The Key Stages of our Services to you

The following key stages of our service to you are based on the presumption that you are entering a guilty plea and have a date for your hearing:

  • We will arrange a meeting with you at our Altrincham office to take your instructions about what happened. This is usually (and preferably) face-to-face
  • Where relevant we will endeavour to obtain and consider initial disclosure and any other evidence, obtain your instructions and advise you
  • We will explain the court procedure to you so you know what to expect on the day of your hearing, and the sentencing options available to the court.
  • We will attend and meet you at court on the day of the hearing and present your case to the Court
  • Due to the uncertainty of court listing, we cannot say for certain how long your case will take to be dealt with but would expect it to take no longer than half a day
  • Following the hearing, we will discuss the outcome with you and will lodge an appeal with the Court if required
