At Fonseca & Partners our team of criminal defence solicitors is available 24 hours a day to advise and represent you whether in the police station or in the Magistrates or Crown Court. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with all types of offences whether you are being prosecuted by the Crown Prosecution Service or by the DWP.
Our team is accredited by the Law Society and we can deal with your matter on a legal aid basis should you qualify for it. Our two specialised criminal solicitors Mr Alan Bolter and Mr Roy Hammond are both highly qualified duty solicitors with thirty years experience between them.
We have recently successfully defended clients in high profile cases. For example we acted for a defendant on a murder charge, for a senior executive in a health and safety investigation, and in another instance in a corporate manslaughter case. We are also very experienced in dealing with fraud charges.
We have particular experience of dealing with large scale drug conspiracies throughout the South Wales and Bristol area. In recent years we have dealt with a number of such cases including cases where the value of drugs seized by the police has been in excess of £1 million.
Our solicitors also have experience of dealing with serious sexual and violent crimes including:
- Inter-familiar allegations of rape and sexual abuse;
- Allegations of sexual abuse within educational and local authority settings;
- Allegations of sexual abuse within a complex for vulnerable adults;
- Allegations of violence towards the residents of care homes;
- Serious public order incidents within the community and also prisons where defendants were represented following a mutiny.
Additionally we have experience in advising clients regarding the recent changes in criminal law and in particular the changes brought about by the Criminal Justice Act 2003. We are able to provide advice and advocacy assistance in respect of applications brought by the Local Authority and Police for Anti Social Behaviour Orders (ASBO) and orders under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 as these orders are often restrictive and can be imposed even if you have never been convicted of a criminal offence.
We shall ensure that you are dealt with fairly and in accordance with the law within the Criminal Justice System and we shall always act in your best interests. We are always available to provide you with advice by telephone day or night.
