Lawyers in Canterbury

There are a number of services that can be offered by a lawyer. Canterbury, whilst a relatively small, rural area, has a diverse range of law firms. Lawyers in these firms tend to practise in areas of law such as private client, conveyancing, employment law and small-scale civil litigation. This reflects the needs of the residents living in the area.

If you wish to pursue a matter in court, it is imperative to contact a lawyer. Canterbury does have both a civil and criminal court. The address of the ‘Combined Court Centre’ is The Law Courts, Chaucer Road, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 1ZA. This court will hear a range of civil matters including family law matters. 

The address of the magistrates’ court is Broad Street, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 2UE. This court will hear low-level criminal offences, for example minor road-traffic offences and petty theft. In some cases, the magistrate sitting in the court may refuse jurisdiction and have the case sent to the Crown Court. A lawyer can advise you on this and on all the procedures that come with criminal proceedings.
