Serious Crime

Sonn Macmillan Walker has very substantial experience in defending the full range of serious and complex criminal cases. We have a dedicated team of solicitors who specialise in Crown Court work and we conduct cases across the country. We have a team of dedicated advocates who can represent you in court and we instruct some of the best criminal defence barristers in the land.

We are a member of the Legal Services Commission panel authorised to undertake very high cost casesĀ. These are cases where the trial is predicted to last longer than 8 weeks. Whilst many firms claim to possess experience in conducting such cases, few actually have that experience.

Serious cases are given priority by the prosecuting agencies and defendants should therefore engage solicitors who specialise in dealing with such cases. You will see from our Cases section that we have experience dealing with all types of serious allegation, including massively complex cases involving tens or hundreds of thousands of pages of evidence and cases that involve hugely serious allegations.

We have specialised in defending grave and complex crime since the firm's inception and we have solicitors and advocates able to provide the highest quality representation for all matters including the following offences:

  • Terrorism
  • Murder
  • Manslaughter
  • Importation and supply of drugs
  • Kidnap
  • Blackmail
  • Arson
  • False imprisonment
  • Possession and use of firearms
  • Serious sexual assault     
  • Death by careless driving
