Crown Court

Crown Court trials are all really about good, thorough and tenacious preparation. We have an experienced team of Courtney, Susan and Dawn who deal exclusively with Crown Court Preparation to ensure the best possible results. They in turn are able to instruct specialist barristers and in-house higher court advocates to conduct the hearings and we have very close relationships with the bar.

It has been said time and time again by barristers that they are keen to take on our work and our clients because they know that the preparation will be complete and that the instructions will be clear and that their advice will be followed to the letter.

We are not the biggest firm in the area but just look at some of our recent cases:

2010 R v W This was a high publicity case known locally as the Blue Lagoon murder. We were approached for advice by 6 of those arrested in this case. At trial in Luton Crown Court we had the only defendant to be acquitted of the charge of murder.

2010 R v O Known nationally as the Matalan murder and covered in detail by the national press and by Crimewatch on television. O was found not guilty of murder after trial.

2009 R v C Defendant charged with murder as a result of an alleged road rage incident. As a result of our involvement the prosecution accepted a plea to manslaughter.

2009 R v D Three defendants charged with the robbery and murder of a young man.

2009 R v Y Defendant charged with murder with one other and found not guilty after trial.

2009 R v L A group of youths and adults were charged with the murder of an elderly gentlemen during an unprovoked attack.

2007 R v K Defendant charged with murder having acted in defence of another. He was found not guilty of murder but of manslaughter after trial.

2006 R v K We believe the first case of familial homicide to go to trial under English law.

2006 R v R This was the well known honour killing in Silsoe. R absconded for a number of years before returning to the UK for the trial.

In addition to those high profile cases we have acted for hundreds of clients at the Crown Court for diverse offences including high value money laundering cases, rape, GBH, robbery, aggravated burglary etc. We give the exact same level of attention to the case whatever the charge and whoever the client.
