You should not face prosecution for a burglary offence without legal representation. If Morton’s solicitors are involved at an early stage of an investigation, we are often able to affect the outcome. Call us for immediate advice by telephone on 0161 477 1121.


Acting Early Gives You The Best Chance

If Morton’s solicitors are involved at an early stage of an investigation, we are often able to affect the outcome.

Some of the most important decisions made in relation to a case are made at the police station. 

You are not obliged to say anything to the police and we advise all clients to maintain their right to silence until they speak with us.

A case can proceed solely on admissions made to the police without the need for witnesses to ever attend court.

You are entitled to have a solicitor present free of charge at any police interview.

This is true for what may seem to be the most trivial offence. You should never be interviewed without legal representation.

It is quite likely that you will face the prospect of a prison sentence.

If you have been invited to attend a Police Station we want to hear from you on 0161 477 1121.

Going To Court


Many cases will proceed to the Crown Court, particularly if the burglary alleged was of someone’s home, or had any professional hallmarks.

Successfully defending an allegation of burglary often involves:-

  • Detailed expert analysis of the prosecution evidence and exhibits
  • Expert cross examination of the prosecution witnesses
  • Cross examining police officers
  • The instruction of forensic experts in fingerprinting , DNA or cell site analysis (mobile phone reports)
  • Preparing detailed plans, diagrams and photographs of the scene
  • Site visits
  • Meteorological report
  • Preparing defence witness statements

Morton’s Solicitors can advise you and provide expert representation.
