Grayson Willis Bennett, specialist criminal law practice

Grayson Willis Bennett LLP

Specialist Criminal Law Practice

About Us

Grayson Willis Bennett was formed in 1999 as the first specialist criminal practice in Sheffield. In 2006 the company expanded with the addition of the criminal law department from Irwin Mitchell solicitors and in 2008 with the opening of a Rotherham Office and VHCC departments. This has served to create one of the leading defence teams in the north of England with a nationwide reputation.

At a time when many practices are withdrawing from criminal legal aid work our firm has actively expanded our range of skilled personnel. Our partners and staff are passionately dedicated to defending individuals facing prosecution in the criminal courts.

We have Higher Courts Advocates and “in house” Counsel, capable of dealing with the most complex of cases.
