How We Can Help

Our specialists can advise you at all stages of criminal investigation and proceedings.  We can make a valuable intervention before arrest, at the police station and during court proceedings at the magistrates, crown or higher courts.

Over the years we have successfully acted in a huge range of cases from serious and high-profile fraud and homicide maters through to motoring offences.  Our team recognise that whatever the nature or profile of the allegation, it will be of great significance to our clients and in that respect, we approach all cases in the same way and with the same levels of dedication.

How We Work

The criminal defence team at TV Edwards are committed to achieving the best possible outcomes for its clients. This means fearlessly protecting our clients’ interests, putting forward the best possible case, challenging evidence and diligently and forensically preparing cases.

The team achieves this with compassion, discretion and understanding, supporting clients through what can often be very distressing circumstances.  

We are known for being pragmatic problem solvers who are down to earth, hardworking and tenacious.

The team is made up of accredited police station advisors, solicitors and higher court advocates – all well equipped to present your case to the highest standards.

We collaborate with handpicked barristers and expert witnesses to ensure that your legal team is as strong as it can be. We are accessible 24 hours a day through our emergency telephone line, and we are available to represent you if required at evenings and weekends.
