Criminal Law

In our adversarial system, the defence lawyer must actively pursue the interests of the suspect or defendant. At every stage of criminal process, from the police station where many cases are won or lost, through to the Magistrates’ Court, Crown Court, and Court of Appeal, we strive to maintain our reputation for actively pursuing the interests and rights of our clients.

Our experienced solicitor advocates ensure that proper attention and preparation is given to every case no matter how ‘big’ or ‘small’. We look at every case afresh and test whether the arrest or prosecution is lawful; whether there are alternatives to prosecution; and ensure that every possible defence is fully explored.

We are the only firm to have an extensive criminal practice throughout the whole island of Ireland. We also have experience representing clients internationally in major cases in Europe and South America.

We are continually ranked Number 1 in the Chambers Guide to the legal profession and are described as being, “deeply respected for its work within all matters associated with crime.”

We take a holistic approach to defending clients and ensure that any associated legal interests are actively pursued, such as prison issues, family law, actions against the police, or social security issues.
