Estimates of length of trials are decided by the court, which considers the number of prosecution and defence witnesses.

* Fees quoted here will increase if expert witnesses are involved.

It is best to contact me as soon as you become aware of proceedings against you, even if the court date is months away. However, I may still be able to assist if your case is due in court tomorrow, phone me and let me see if I can help you.
