Lawyers in Norwich
Norwich was, at the time of the Norman Conquest, one of the largest cities in England. At this time tax laws dictated that £20, six jars of honey, one bear and six dogs was the annual tax for Norwich. Lawyers in Norwich are not particularly focused on one area of law, although with this in mind there is a strong finance industry in Norwich and as a result there are a number of lawyers which specialise in finance and commerce.
If you are charged with a criminal offence in Norwich you may have to attend the magistrates’ court or the Crown Court. The magistrates’ court is located at Bishopgate, Norwich, Norfolk, NR3 1UP and is where people charged with less serious offences have their cases heard. If you are charged with such an offence you are entitled to free legal advice and should definitely have representation in court by a lawyer. Of course, the representation is only free if you fall within the thresholds for legal aid. If not you will need to instruct a solicitor, which Contact Law can help you with. Norwich Combined Court Centre deals with some criminal cases and civil cases and is located at The Law Courts, Bishopgate, Norwich NR3 1UR.
If you require only basic advice or do not require representation then you may decide that you do not want to instruct a lawyer.
