We try to make law as simple and easy as possible.

So, if you’ve got a question that isn’t answered below, please contact Collins & Co Defence Lawyers Edinburgh office on 0131 661 3210.

  • Do I really need to be represented?

    A court room is no place for the faint-hearted, or the ill-prepared.  Especially facing a prosecution at the hands of the Procurator Fiscal Service. Our job is to take away the stress so that you feel that you have something on your side to protect your interests and ensure a fair hearing. Whatever the charge you’re facing.

  • Do you also cover cases in the Justice of the Peace Court?

    Yes, we do. We offer representation from the most serious matters in the High Court, to Sheriff and Jury cases, or Sheriff and Justice of the Peace Court cases. Whatever the nature of the offence or the level of the prosecution, you will get the same professional service.

  • What if I can’t get Legal Aid?

    No problem. Collins & Co Defence Lawyers are ready to receive instructions on a private fee basis. Before we do so, we’ll advise on our fee structure, with payment methods to suit your needs. Choose either a fixed fee or a detailed account arrangement.

  • How do I instruct your lawyers?

    It’s simple. Just call our office, email us, or pop into the office in Edinburgh. There’s also an instruction form here.

    If you’ve been detained or arrested, the police will ask you if you wish to have a solicitor informed. That’s the moment to give them the name of Collins & Co Defence Lawyers. You are entitled to a consultation with one of our lawyers before anything else.
