About Us

Nelson Guest and Partners are an established firm, with a main office in South East London. We specialise in helping clients with criminal defence, road traffic and regulatory matters and are here to service and protect the legal interests of those whom we represent. The practice concentrates entirely on defence work on behalf of the individual or the company we are acting for.

Our experience is one of the reasons why you could proceed safely knowing that you are in good hands and that the person you instruct will do their best to get you a favourable result, whatever the circumstances.

We pride ourselves on providing clients with the level of service they require and try and take a boutique tailored approach to each and every matter in order to provide you with a service that is ultimately personal.

Powers of Attorney

Our passion for defending those with vulnerabilities or concerns for their own situation extends to Power of Attorney. We are here to try and guide you through the process and make sure that the Power is executed properly in order to try and avoid problems further down the line.


We can provide fixed fees to any client seeking our assistance. We believe that working on an agreed fixed fee basis gives you the peace of mind of knowing exactly how much your case will cost at any given time. However, in certain circumstances, and depending on the nature of the matter you are seeking assistance with (i.e. if the matter is a criminal one), you may be eligible for Legal Aid.
