Criminal Defence


Our philosophy is to give reality to the idea that a person is innocent until proven guilty and to assist our clients in understanding the criminal justice system.

We always put the interests and welfare of our clients first. We promise to defend your rights vigorously and pro-actively and will keep you informed every step of the way.

Jason Nicholson solicitor has a dedicated team of lawyers who have been awarded Higher Court Rights which means that we can provide a seamless service from the police station to the Crown court.

Our dynamic yet approachable lawyers have extensive experience in a number of specialist areas and we will work together to build the right team for your case, however big or small.  We conduct work for both privately paying and legally aided clients and will be happy to advise you on the most appropriate method of funding for your case.

In appropriate cases we can agree a reasonable fixed fee to give you certainty and peace of mind. This would be appropriate for single court appearances for cases with predictable outcomes. In recent cases the agreed fee has regularly been as low as £350.00 +
VAT and disbursements (travel & parking).
