Criminal Defence

An accusation of any crime can be a frightening and intimidating experience. Without the help of experienced lawyers, these accusations can lead to devastating consequences. At Powell Spencer and Partners we are Dedicated to Justice and here for you.

Our lawyers work closely with each of our clients to guide them through the legal system, pursuing every available opportunity to have the charges reduced or dropped completely. We often succeed in obtaining ‘not guilty verdicts’.

We deal with major crime, murders, terrorism, conspiracies to import drugs, drugs supply, armed robbery, rape, missing trader fraud and the more unusual or arcane. Odd cases have recently included the selling of ivory to an FBI undercover agent, issues relating to antique firearms, newspaper sting operations and the allegation that our client had obtained a school place for her child by deception and whether a school place could amount to intangible property within the Fraud Act.

We also deal with highly specialised areas of criminal law, acting for air crew in allegations of excess alcohol and in major disaster work for rail and fire brigade union members.

Of course there are many cases that are referred to as ordinary crime including cases of assault, violent disorder, shoplifting, car theft, burglary and drugs possession and robbery.

We allocate each case to an individual in the Crime Team and that person will look after you throughout the criminal justice process. We take pride and care and have a vastly experienced team.
