BSB Solicitors – Because Everyone Matters
Under Investigation and Need Urgent Help?
Facing a criminal investigation is a stressful experience. Taking specialist advice legal is essential to protect your rights.
“Working alongside some of the leading barristers and forensic experts we have a notable track record of successful outcomes and acquittals.”
Our award-winning criminal defence solicitors are experts in dealing with a range of criminal, fraud and regulatory investigations across a wide spectrum.
Cases we have featured in are regularly in the public eye.
Clients we have acted for include public figures, professionals and government officials.
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.
