JVA Law specialise in criminal defence and serious fraud defence. Based in Covent Garden, serving all of London, our goal is to deliver the best possible service to our clients.


Criminal Defence

Criminal law is a complex area. Those who are legally represented usually fare better in proceedings than those who represent themselves.


Our Service

We pride ourselves on careful and thorough preparation of cases as well as an active defence of our clients' interests.


Defending Your Rights

Any allegation of criminal misconduct is serious for the person against whom it is directed and we aim to deal with all clients sympathetically and promptly as well as obtaining the best result possible.


We represent clients at any stage of the proceedings including police station, magistrates court and crown court.

Serious Fraud

We deal with cases involving all areas of fraud including diversion fraud, advance fee fraud, fraudulent trading, missing trader intra community fraud, money laundering, VAT fraud, revenue and tax fraud, insurance fraud and pension fraud.

Motoring Offences

Internet Crime
