Youth Court

For many young people and their parents or carers, the experience in the Youth Court is one which is daunting. We aim to alleviate such fears by providing a service that guides both clients and their parents/carers through the process of the Youth Court.

We will ensure that the young client is advised of all the procedures in the Youth Court in language that is simple to understand but without being patronising or judgemental. We aim to include parents/carers in consultation but only with our client’s permission, confidentiality is of paramount importance.

If you are seeking legal defence representation in a youth court, contact us today to discuss your case.

Magistrates Court

We represent our clients in magistrates courts in Leeds and across West Yorkshire. We strive to ensure that clients are kept as informed as possible about their case and will advise them before, during and after their court date.

We will consult with clients before their hearing and discuss the evidence against them. We will advise on plea, venue and the consequences of no plea, guilty plea and not guilty pleas entered at the magistrates’ court.

We are committed to delivering the best legal defence possible and we will build a robust defence to ensure the best possible outcome for our clients.

Crown Court

In the Crown Court, trials are heard by a judge and jury, otherwise by a judge alone. All Crown Court cases start in the magistrates’ court. The Crown Court usually deals with more serious offences such as murder, rape, robbery and serious assaults. These are known as “indictable only” and can only be dealt with in the Crown Court, although they start in the magistrates’ court. The Crown Court also deals with appeals against decisions of the magistrates’ court. Appeals here are heard by a judge and two lay magistrates.

  • review rating 5  I used Whiterose Blackmans Solicitors to apply for my spouse visa and the case was dealt with by Mudassir Ali. Mudassir was very friendly and efficient and was certainly an expert in this field with his detailed knowledge and professionalism. The service was excellent from start to finish. The advice and requirements were made very clear to me and Mudassir was very thorough, spending a significant amount of time putting the case together and making sure nothing was missed. I was kept up to date on a regular basis and was successful with the visa being approved quickly and on the first attempt. I would like to thank Mudassir Ali and the staff at Whiterose Blackmans for all their hard work and the excellent service during the case. I would also highly recommend this firm to friends and family in the future. Excellent service and a very happy customer.
