Do I need a Scottish lawyer or an English lawyer

Scottish criminal law is different. We are based in Glasgow and have satellite offices in Ayr, Kilmarnock and Auchinleck.

There are some circumstances where we can assist:

  1. You are English (*) and you got into trouble whilst in Scotland. A few months later you receive a court summons (previously known as a “Citation”) at your English address to appear in a Scottish Court
  2. You are English (*) and have been implicated in a Scottish case, e.g. a fraud case where the case has a cross-jurisdictional element and is to be heard in a Scottish court.
  3. You are a Scot who now lives in England has a court case to attend in Scotland, or the police are wanting to interview them about a crime they committed whilst they lived in Scotland years before.

The offence was committed in England

You probably need an English(*) Solicitor except for (b) above.
