Excellent Defence Success Rates

At Whiterose Blackmans LLP we are able to offer expert legal advice on all aspects of Criminal Law at all levels ensuring you the best chance of success in your case.

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.

We offer a free initial consultation in all areas of law. We have specialist solicitors in all our practice areas, all of whom have many years of experience. We advise and represent our clients in a pro-active, friendly and honest manner in order to obtain the best possible outcome.

  • 5 star review  Having has a massive setback when my wife had to leave the country, we contacted the solicitors and they fitted an appointment in the very next day. They fully explained the situation which was to me as clear as mud. and advised on a plan of action. they made the whole process pain free and i was kept fully updated every step of the way. Our dealings were with Mudassir Ali and i can not praise his handling of the situation enough, he certainly went above and beyond to ensure everything was done and completed in as short a time as possible and with as little disruption as possible. Thank you for all your assistance. My wife returns in December so a great result
