No matter the allegation, every client we act for receives the same standard of professional service, care and attention.

Being Charged With a Crime

People often contact us and tell us that they have been “charged with x or Y”. Often they haven’t been charged but they have been questioned by police.

Some investigations are concluded the day that they are questioned by police, but often they continue for several weeks or even months before decisions are made to charge a suspect.

Whether you have been charged or requisitioned, you will receive a sheet setting out the offences for which you have been charged. Some offences are summary only, which meant that they can only be tried in the Magistrates’ court, the police have a six-month limit within which to bring these cases to court. Other offences which can be tried in both the Magistrates Court or Crown Court are not subject to the same time limits.

  • BSB represented me for what I consider to be the most difficult 9 months of my life. There understanding, support and most crucially legal expertise was of enormous comfort to me. I knew the immense hard work they were putting in would mean my representation was the best available. I would recommend BSB to anyone needing legal representation.
