Private Crime

Please note that we are not able to offer a legal aid service for our Private Crime service.

Larcomes Private Criminal Defence department has vast experience and knowledge when it comes to Criminal Law. Lucy Linington who heads the department became a Court and Police station duty solicitor in 2010 and over the years, has dealt with a wide range of cases. She has represented clients at Police stations and Magistrates Courts for motoring offences including the most serious such as death by dangerous, death by careless, other cases involving murder, assaults, money laundering, football banning orders, DWP fraud, high value drugs supply, serious sexual offences, and all manner of criminal cases for Crown Court trials. Lucy is able to provide representation for all police stations and Magistrates Court hearings. We have a close association with a local set of Chambers who provide top class barristers to assist in defending all types of cases.

We have successfully defended clients investigated and prosecuted by authorities such as The Crown Prosecution Service, The Department for Work and Pensions, The Department for Business Innovation and Skills and Trading Standards.

Our Private Criminal Defence Department is designed to primarily help business owners and business professionals and we place great emphasis on our client care and ensuring that we prepare thoroughly for every case. When instructed, we will guarantee that you will always be able to speak with your appointed solicitor during the entire case from start to finish.

Our promise is to work alongside you in attempting to achieve the best outcome for you and we will endeavour to help reduce any stress or anxiety that you experience during very challenging times.

“I was encouraged and relived to meet such an energetic, forthright, positive person, speaking with understanding and authority. Lucy took on the case, simplified and resolved the situation with amazing speed.” 

“Thank you for all your help at my recent court hearing. You were absolutely superb and without you my sentence would have been more severe. I shall certainly recommend you and your company to all my friends and acquaintances.”
