Richard Haswell Solicitors have experience of dealing with all aspects of defence advocacy. We have a firm grasp on the powers of the police, your rights as a criminal suspect and the processes and procedures which you can expect.
From initial police contact and arrest through to the courtroom, representing your interests and putting forward your defence, we will give you advice at every stage.
As well as the cold facts of the case and the legal procedures which are inevitable, we also pride ourselves on the personal understanding we have of our clients.
By developing a professional and personal relationship with those we defend, we believe that the best chance of a successful defence case is created. We understand the person as well as the case.
Whilst many of our clients need immediate contact or can visit our legal practice in Newcastle, we appreciate that this is not always the best option.
Should you have difficulty travelling, or would prefer to discuss your case away from the stressful surroundings of a police station, we can arrange to meet you in your home. Given the cases we handle, we understand that some of our clients will prefer this option to the alternatives.
Whether you need help and advice for criminal damage, theft or drug possession, we will be there to support you.
