The more important and often more serious cases go to the Crown Court. Our service to you here is an extension of what we offer in the Magistrates Court. We are expert advocates, with great experience in questioning the evidence offered by the Prosecution. We can instruct expert evidence in technical defences, and your case will always be dealt with by a skilled and experienced advocate.

Whilst all criminal cases initially begin in the Magistrates Court, the more serious cases are sent or ‘returned’ to the Crown Court. Generally free legal aid is available in the Crown Court given the seriousness of the offences. Stephen Cassidy has, through the years, successfully represented a large number clients charged with serious assaults such as grievous bodily harm(GBH) and Assault occasioning actual bodily harm (AOABH), manslaughter, murder, serious sexual offences including rape, armed robbery, threats to kill, possession and supply of drugs and serious theft and fraud offences.
