Adrian Pearce

What I do

I qualified as a solicitor in 2007 and joined Smith Partnership in 2012. I am a Partner in our Crime team in Staffordshire and have nearly 30 years' experience in all aspects of criminal law. My role is extremely varied and I advise and assist clients on a wide range of matters both at the police station and at court. I head up the High Profile/Serious Crime Department. I work in conjunction with Derek Angus. Although I cover all areas of criminal law, my main focus is on serious and complex cases ranging from large scale conspiracies, drugs cases, rapes, murders, wounding, Proceeds of Crime and more. I attend on matters throughout the UK.

I am a workaholic and can frequently be found reading evidence, sending emails and speaking with clients outside of normal office hours.

My key interests are weight training, supporting Aston Villa and watching movies.

I needed legal representation at crown court. After a friend’s recommendation, I approached Adrian Pearce. This was a very worrying and stressful period in my life, I was extremely thankful and appreciative of the successful outcome.

From my very first contact with Adrian Pearce he always kept me informed and treated me in a very professional but also friendly way, nothing was ever too much trouble.

I would highly recommend Adrian Pearce to anyone who requires legal representation.

I have often needed legal assistance and I’ve always used Adrian Pearce. He has always given me very good legal advice and represented me on several occasions. Adrian has always been easy to get hold of day or night and always follows up after the event to check everything is OK. I always pass his number on to my friends and would recommend his services to anyone.

I've used Adrian on a number of occasions with a 100% success rate, I no longer consider Adrian as my solicitor but more as a friend.

Adrian has spared me wasted time on many occasions, I personally would recommend him at the highest level. Straight talking and one of us. 

- Mr M Deeming

We have met many law professionals during our personal, professional and social lives. Whilst many have been competent and experienced, none of them have come close to the standards of Adrian Pearce.

We contacted Adrian during an extremely stressful time in our lives. The law firm we were using were not being proactive, and as such we were living in a precarious state of limbo.

After emailing Adrian outlining our legal situation, he responded almost immediately and an appointment was made. Adrian is fair, transparent, professional and an absolute gentleman. He discusses costs openly, and fights for his clients. Contacting Adrian was the best decision we have ever made.

Adrian was with us throughout the entire process and we could not be happier with the outcome. We recommend Adrian Pearce to all of our family, friends and colleagues who may require legal assistance.

Adrian is a gifted criminal solicitor, and we consider him not only to be a legal expert but also a friend. 

Thank you again Adrian.
