People come to us when they are in trouble. They trust us to advise them throughout each stage of investigations and deliver the best result for them. All clients are dealt with sympathetically and with discretion. We understand that this is a very stressful time for you if you are facing a criminal charge, we realise that the result is just one part of the service. You will be treated with respect and understanding. We will go through your case in great detail and ensure every possible angle is covered.

If you are unfortunate enough to face prosecution for a criminal offence, regardless of how serious, you will want to know that your solicitor can give you expert advice during the police investigation and the court process and will represent your best interests in court.

We undertake work in police stations and courts (Magistrates’ and Crown) representing clients facing all types of criminal allegations. Our dedicated team of criminal defence lawyers can advise and represent you at every stage of your case, large or small.

We offer duty solicitor, Legal Aid and privately funded representation.

We are supported by a handpicked team of specialist Barristers. They all share our client care ethos; not only are they first class advocates, but they will handle you with the same level of service you expect from us.

Whatever criminal offence you have been charged with, call Jones & Co. We have offices in Retford, Bawtry and Ollerton and cover police stations and Courts around the country, in particular in Nottinghamshire, South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.

Police station interviews

If you are facing a police interview or a court hearing then call us for free expert advice.

Everyone is entitled to free criminal law advice and representation at the police station, even if you are simply attending as a volunteer.

Talk to one of our specialist lawyers and you will receive a free initial assessment of your case and a way forward so you can get the best result. Getting the right advice as early as possible can help you avoid being convicted of an offence.

You do not need to know our number, just ask for Jones & Co and we will be contacted on your behalf.

Representation at court

If your case progresses from the police station to Court, we will apply for Legal Aid on your behalf and will advise you of any costs you may have to pay. If you are looking to pay privately for representation, we can also provide you with a fixed fee where available or give you an estimate of the likely fees involved. Please feel free to call us for a no obligation quote.
