Court Hearings

Court Hearings

Shelley & Co appear in the Magistrates’ Court and Crown Court on a daily basis and provide our clients with the highest level of representation. Our solicitors have an excellent reputation for providing outstanding service and a proven track record of success.

We have successfully defended clients who have been accused of murder, manslaughter, sexual offences, drug offences, theft, fraud, harassment, firearms offences, forgery and many more. If it is a criminal offence then it is likely we will have experience of it.


In addition, we have expertise in representing clients prosecuted by the Environment Agency, the Department of Work and Pensions, and the Health and Safety Executive.

Our team has experience of a wide range of traffic offences and understand the prospect of losing your driving licence can be a worrying time with life changing consequences.


Client care is at the forefront of Shelley & Co’s practice and our excellent reputation is very important to us. Facing criminal proceedings can be a frightening and daunting experience and we aim to provide all clients with honest advice in simple straightforward language.


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.
