You have the right to appeal against any conviction. Mistakes can be made and manifestly excessive sentences are sometimes imposed.

If you want to appeal against your conviction or sentence we will investigate the matter for you. Appeals can be complex and we advise you that a notice of appeal must normally be lodged within a specified time period which begins from when you were sentenced. It is imperative therefore that we get your case papers as soon as possible.

We do advise you however that if your appeal is unsuccessful the Court could impose a more severe sentence than the one you originally received.

If you believe that you have been wrongly found guilty of an offence or feel that your sentence was manifestly excessive call us on 01223 632420 and let’s see how we can help.

What you say to a police officer can have serious implications for you. Even if you do not instruct Libra Solicitors to advise you we would strongly urge you to take legal advice before you speak to the police.

You can be charged with an offence solely on what you say to a police officer, even if there is no other evidence against you.

Taking legal advice does not make you look guilty: it is your right. At Libra Solicitors we take protecting your rights and interests seriously and our services are tailored to your individual needs so you can be sure your case receives the attention it deserves.

How we can help you

We will:-

  • always put your interests first and protect your legal rights whilst your matter is being dealt with by the police
  • provide you with expert advice in respect of the allegation
  • make representations in support of bail if bail is being denied
  • be available to attend the police station with you 24hrs a day

Whenever possible we suggest that you should take legal advice before you attend the police station.

So if you or somebody you know has a matter that is being investigated by the police, or if you or somebody you know has been ‘invited’ to the police station to speak to a police officer, call us now on 01223 632420 and let’s see how we can help you. You will always have our fullest attention.
