Criminal Law Solicitors


If you’re facing allegations of criminal conduct, it’s essential to get clear advice to protect your rights. Rely upon our skills to get transparent legal advice from experienced criminal defence lawyers, and protect your legal rights and personal freedom. 

Our criminal law solicitors in Maidstone will always aim to staunchly defend you in the face of investigation and prosecution by the police or other investigatory bodies.

The importance of criminal law representation

As the number of firms offering expertise in this area of the law diminishes, we’re proud of our ability to provide experienced and skilled representation in all criminal proceedings. 

At Gullands, we understand an investigation or prosecution is a stressful time – whether you’ve faced a similar experience before or not. The impact of being involved in a criminal process is a daunting one, affecting your personal and professional life. You want to maximise your chances of achieving the best possible outcome.

That’s exactly what Gullands’ solicitors will aim for, supporting you throughout and mitigating any impact on your life with sensible and strategic advice.

What criminal law services do Gullands offer?
With round-the-clock availability, Gullands can provide advice and representation in all criminal courts and local police stations, 24 hours a day.

No matter how bad the situation first appears, we will probe and challenge the prosecution case and fully investigate all matters important to your defence. Our experts will always prepare your case thoroughly, providing high quality support. Where needed, we’ll also arrange for representation by an experienced and skilled barrister.

We can advise on any case from a minor road traffic offence through to a complex fraud. Other cases include:

• Murder and manslaughter

• Assault

• Theft and fraud

• Drugs offences

• Criminal damage

• Sex offences

Our commitment to you 

At Gullands, our preparation and tenacity sets us apart, as we’ll always offer practical criminal law advice and work hard towards a common goal. 

As part of our commitment to criminal law, we’re members of the Duty Solicitors' scheme which means that whenever you’re in trouble – even in the middle of the night – we can be there quickly to represent you.

When it comes to finances, most of our work is state funded. We’ll always apply for a Legal Representation Order (formerly Legal Aid) on your behalf where appropriate.
