How can Vardags help?

Whether someone pleaded guilty or was found guilty after trial there is a route to appeal the sentencing decision usually in situations where they can be shown to be wrong in law or wrong in principle or where it was simply excessive.

The regime for appealing a sentencing decision is different depending on whether the original decision was made in the Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court and there are different implications which may flow from the two separate procedures.

Vardags experience of challenging the legal status quo and taking cases to the highest courts means that we are well-placed to fight your appeal. We will leave no stone unturned and can often find innovative ways to put your case.
