Criminal Proceedings

Having to attend Court can be very stressful.  As we have years of experience dealing with all aspects of criminal law, we can relieve you of some of the pressure.  We pride ourselves on giving honest, quality advice and offering support throughout the Court process.

Magistrates Court

We deal with the whole range of offences that can be dealt with at the Magistrates Court.  We are based in Barnsley but cover other Courts across the country as well.  We deal with bail applications, trials, guilty pleas and sentencing.  Our team of dedicated solicitors work with you to obtain the best possible result.

Crown Court

More serious cases are dealt with at the Crown Court.  Casrs can also go to the Crown Court by way of an appeal against a decision of the Magistrates Court.  Our experienced team will advise you throughout and help you prepare your case to try and ensure a successful outcome.

Youth Court

At Howard & Co, we believe that cases in the Youth Court are very important because a criminal conviction can affect a young person’s whole life.  The powers of the Youth Court and sentences that can be imposed by the Youth Court are different to other Courts.  We specialise in all aspects of Youth Court work.

Costs

Many criminal matters will be covered by legal aid.  In cases that are not covered, we are prepared to deal with cases on a fixed fee basis.
