Choosing which criminal defence firm to represent you is one of the most important decisions you will make in relation to your criminal charge or conviction.  There is much at stake.  If you are convicted at trial or if your conviction is upheld on appeal, you could be burdened with a criminal record for the rest of your life, go to jail or prison, lose your job, lose your family, and even be deported.  Meanwhile, the party you are fighting, the Crown prosecutor, possesses all the resources of the state at their disposal.

At Edward H. Royle & Partners LLP, we care about our clients and we do everything we can to help them obtain the best possible results.  We are well equipped to do so.  Our team of criminal defence lawyers, led by Edward H.
