Who we are

Craghill & Tuckers is a specialist criminal defence practice based in Brighton and Hastings. We are the Sussex office of leading national criminal defence firm  Tuckers Solicitors LLP, who have offices in London, Manchester, Birmingham, Kent, Stoke, Staffordshire and Somerset.

We are approachable and down-to-earth. We are lawyers, but first and foremost human beings and we understand just how stressful it can be to be accused of a crime and to have to attend the police station or Court.

We will work hard to get you the best outcome. Our job is not to judge you but to defend you, no matter what the nature of the allegation. We pride ourselves on our ability to quickly grasp the issues in your case and give you a simple, honest assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the allegations against you. We will then  guide you through the process at every stage and do our very best to ease what can be a difficult and stressful experience.

Despite popular opinion, crime really does not pay. Much of our work is criminal legal aid work and our payment from the Legal Aid Agency is often shockingly low. We really don’t do the job for the money – we do it because we are genuinely passionate about what we do.

We are all dedicated, experienced criminal defence advocates. Craghill & Tuckers only employ seven solicitors, so we are able to offer you a more personal service. One solicitor will have conduct of your case/s throughout. Experience has taught us that our clients value this personal service and that continuity of representation can help get better results for you and will certainly make you feel more comfortable.
