Homicide, Serious Violence & Public Order
Members of Chambers appear every day in the criminal courts, at every level defending persons accused of every kind of offence against the person including:
- Kidnapping and False Imprisonment
- Ill-treatment and wilful neglect
- Knife crime
We have a long established reputation for excellence in conducting murder and manslaughter cases. These cases naturally require the highest level of skill and experience as murder carries the ultimate penalty of mandatory life imprisonment. Being able to reduce a murder allegation offers a court the considerable lesser option of a determinate or even non custodial sentence. Recent notable success includes cases involving self defence, diminished responsibility and provocation.
The barristers at 25 Bedford Row will employ their skill and compassion, to maximum effect.
We are adept at instructing and cross-examining experts in every case that engages scientific or medico legal issues.
Their reputation for excellence is demonstrated by involvement in almost every recent major serious trial
