Shelley & Co

Meet the Team

Mark Shelley set up the firm 20 years ago and remains very much at the heart of the firm. The Shelley & Co team is made up of eight experienced and talented lawyers who between them undertake police station, magistrates’ court and crown court work.

Mark started in general practice with a wide range of work. In 1996 Mark started his own firm specialising only in crime. Since then the Firm has grown to 8 solicitors all practising only in criminal work. Mark is also a partner in Potter Shelley and Co Huntingdon, which practises solely in criminal law.
