Criminal Defence


Niall Breen & Co. Solicitors have extensive knowledge of all aspects of criminal defence and road traffic law prosecutions. Our experience ranges from minor public order and theft matters in the District Court to serious Assaults and Sexual Assaults before the Circuit Criminal Court and Central Criminal Courts.


We attend Court on a weekly basis and are on the criminal legal aid panel. We represent clients through the free legal aid scheme as well as private clients. If legal aid is granted by the Court, our fees will be discharged in full by the Legal Aid Board.


In order to make an application for Legal Aid, it is necessary to submit a Statement of Means to the Court.


If you have been arrested for questioning, we can attend at the Garda Station to provide advice to you. We have also appeared in the Court of Criminal Appeal on behalf of clients and brought successful Judicial Reviews in the High Court.
