Nicola Hutchinson


“Nicola, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for your time and help today. Your advice and sincerity towards me was invaluable and I am extremely grateful. At 1415 this afternoon the CPS decided I had no case to answer and I was released. I will keep your card but, with all due respect, I hope I personally have no requirement for your specialty going forward. To be honest Nicola, I cannot express how thankful I am for your help this morning. I wish you all the best in your career and life.”

Nicola is a Solicitor-Advocate and leads the Magistrates Court team in our Bristol office.  She is a duty solicitor and has experience advising and assisting clients at Police Station, and representing and defending clients at the Magistrates Court; and also attained her Higher Rights accreditation enabling her to conduct advocacy in the Crown Court.

With a particular reputation for her persuasive advocacy skills, Nicola is sought out by clients charged with a range of offences, and routinely represents those facing allegations of fraud, possession or cultivation of drugs, possession with intent to supply, drug conspiracies, sexual offences, public order offences, motoring offences including excess alcohol, burglary, criminal damage, and arson in the Magistrates Court.

Nicola’s knowledge of criminal law is outstanding, as is her attention to detail in the careful preparation of each one of her cases. She is an open minded and approachable solicitor who is dedicated to her client’s cases and their well-being and has therefore quickly amassed, retained and developed a significant and loyal client base in the Bristol area, frequently going above and beyond what is required to help them in securing good results.
