PDS Solicitors

Although our lawyers deal mainly with cases in County Durham and North Yorkshire we may also be able to assist if you find yourself subject to a criminal investigation or proceedings in another area. In that event please contact us for a discussion about your case.

Our lawyers are also very experienced in advising and representing service personnel who find themselves subject to investigation by service police or prosecution in the Court Martial.

We are aware that it may not be easy for all our clients to attend our office in Darlington and can also make arrangements to see you away from the office at a local CAB office. In exceptional cases we may also be able to arrange home visits.

The office is open from 9.00am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday. We can also be contacted on our office number out of those hours to provide a service to clients arrested and held in police custody.
