Belmores Belmores are specialist criminal defence and road traffic solicitors and we excel in both fields - so much so that a large proportion of our business arises from personal and professional recommendation. In fact, 97.5% of our clients would recommend our services to others and that's a hard-won statistic that speaks volumes about our strong commitment, our insistence upon quality and excellence - and our approachable, no-nonsense style.

We take on both private and legal aid cases, nationally and locally in Norfolk, and bring the same level of determined professionalism to both. Unusually, one or other of our directors can be contacted at any time, day or night, 365 days a year, to ensure that expert legal help is available when it is needed most. That's quite a personal commitment, but& we think typifies the passion and professionalism that runs throughout our hard-working team.

Our dedication has paid off in terms of the reputation that only a track-record as successful as ours can bring.
