With the festive season close at hand courts inevitably turn to who exactly is going to be providing cover over the Christmas period.

Inevitably, as we have the last 26 years, the firm’s solicitors and clerks will be providing cover for Police Stations and Courts around the Christmas period. Rotas for Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, Sheffield, Barnsley, Doncaster and North Lincolnshire have already been drawn up.

Thanks to our successful bid for the Criminal Defence Direct Call Centre, we find ourselves with the new, and slightly more complicated challenge of ensuring that we have call centre staff available for every minute of the Christmas period to offer advice to Police Station detainees who don’t qualify for assistance under the General Criminal Contract.

The inestimable Rosemary Holland has been responsible for preparing the 24 Hour Rota for Christmas and the New Year, which she seems to have resolved over a month ahead of time. We would like to offer special thanks to Rosemary for all her hard work and particular thanks to those who are going to be working on the emergency lines at CDD while Santa is doing his rounds.
