Central Court Lawyers were founded in 1997 with a simple ethos, the pursuit of excellence in the provision of legal services. Since then, the firm's increasing market share has vindicated this approach, which continues to be the driving force behind the firm. Central court lawyers believe the law is a vocation rather than a simple job, and we appreciate the significance of the cases which we deal with for our clients. We will ensure that our clients receive the best legal advice possible, delivered in an understanding and professional manner whether repeat offenders or people involved in the criminal justice system for the first time. Legal advice is available 24 hours a day every day.
