been charged with an either way offence. Either way offences can be tried either at the Magistrates’ Court or the Crown Court. Indictable offences, (where the defendant has a right to trial by jury), will always be sent to the Crown Court.
We will represent you at all stages of your case and guide you through the offences, the plea and the venue whilst advising you accordingly on any other aspects of your case. Where legal aid is available this will be means tested for adults.
If the matter proceeds to the Crown Court, our team will liaise with the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service), to obtain disclosure throughout the case so that we can identify any contentious issues from the outset. Our robust approach ensures that your case is prepared thoroughly. We carefully hand pick and instruct specialist Barristers on specific offences, to represent our clients from the preliminary stages to trial, sentence and or appeal to achieve the best possible outcome at every stage of the hearing.
