Huw James Solicitors
Criminal Law
Criminal cases will generally be dealt with by a solicitor local to you. As a firm holding a Legal Aid Criminal Contract, we handle many criminal cases and offer police station attendances as well as representation at court.

All criminal cases begin life in the Magistrates Court. You can appear in the Magistrates Court by way of "Summons" or "Charge".

A Summons is a written demand stating that you are required to attend Court in order to answer the allegations made against you. A Summons is usually issued by the Police but sometimes it is issued by the Local Authority or other Authority, such as the RSPCA. If you are summoned, you are therefore being requested to attend Court to deal with the matter laid before the Court.
