The Police Station

If you are arrested and detained at a police station or attend for interview as a volunteer, you are entitled to consult a solicitor free of charge. We strongly advise that you do seek legal advice.
What is said and done at the police station can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. Often we find that, when clients have been unrepresented at the police station they are at a disadvantage if their case goes to court because of what was said, or was not said, when interviewed by police.


The Magistrates’ Court

All cases begin in the magistrates’ court and most of them conclude there.
Our experienced solicitors attend magistrates’ courts throughout England and Wales on a regular basis and are able to provide effective representation in order to achieve the best possible result for you.

We will obtain details of the case against you, listen to your instructions and then advise you of the nature and strength of the evidence against you and the possible outcomes.


The Crown Court

Wheldon Law are regularly instructed to act in the most serious and complex of cases and we are experienced in dealing with a wide range of offences from murder and serious assaults to sexual offences, burglaries, theft and fraud.
From the outset you will have access to a qualified solicitor who will be responsible for your case throughout. They will listen to your instructions, advise you on the law and any defences available to you and explain the court procedure and possible outcomes to you.


The Youth Court

If you are under the age of 18 then your case will start in the youth court. Although very serious offences are sent to the crown court the vast majority of offences will start and finish in the youth court.
We understand that having to appear in court can be a stressful experience for both the young person and their family and we pride ourselves on combining the highest standards of representation with a friendly approachable manner.



We are able to advise and assist with appeals to the Crown Court or the higher courts and have a great deal of experience in challenging cases in the Crown Court, the Court of Appeal, the High Court and the Criminal Cases Review Commission.
