Based in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre, we have over 20 years of combined experience, having worked for some of Scotland’s leading defence firms. We represent clients in all criminal courts across Scotland, such as the Justice of the Peace Court; Sheriff Court and High Court. We represent a vast number of individuals at trial – each and every client we represent is important to us, from the very beginning, all the way through to the end of the process. We undertake many summary and sheriff and jury trials.

Our criminal defence solicitors at Stewart and O’Neill have years of experience acting on behalf of our clients in courts across Scotland. If you have been accused of or charged with a crime, you will need expert criminal defence advice and representation.

Not only do we represent people by attending police interviews at police stations, but we can also advise you on impending court appearances and representing you in court. Our advice and representation can involve any stage in the prosecution 24/7. We are able to provide complete advice and/or represent you for any criminal offence including motoring allegations and are happy to offer you free advice to discuss your options with you.
