Criminal Law Costs

Accessing advocates in both the Crown Court and the Magistrates is more cost-effective than you might have imagined.

Typically Counsel will charge at a base rate of between £100-£150 per hour dependent on the complexity of your case.

A half day trial in the Magistrates Court might cost you as little as £350 +VAT. For a guilty plea you may well be charged £250 +VAT to have a highly experienced Barrister present the facts of your case, and all mitigating factors to the Court.

You can meet your Barrister in advance to discuss your case and all of the options that are open to you. No fees will be incurred without you agreeing to the costs in advance.
