Why might you need a criminal law solicitor?
For minor criminal law offences such as assault or theft, or a more serious criminal offence such as violent crime or a sexual offence, you can locate and contact specialist criminal law solicitors. If you are facing allegations of fraud, you can locate and contact a specialist fraud solicitor.
If you are a company director and are being investigated or prosecuted for fraud, whether it is carousel/VAT fraud, a money-laundering offence or if you are facing a confiscation order, you can locate and contact a specialist business fraud solicitor. These areas of law often mix together elements of civil versus criminal law; it is important to have a specialist solicitor who is experienced working in both areas of law.
Or, if you are involved in a business that is facing investigation or prosecution for health and safety or environmental health breaches, you can locate and contact a specialist regulatory offences solicitor. Again, this area of law mixes civil versus criminal law features.
For motoring offences and other traffic offences, our specialist motoring offences solicitors can advise you on whether you can appeal a penalty.
