The criminal justice system is an alien world to most people. It has its own rules, its own language, its own ways of working.

At Shearman Bowen, this is our world. Our track record includes successfully defending clients at all levels of the criminal justice system. That experience and expertise feeds into every case we take on, whatever the problem you face. We know from experience just how stressful these situations can be. We have been there a thousand times before, and our understanding and insight can support you through difficult times.
