Ian Weights


I am a criminal defence solicitor appearing in the Magistrates Court, Youth Court and Crown Court across the Northwest on a daily basis.

I obtained a BA honours degree from Nottingham Trent University in 1984, and qualified in 1990. Since 1997 I have been a criminal law specialist.

I am also a duty solicitor and regularly attend police stations to advise suspects under caution in all manner of criminal cases. I have developed a particular skill for dealing with young Defendants.

Over the years I have dealt with the whole spectrum of criminal cases from straight forward motoring allegations to nationally significant homicide cases. I am a higher Court criminal advocate and appear increasingly in the Crown Court to represent Defendants facing serious criminal charges.
