The criminal department at McKeag & Co is a very long established department and was formerly headed by Donald Clive McKeag who has undertaken serious criminal matters in excess of 50 years.

Although Mr McKeag continues to work for us as a Consultant, Judith Curry now primarily deals with all criminal matters covering the very minor road traffic offences and other petty offences such as theft and criminal damage which are usually dealt with by the Magistrates’ Court to the most serious offences such as murder, assault and arson which will be dealt with at the Crown Court.

We have an excellent reputation for providing high quality legal representation to our clients and once instructed we obtain your instructions and provide guidance to you. Our solicitors have a wealth of experience and attend court on a daily basis to represent clients.

Criminal matters usually commence with an arrest by the police and you will be taken to a police station. We will provide representation to you at the police station and be present when you are dealt with by the police, usually in interview. This service is available to clients 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. We also guarantee clients, when contacting our emergency service, will speak to the solicitor who will ultimately represent their interests should proceedings be commenced at Court.

If you require the services of a solicitor in connection with a criminal matter please do not hesitate to contact us on our office or emergency number.
