Frequently Asked Questions

We can help every step of the way.

We understand that attending Court can be a nerve-wracking experience but you must attend as and when required otherwise a Warrant for your arrest could be granted.

We advise that you dress smartly and ensure you arrive 15 minutes early so that we can discuss your case in depth before Court starts.

Don’t panic – we are by your side to guide you through the process.

You will normally be required to attend Court at least twice so let us know if/ when you are not available so we can advise the Court. Please note that we are not in control of when a case calls in Court but will do everything we can, to cause minimum disruption to your daily life.

Appeals can be made against conviction or sentence, or both, providing there is a legal basis for this. They need to be lodged urgently – so if you require advice regarding an appeal, contact us immediately.

If you are unhappy with restrictive bail conditions, we can arrange for a bail review hearing where we shall put forward a strong and convincing argument to persuade the Sheriff to change your bail conditions to better suit you. If you need your bail conditions changed, contact us immediately.

When in jail, you need to know when you are going to be released. Parole opportunities can be few and far between, so it is important that when this opportunity arises, you get specialist legal representation.

Our team of specialist Criminal Solicitors are here to prepare a robust case and present a convincing argument to ensure that you have the best possible chance of success and qualify for release.

In solemn procedure, the court can sentence an accused to a period of up to five years in prison or impose a fine of any amount. In the summary procedure, the court can sentence an accused to a maximum period of twelve months and the maximum fine is £10,000.

The majority of cases heard in the Scottish Courts are classified as summary.
These cases include assault, theft, possession of drugs, breach of the peace and driving offences. Although not as serious as solemn crimes, they can still result in very serious outcomes including a lengthy prison sentence of up to 12 months.

Whatever the charges or allegations you’re facing, we can help
