The team at Hudson Marshall have wide-ranging experience dealing with a vast array of criminal offences and civil matters, some of which are listed below.
In criminal matters, we may be able to provide free legal advice through our Legal Aid contract. You are also always eligible for free representation for an interview under caution with the police, even for voluntary attendances.
We specialise in providing pre-charge advice and are adept at stopping cases before they reach the point of charge. We have made successful written submissions to investigating and prosecuting authorities to ensure prosecutions are either not brought in the first place, or if they are, that the prosecution is withdrawn before it reaches trial. We put everything into our cases - quite simply, our early involvement can make the difference between you being charged with an offence... or not.
We are a professional, yet accessible practice, serving clients from all walks of life. We have represented eminent doctors, lawyers, bankers, teachers and actors. We also regularly represent the most vulnerable in society, including children, the homeless, and those suffering from mental health issues.
If you are convicted of drink-driving, or receive 12 or more penalty points within 3 years, it is ordinarily expected that you will receive a mandatory driving disqualification. However, a disqualification can still be avoided. There are limited circumstances, in which legal arguments can be made to persuade the court to allow you to keep your licence, notwithstanding your admission of the offence(s).
A ‘special reasons’ argument can be put forward where you may otherwise lose your driving licence. ‘Special reasons’ can apply to any motoring offence where you are at risk of losing your driving licence, or having your driving licence endorsed with penalty points. We can fight for you to keep your licence in ‘totting’ cases, on the basis that the loss of your licence would cause ‘Exceptional Hardship’.
You should contact us as soon as you are made aware that you will be charged with any motoring offence, so that all options can be fully explored, before your court date.
We advise on a wide range of litigation and dispute matters. Often, our early involvement can save both the time and costs of lengthy court proceedings. We will do our utmost to try to resolve the matter through alternative dispute resolution (negotiation, arbitration or mediation). These cases are often the most stressful for all parties involved. We work with some of the leading Barristers in their respective fields. You can be sure that, if the only way to obtain justice, is to have a trial at court, we will provide you with first class representation, to give you the best possible chance of success.
Funding your case
The prospect of facing criminal or civil legal proceedings is daunting, without the worry of whether or not you will be able to afford quality legal representation. Here at Hudson Marshall, we will guide you through all funding options, in order to determine the arrangement that suits you best.
We offer an excellent service for privately funded clients. Our private fees are determined on a fair, flexible, and cost-effective basis. Having built up excellent working relationships with a number of experienced barristers, including Queen’s Counsel, we tailor our choice of advocate to fit the specific circumstances of your case.
In addition to our private client service, Hudson Marshall also offers free representation in criminal defence matters through legal aid. To qualify for legal aid, you must meet certain eligibility requirements. Whether or not you are granted free legal representation will depend on your income, and the seriousness of the offence you are charged with.
If you are eligible for free legal representation, we will ensure you have your application properly completed and processed in a timely manner.
- “It was to my great advantage that my police station matter was attended by Hudson Marshall Solicitors. They advised me in detail before I spoke with the police. At all times, Mr Singh’s manner was open, honest, professional and highly competent. I was advised properly, and kept informed about everything. I am deeply impressed with the alacrity and diligence with which my case was handled by Hudson Marshall. I was even spoken to, at length after the interview, covering all the possible eventualities in my case.”
- “I was helped and supported from the beginning until the end of my case. Hudson Marshall Solicitors supported me and went above and beyond the expectations that I have of a legal representative. I will only use them in the future for any legal matters, as I will then be sure that I will be represented by the best in the business.”
- “At the darkest point in my life, Jay was the light. My first brush with the criminal justice system was a horrible false accusation. Jay was easy to talk to, cut through the legal jargon and explained simply what was going on. His calm confidence in the facts and support, prepared me for the court case and the successful not guilty verdict.”
