The firm was formed in 2007 with the merger of Allen & Partners which started in 1983 and the criminal department ofHoole & Co with even longer experience of criminal defence work.
As a consequence, Allen Hoole is one of the largest criminal defence practices in the South West of England. We have offices in Bristol, Keynsham and Cheltenham, helping people throughout the South West.
At Allen Hoole, you will find a team of lawyers with decades of experience. Our dedication to fighting for people who have been accused of crimes means that we know how to protect you and your rights.
We consider it our duty to examine every aspect of your case. By careful scrutiny of every detail and by enlisting qualified experts when necessary, we will ensure that no stone is left unturned. We understand that you want one person dealing with your court case throughout.
We are one of the few criminal defence firms who have the resources to employ barristers in-house in our Crown Court department to deal specifically with advice and representation before a Judge and Jury.
We believe this brings a specific benefit to your case by ensuring early involvement by the person who will eventually be representing you before the Judge and guards against your barrister being changed sometimes at the last moment.
