Criminal & Motoring
Criminal Law is the area of law covering social conduct and determines whatever is threatening, harmful or otherwise endangering to the property, health, safety and moral welfare of people. It includes the punishment of people who violate these laws. We can help with a wide range of offences and have the expertise to protect your interests in any investigation by the police, Crown Prosecution Services, Serious Fraud Office and other regulatory bodies. The range of work we cover includes every type of offence known to criminal law, but in particular offences involving road traffic matters. We have a contract with the Legal Services Commission to carry out publicly funded work in criminal matters. This means that if you cannot afford to pay privately for our work, you may be eligible for public funding. We can advise you about that and help you submit the appropriate forms. We provide clients with a comprehensive and thoroughly professional service, whether in the police station, the magistrates court or the crown court, whatever the allegation may be. We are on both the court and duty Solicitor panel.
Motoring Offences and Traffic Matters
Our detailed experience and expertise in dealing with motoring cases enables us to assist clients who face alleged motoring offences, and where appropriate, we are able to present effective and successful defences to charges, thus enabling clients to retain their licenses and, in relevant circumstances, their careers. In those cases where the evidence against the client is overwhelming, and a guilty plea must follow, we are also experienced in presenting the maximum mitigation for those offences, in order to minimise the impact on our client.
Criminal Injuries Compensation
If you have been a victim of crime you may be eligible for compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board. We can advise you about this and help with your application. Contact a member of our Criminal Law team to find out how we can help.
