THERE ARE FEW EXPERIENCES MORE NERVE-RACKING THAN BEING SUMMONED TO COURT OR THE POLICE STATION TO ANSWER CRIMINAL CHARGES.
There can be few experiences more nerve-wrecking then being summoned to court or the police station to answer criminal charges. It is essential that you are advised well and advised early. You need to know what to expect in criminal proceedings, what you should say, what your charge entails and the sentence that you are facing in case of conviction.
The lawyers at Silvester Legal LLC will work on legal representations to the Attorney General’s Chambers to reduce the charge against you. We will also address the sentence that the prosecution is seeking. There are cases where it would be advisable to plead guilty and mitigate your sentence. This would allow you to deal with the matter quickly and get on with your life.
However, if you want to fight the charge and do not intend to plead guilty, our experienced criminal lawyers have fought criminal trials and will fight in your corner to achieve the best outcome possible for you.
Our lawyers have experience in defending white collar crimes, sexual offences, causing hurt offences, criminal force, theft charges, gambling offences, computer misuse act offences and traffic offences, among others.
We will be with you every step of the way, advising, encouraging and protecting you.

BG, Criminal Defence Client
“When I was charged with a crime, I approached Walter. The Prosecution told me that they would be seeking a total of 5 weeks jail if I pleaded guilty and more, if I choose to go for trial. Walter wrote representations. Even when he was first rejected, he never gave up hope. He advised that we proceed to trial as he felt that what I was accused of did not warrant 5 weeks in jail. 2 weeks before the 4-day trial was about to commence. [Read More]“
P Krishnan, Criminal Defence Client
“The charges included a likely custodial sentence. Walter vowed to do his level best to remove any possibility of me going to jail. Over the course of the next 9 months, Walter spoke with the prosecution, wrote to them and reviewed the evidence at the investigating officer’s office. Once this was done, he wrote representations to the AGC. When the Judge expressed reservations, Walter dealt with this. Finally, it was only when I was assured that no custodial sentence would be imposed, did Walter agree to have me plead. [Read More]“
