Products & Services

Criminal Defence

We appreciate that an arrest or prosecution can be very unsettling, and as such provide clear and decisive advice, ensuring continuity of representation throughout the lifetime of your case along with a personal service and friendly approach.

We are experts at defending you whatever the charge, from an admitted shop-theft through to a denied murder or complex fraud.


Crown Court Litigation

It is simply not sufficient to have a conference with a solicitor and then turn up at court for a trial. Court cases require thorough preparation.
This preparation needs to be undertaken and completed well before any trial date. Such preparation entails ensuring that all the relevant information in the case has been considered and evaluated. Defendants are now required to file Defence Statements and give advance notification of the name and address details of defence witnesses to be called by the defence.


Road Traffic Law

The law and procedure for motoring offences is complex. The police and prosecutors don't always get it right. Our solicitors have the expert knowledge and experience to help you through all aspects of the investigation and court case. Our motoring solicitors will give you the best advice and representation at all stages of the process. We will always look for the obvious, and not so obvious, defences to avoid a conviction.


Education Law

We can provide free initial advice over the telephone or by email, by one our education law solicitors, to assist you in identifying the options available to you to obtain the resolution that you seek.

If you would like in depth advice thereafter, with one of our education law specialists, tailored to your case, tailored to your case, we offer fixed fee appointments, in person at one of our six offices across the East Midlands or by telephone or Skype if you live further afield.


Business Defence

Our business law solicitors can advise you in cases involving allegations of business fraud. Should an individual, professional or director be interviewed in accordance with PACE (Police & Criminal Evidence Act) one of our business defence law team can be with you to give advice throughout the interview and investigation process. These prosecutions are usually led by the police, CPS, H M Revenue & Customs or the Department of Business Innovations & Skills.

Can’t thank shannon enough for the work she has done. She was very good, she listened, she checked the so called evidence, she instructed well on how she thought things would happen and what to expect. She knows her stuff. She went on to win this case and finally we can get back to normal.
Cannot recommend her highly enough. Certainly would use her again if we was in a position to need legal help again.

My solicitor was David gittins he was helpful and gave sensible advice to the offence I had done. He was always on time and presented himself well... on the day of my court hearing it happened that he wasn't able to deal with my case due to being in trial he was calm and relaxed and explained in full and passed it onto his colleague dennie... and he was also very efficient and explained things simply and he was very well spoken in court... cannot thank them both enough and to also add VHS fletchers are very professional at a reasonable price... would recommend in a flash!!!

I would like to thank VHS Fletchers Solicitors, in particular Lauren Fisher. I could not fault the professionalism and support which was provided to my family. Lauren not only did a fantastic job in representing us but she took the time to explain the process and reassure us as a family. If it was not for Lauren the ordeal would have been a lot more daunting. We was made to feel at ease and at no point did we not understand what was happening or felt that we did not have the very best representation.

Customer Testimonials

Very reliable solicitors. Have dealt with cases previously.

I called on a Friday to book a solicitor for Sunday evening at 10:30PM, was advised someone would be there. Called on the evening of Sunday, there had been an admin error and no solicitor was ready to come out. I was advised they will be sending someone else out and he was there within 15 mins after I called.

Nick Wright was helpful and professional, also one of there senior solicitors Martin Hadley.


Excellent service from start to finish!
Would recommend!!
Huge thanks to Lauren Fisher and Ruth Campbell for their amazing work with my case! 5*


I highly recommend VHS Fletchers Solicitors. Andrew Wesley and his dedicated team work tirelessly to get the best possible result for the client. Mr Wesleys presence in the courtroom is exceptional. He is respectful, courteous, calm, considered, adaptable and is able to build a rapport with a jury. He and the team are a much needed breath of fresh air in the justice system. A genuinely caring, well established firm.
