Thank you for visiting

MacLaverty Cooper Atkins is a criminal law firm based in Kingston upon Thames.

We work to find strategic solutions to our clients' criminal legal problems, through our professional expertise and years of hands-on experience.

Our lawyers are commited to defending the rights of individuals - and we are the only firm in Surrey to be awarded a VHCC contract, which is a contract enabling us to provide publicly funded work to people charged with complex matters, whose trials are likely to last for several months.

Have you ever thought how you would respond if you were arrested or your home was searched? Do you know your rights?...

Services and Expertise


MacLaverty Cooper Atkins has been representing clients in South West London for more than 15 years. The firm offers advice and representation at police stations, Magistrates Courts and Crown Courts.


We have vast experience dealing with high profile cases which attract wide media interest. Our policy is never to accept or deny that we are instructed, this maintains the highest level of client confidentiality, and limits press reporting

Cost effective

We appreciate that cost must be a factor in determining choice of legal services providers. We accept both privately funded clients and those in receipt of Legal Aid. As a matter of course, we keep our costs to a minimum without diminishing the quality of service
