Crown Court

>Criminal Law


Although the majority of criminal cases in Northern Ireland are heard before a District Judge there are circumstances where the gravity of the offence means that the case will be tried in the Crown Court either with or without a jury. Any persons charged under the Terrorist Legislation will have their case dealt with by a Judge sitting without a jury known as a Diplock Court. In certain cases such as theft or serious assault clients can elect to have their cases tried before a jury.

O’Hare Solicitors will assure you of a dedicated, expert and professional approach to what is a trying and uncertain time. In addition to offering representation at trial we can also advise our clients on what they can expect from the process at each stage of proceedings and the consequences of such. Our service extends to advice and representation when considering appealing against sentence or conviction.
