Serious & Complex Cases

Stephen Fidler & Co were admitted onto the Legal Services Commission’s Very High Cost Cases Panel soon after the Panel was created.

We have extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with a range of serious and complex cases, ranging from large scale international fraud, through to murders.

We are able to call upon our own in-house solicitor advocates, in order to retain the continuity of cases and a higher level of client contact.

Magistrates Court Cases & Police Station Representation

As a specialist criminal practice, we undertake all criminal work at Magistrates Courts and police stations.


We represent client across the country from small cases, through to large complex matters, but we always retain the understanding that if this is your case, it is no less important than any other we are handling.

We offer a 24 hour service throughout the year, through the emergency contact details available on this site.


Subject to circumstances, we represent client on through both private and public funding.
