About Us


Have you or a relative just been reported to the police, or are you suspected of committing a crime?
Are you in urgent need of specialist criminal legal advice?

Our specialist criminal solicitors are on constant stand-by throughout Scotland, to give immediate legal advice, and will also attend police stations for a police interview. It is crucial that advice in relation to criminal charges is taken at the earliest opportunity. This is especially important before you speak to the police or other investigation agency, whether that be an informal discussion or a formal taped interview.

What Sets Us Apart from Other Firms

Emergency Lawyers restricts its business to a small number of select cases per year. We neither solicit nor accept every case. This ensures that the cases we take on receive our full focus and attention.

We set ourselves a very high and exacting standard. Before we commit to your case, we need to satisfy ourselves that we can represent you to this standard without compromise. If we take a case, our client can be assured they will have full access to our time and expertise.

Our strategy is unique and has allowed us to achieve unrivalled success in the most complex of criminal cases.

We will discuss every case, but will let you know immediately if your case is one which fits our criteria.

Our expert lawyers are available 24/7 to discuss your case via phone or email. Call today and speak directly with a solicitor who can start your legal defence!
