Worried about legal costs?

If you’ve been arrested or charged with a crime, whether summoned from home or currently in custody in a London police station, we can help you straight away. With our base in London, we help people all over the city to get immediate access to professional and friendly legal advice.

Arrested in the middle of the night? That’s not a problem. We have a 24/7 emergency line and a roster of experienced criminal defence solicitors who are on call either to act as a one-off duty solicitor at the police station, or as a long term partner in your legal defence.

Contact the legal aid team at Stuart Miller Solicitors yourself or via the police office at the station and we will assign someone to help you without delay. You can also call us on behalf of someone else if needed. Our emergency number is 07980 000 076.

Take early action

Our goal is to end proceedings quickly and cleanly, before they go to trial.

Get the support you need – legally, emotionally, and financially. From Legal Aid help to the courtroom, we’re committed to your well-being.

The many meetings we had at your offices always comforted me; however it’s your process and out of hours support that assisted me the most, both in preparation and emotionally. Being able to contact you at any time out of office hours was critical for me mentally.

Receive nothing short of the legal advice and treatment you deserve

Just about everybody struggles financially at some point in their lives, but that shouldn’t mean that you cannot access the high quality legal representation and professional treatment that you are entitled to by law.

We understand how stressful it can be if you have to worry about whether you will get legal help. That’s why we help people just like you secure legal aid coverage every single day.

“I had troubles in my business that spilled over into my personal finances, and that made it really tough to find the money I needed for lawyer and court fees when it came to defending a false allegation that was made against me. I was able to arrange legal representation from the police station by just giving the officer Stuart Miller Solicitors’ name, and I had a duty solicitor with me within the hour. I highly recommend this team.” - Jason

Our specialist team of legal aid solicitors exists to give you the peace of mind, guidance, and legal representation you need to defend your rights.

From the first moment I felt a sense of urgency for my case and a real concern for the outcome, I knew that no matter how my case turned out, Gabriel was putting 110% forward for me. He worked incredibly hard on my case as I received emails at 11pm on Saturday nights. He came in during his days off to meet with me and to prepare for the case because it was one of the few days that I was available.

Avoid unnecessary chaos and confusion

Dealing with the legal system doesn’t need to be any more stressful than it already is. If you are wondering what happens next, how you can claim legal aid, how long securing representation will take, or if you have any other questions, get in touch with our team day or night.

“When I got arrested, I knew I’d done something wrong but that didn’t stop me from wanting to get the best outcome possible. I called Stuart Miller Solicitors and arranged for a solicitor to meet me at the police station that same day. My solicitor was really friendly, totally non-judgemental, and she helped me understand what I needed to do and say in the police interview. I don’t know what I would have done without her.” - Michelle

“The cost of legal representation was scary for me, as I’d recently lost my job and had to provide for my whole family as my wife was off work after an operation at the time. The team at Stuart Miller Solicitors were brilliant - they helped me figure out what I could claim and how to do it, and I felt they really understood my position. I got my legal costs covered and my solicitor ended up getting my case thrown out before it even went to court. Could not have asked for a better outcome.” - Ryan
