Criminal prosecutions can be alarming when you are unfamiliar with the legal system and the current law affecting you. Perhaps most distressing when being charged with a criminal offence is the feeling that no one is listening to your side of the story. At Tranters we ensure that your side of the story is heard, whether it be by fighting your innocence or explaining how you made a mistake. We are proud to represent the rights of the individual against the police and other prosecuting authorities.

Tranters specialises in the criminal law that affects you, dealing with offences of all levels from simple shop thefts and motoring offences to serious fraud investigations and murder. We represent people at all stages of criminal proceedings – from the initial consultation at the police station, throughout proceedings at the magistrates’ and crown court and, if necessary, at appeal.

We undertake legal aid (publicaly funded) and private client work, providing reasonable and competitive private rates that we are happy to discuss.
