Criminal Defence


We are available 24/7 to provide advice and help if you are arrested and questioned by the police. It is important that you are properly looked after at this early stage. If during out of office hours tell the police you want to speak to Woollcombe Yonge Solicitors and they HAVE to contact us and we will speak with you or attend upon you if you are in custody – this service is available 24/7.

If you then have to appear at the Magistrates Court or at a Courts Martial we have experienced advocates who will prepare your case and represent you. Our team will advise you on the best way forward, for example whether you should plead guilty or not guilty, and they will make sure that all relevant evidence is collected and presented at Court so that you are defended properly.

Sometimes cases have to be transferred to the Crown Court and we have a experienced team dealing with the preparation of these cases. Their work includes meeting you as often as is necessary (including in prison if required), collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses, appointing expert witnesses and making sure that you have the best legal representation during your trial whether that be by a barrister or by one of our higher criminal courts advocates.

We are one of the largest providers of criminal defence services in Devon and Cornwall. We are holders of the Specialist Quality Mark awarded by the Legal Services Commission and we hold a contract from the Criminal Defence Service. We are specialists in all aspects of criminal defence ranging from murder, drugs importation, fraud and other commercial crime to assaults, motoring offences and general crime.

We are committed to defending you and protecting your rights.
