Criminal Law

If you are the subject of a criminal investigation or criminal proceedings, it is vital that you have access to a highly skilled expert criminal defence lawyer as soon as possible. Parker Bird Whiteley has a well respected and long-established team of expert criminal lawyers who regularly appear at local police stations and courts.  Our reputation has been built upon many successful cases and not-guilty verdicts. We will handle your case in a strong, robust, yet sympathetic manner and through our detailed investigations we will help you build a solid defence.  We recognise the importance of dealing with matters which may be crucial to your case from the outset and the importance of communication with clients and their families.

We handle all types of criminal cases – from the most minor of offences right through to serious crime including murder, rape, and sexual offences.  We will prepare your case right through to trial and cover all aspects of the case.

Representation is provided at the following levels:

Police station
Youth Court
Magistrates Court
Crown Court
Court of Appeal

We operate a 24 hour emergency service 365 days a year if you have been arrested and require immediate representation at the police station.  We will provide you with prompt help, expert representation, and confidential advice – completely free of charge.

To access immediate police station representation please call:

Option 1: 01484 423300 (during office hours, Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm)

Option 2: 07703 580929 (during the evening / night and at weekends)

We hold a General Criminal Contract with the Legal Services Commission and will always advise you as to whether you may qualify for public funding.  Representation at the police station is always provided free of charge.  At the Magistrates and Crown Court, legal aid is available for many types of cases but is usually means tested.  If you are not eligible for legal aid, then we offer very competitive rates – usually on a fixed fee basis.

We offer free, confidential initial advice, either over the telephone, by email or in person.  Feel free to contact us to discuss your case without any obligation, or contact us via our on-line enquiry form:
