Mortons are awesome!Excellent
I was remanded to custody for an offence that I hadn't done. I was stupid to not request a solicitor at the police station. I regretted that decision later.

My family have used Mortons before and told me to ask for them at Court. Mortons took on my case. Immediately I felt better as they explained what the evidence was, the procedure and what was going to happen.

I got bail thanks to Mark Shepherd at Mortons. The magistrates wanted conditions which were a bit ridiculous,...

FromAlan Wilson
Top Crime Solicitors in StockportExcellent
The police have raided my address on half a dozen occasions for non-existent stolen goods and other false allegations. The first couple of times I knew I hadn't done anything wrong, but the attitude of the police was such that on the last couple of occasions I asked for Morton's on the recommendation of a neighbour.
Simon Morton attended for me at the Police Station. He rightly gave the police a
good rollicking. I was bailed after the interview. Simon chased the matter up before...

Failure to provide a breath sampleExcellent
I was driving along minding my own business when I got stopped by police and after an argument with the officer about my severe asthma he arrested me and took me to the police station. I asked to speak to my Solicitor immediately at the police station because I felt I was being manhandled but they wouldn't let me until I had blown on the box. The police asked me to blow into the machine and I tried and tried but couldn't give any more breath. The officer warned me and when I failed again they...

Simon E. Morton
Managing Director & Solicitor-Advocate from Mortons Solicitors in Stockport (Greater Manchester & Cheshire).

My firm specialise in Criminal Defence and Motoring Law.

Many of my clients are professionals just like you, doctors/nurses, business people, professional drivers etc.

You may have been drinking & socialising and had to lawfully act in self-defence to defend themselves and are now accused of assault.

You may have been drinking the previous night, but not realised the following morning that you may still be over the limit and are now accused of drink driving.

In these and many more examples my firm & I may be able to help.
