The Criminal Law Solicitors' Association proudly represents criminal law solicitors throughout England and Wales.

We regret that we cannot give legal advice as an association but our members will be pleased to help.

Find a criminal lawyer in your area

Our members are engaged and committed criminal lawyers. They represent clients from the early stages of an investigation through to police station interviews and magistrates and crown court appearances.

They can be instructed on a private client basis and most offer legal aid. All are committed to securing the best outcome for their clients. You can instruct a CLSA lawyer confident that you will get a top lawyer for the job. Search for a lawyer in your area to represent you at a police station or court.

Separate searches are available for Solicitors requiring an agent or wishing to refer on a client and to find Solicitor Advocates by Crown Court.

Membership brings with it support for the only organisation exclusively fighting for better terms for criminal solicitors throughout England and Wales. We respond to all important legislative proposals impacting on criminal law and have representatives on many important consultative bodies. We have been representing our members now for 25 years. We regularly engage directly with the MOJ on issues impacting on criminal law. We have a vibrant email group and facebook page where you can get support from fellow professionals and a lively and informative annual conference.

Applications for full membership are welcome from criminal law solicitors. Associate membership is for all those, including police station Legal Executives, Accredited Representatives and paralegals, working in criminal law firms and who are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.
