About us

We’re a team of specialist criminal defence advocates based in Cornwall, working within criminal law and litigation since 1996

Howell Hylton

Fred Howell joined Peter Hylton in 1996 and Howell Hylton was formed basing itself at an office in Falmouth.  The firm at that time practised in many areas of law, including Criminal Law and Litigation.  Over the years Howell Hylton has gone through many changes to move with the times.

There are three directors of Howell Hylton Solicitors – Elliott Moore, Neil Lewin and Robin Smith.  The directors and team at Howell Hylton always aim to provide quality service and assistance.  We are proud to be able to promote our fee earners and support staff who individually and together have a wealth of experience and knowledge when dealing with all types of cases.

Providing the best service possible

We provide a comprehensive range of specialist criminal services from the first police station attendance interview through to representation before the criminal courts. We have many years of experience dealing with demanding and complex allegations. We will act in a professional, confidential and considerate manner when dealing with your case. We endeavour to provide the best service possible for our clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

We will assess your eligibility for Legal aid or explore other options where the costs of your case may be met. For example, you may have insurance which covers legal costs.

Where clients are not eligible for legal aid, fees will be charged – read the Costs page for more information on costs.

Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Praesent tempor congue pretium. Aliquam libero ante, eleifend vel ligula vitae, fermentum rutrum eros. Nam quis vestibulum ligula. Aliquam erat volutpat. Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, it empties today of its strength.

We cannot provide a timescale of when your hearing will take place, as this depends on the Court listing for that day

The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved.   We will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.

Every case is unique.  There will always be variables and the dynamics of a case can change.  We will do our best to keep you informed and up-to-date.
