With decades of experience working in Criminal Law, you can rest assured that we have the skills to guide you through your case. But we don’t stop at simply guiding you through it. There is so much more that comes into play than the legal side of a Criminal Law case.

Butler and Co are a small firm, but we are highly respected due to the care and attention that goes into every single one of our cases. Every client is unique, but every client is important, and that’s how we treat you.

Being charged with a criminal offence is overwhelming and highly stressful for many people. That’s why we focus on providing support and first-class care to help every one of our clients deal with the emotional side of things, too. It’s not just about getting the case over and done with; it’s about understanding you and how the process affects you.


We aim to care for, support, and guide each of our clients through their case with as little stress and anxiety as possible. We firmly believe that representing people in Criminal Law is all about respect, empathy, and personalisation.

We fully understand the gravity of a criminal charge and its impact on someone and their family. That’s why we will support you every step of the way and provide you with the best advice and representation possible.

We know you may feel overwhelmed and anxious, but we will treat you with care and consideration. It doesn’t matter your specific case; we are here to help.

We are a team of highly skilled and experienced lawyers who know how to handle a variety of cases. With a proven track record of high-profile cases, we pride ourselves on providing first-class service every time.

It is vital to know the intricacies of every client’s case, which is why we will work tirelessly to understand your case inside and out. Criminal Law isn’t a “one size fits all”, so we tailor our defence strategy in every case. This level of understanding helps us reach the best possible outcome, which is what we always strive for.
