From Our Website

We are a local firm of solicitors based in Medway and Sevenoaks, Kent serving the areas of Chatham, Gillingham, Rochester, Wigmore, Rainham, Strood, Maidstone, Sevenoaks, Canterbury and beyond.

We are led by Jeremy Betts (known as "J") a Solicitor with over 15 years experience in criminal law and, who prior to setting up this firm, ran a large criminal department in his home county of Kent. We pride ourselves on working with you to achieve the best possible outcome for you. We realise that you may lead a busy lifestyle and contacting us during 9 - 5 may not be possible for your lifestyle. Therefore My brief Solicitors offers you longer hours for you to contact us. We are available during the week 8 am until 10 pm and on Saturdays 10 am until 2 pm.

Legal Aid has been subject to many changes in the last two years. Here are some of the rules on who qualifies, and which offences qualify at the different stages of Criminal Proceedings. Legal Aid at the Police Station. Legal advice from a solicitor of your choice is free at the police station. A police officer must telephone your solicitor to tell him or her that you have been arrested, and they can attend at the Government's expense. Legal Aid in the Magistrates Court. In the Magistrates Court, there is a two-stage test for whether a person qualifies for Legal Aid.
