Some cases end up at the Crown court for example serious matters that can only be dealt with at the Crown court ,or matters where either the defendant has elected Crown court trial with judge and jury or the Magistrates feel they are unable to deal with the case. Kidd and Spoor will also arrange representation at Crown court by a barrister although under some circumstances a member of the team will have the right to represent defendants at the Crown court for appeals and bail applications. Cases are fully prepared by the team here at Kidd & Spoor and you will be kept fully informed about the status of your case whether you are on bail or in custody.
Depending on your financial circumstances legal aid may be available for Crown court matters and as we have a contract with the Legal Aid Agency this will always be discussed at the start of your case. Fixed fees are available for people who do not qualify for legal aid.
