General Crime and Police Station Advice

Criminal Investigations

Whether asked to attend the police station voluntarily or if arrested, ask for Howard & Byrne.

Our role at the police station is to ensure you understand what is happening to you and fully appreciate what all your options are. This will allow you to make informed decisions.

We can negotiate with prosecuting authorities on your behalf to avoid a prosecution, or give you advice on how to pro-actively prepare a defence from the outset.

Criminal Proceedings

As specialist criminal defence advocates we will be your voice in court - making sure you are heard.

Whether it is a guilty plea or advice on your defence, everyone benefits from professional representation.

Our specialist team, will examine the case against you. We will provide you with easy to understand advice and prepare your case for court.

We offer both public and privately funded criminal defence services.

Civil Orders

The Police and the National Crime Agency can seek stand alone Civil Orders without bringing criminal charges. These can be very intrusive or prohibitive.

We can advise and represent you in opposing these orders. We can also seek to vary or remove these and other ancilliary orders which can be made on conviction.

These orders include:

Sexual Harm Prevention Orders
Sexual Risk Orders
Domestic Violence Protection Orders
Criminal Behaviour Orders
Serious Crime Prevention Orders
