Expert criminal defence solicitors
Levins Solicitors has been a major criminal practice for 30 years. We have a committed and experienced team of criminal law solicitors to help you no matter how big or small the problem.
Our specialist criminal defence team defends clients all over England and Wales. We are based in the North West of England but regularly travel to police station and courts nationwide to meet the needs of our clients.
At the start of Covid-19, Skype video interviews were introduced in many police stations. This means that the client can attend in person, and we can advise via video conference. As we no longer need to travel this means that we can provide expert advice throughout England and Wales. In some circumstances we will still attend the police station in person. This can be discussed at the outset of the case.
Being a defence solicitor means providing around the clock expert advice. We have been involved in many high profile cases and pride ourselves on assisting clients to navigate the criminal justice system. We hold a legal aid contract which means if legal aid is available and you are eligible we can represent you. We also deal with many cases where the client is ineligible for legal aid. This means charging on a private basis. Our private fees are always clear and transparent – no hidden extras.
We deal with all aspects of criminal defence services. Cases often start with a criminal investigation at the police station. Our team will attend the police station with you free of charge whether you are arrested or face a voluntary interview. We will assist you on the most minor magistrates’ court matters right up to the most serious crown court matters. Our team of lawyers is headed by David Woods who is a duty solicitor and higher court advocate with over 30 years experience of criminal practice. Dave has dealt with many serious cases and is highly respected by clients and barristers in Merseyside and beyond.
We specialise in serious cases, including offences of murder, armed robbery and sexual offences. We also deal regularly with serious drugs cases and money laundering. Don’t just take our word for it. Read case studies on major drugs case, sexual assault, and success at the court of appeal
Our reputation in this area is built on working hard for our clients and ensuring that they receive the best quality legal service. Most of our work is client referral and returning clients. This is because we care and will go the extra mile. Our team led by David Woods has years of experience and are ready to help.
