Criminal Defence

Our Criminal Law section is headed by Mary Kyriacou.

Being arrested, and if later charged with an offence, is understandably a most daunting experience, and for that reason it is essential to have the services of a skilled and experienced solicitor to advise you.

We are known as one of the leading Criminal Defence Solicitors advising on a private instructed basis, with excellent results for our clients.

This is because criminal litigation requires pragmatism, attention to minute detail and consideration of all issues coupled with a professional dedication to the clients defence. We only provide representation on a private fee paying basis in order to provide you with that extra assurance that your case is important and will be afforded the time and professionalism it justly deserves.
