Being under suspicion of a criminal offence can be a stressful, traumatic and even life-changing event. This is why it is so important to have the best possible criminal defence solicitor representing your interests.

Oratto's member solicitors include specialists who can help defend or mitigate the following kinds of allegations:

  • Drug offences
  • Driving offences
  • Allegations of a sexual nature
  • Assault
  • Fraud
  • Cyber crime
  • Public order offences
  • Theft

Another important factor in your choice of criminal defence defence solicitor is likely to be your fees plan. Of course, every person should receive free criminal law advice and representation at the point of arrest; however, as your case develops it may be necessary to apply for legal aid and to robustly consider any other fees you may have to pay. Sometimes clients may wish to pay privately, whether through a fixed fee or other arrangement.
