Established in Norwich since the early 1980s, Belmores is a small but highly successful practice, specialising in criminal defence and road traffic cases, and representing clients nationwide.
Unusually, we take on both private and publicly funded cases, and bring the same level of professionalism to both. More unusually still, one or other of the directors can be contacted at any time, day or night, 365 days a year, so that help is available when it is needed most.
Much of our business arises from personal and professional recommendation. And as for our reputation, we are content to rest on the assessment of independent publications such as The Legal 500 and Chambers Law Directory, in both of which Belmores is consistently rated as one of the top criminal defence firms in the eastern region.
"Described quite simply as "the leading firm in Norwich," Belmores remains the most active practice in the area. As one interviewee states: "They're the busiest because they're the best." The team handles a range of private and publicly funded criminal matters.
Simon Nicholls is an "exceptional advocate" who is described as being "head and shoulders above everybody" in the region. He's been one of the busiest practitioners in the area for many years."

"Specialist criminal defence and road traffic firm Belmores handles publicly and privately funded work and recently defended clients accused of participating in London's summer riots. The renowned Simon Nicholls and Dave Foulkes are the key figures."
