Our firm's set-up, means every member of staff at Horsman Solicitors, takes a real interest in your case, from day one, striving to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

By having meetings with our in-house team, even before your case reaches the first stage of the Crown Court, this ensures you are fully prepared for the Crown Court Proceedings.

Our Crown Court team, managed by Lesley Hutchison, will ensure your case is properly presented in the Crown Court to the standard Horsman Solicitors demand on your behalf and that of which the Judges expect by our firm's reputation and standing in the Crown Court.
