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authorities to ensure prosecutions are either not brought in the first place, or if they are, that the prosecution is withdrawn before it reaches trial.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.
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.
A criminal record can have lifelong ramifications. Don’t take a chance with an inexperienced Lawyer. We will fight to get your life back as we have done with countless others before you.

I want to say a massive thank you to the team at Hudson Marshall for the support I received during a really dark period for me and my family, after a false allegation was made against me.
