Crime & Criminal Investigation Lawyers, South Lakes

You don’t have to be a “criminal” to find yourself part of a criminal investigation case. People often make foolish mistakes or misjudgements. From simple speeding offences to complex crime such as fraud, we have the expertise and experience you need.

  • I am being investigated/have been arrested more

    Finding yourself involved directly, or implicated in, criminal proceedings is an incredibly worrying and frightening experience, especially if you are arrested and detained in police custody for any period of time.

    It is vital that you know and understand what your rights are under these circumstances, particularly with regard to how long you can be kept in custody, how to conduct yourself and what you should (and should not) say while under arrest.

    We are members of the Duty Solicitor Scheme which provides free advice and representation at the Police Station or at Court. If matters progress we can prepare for and represent you at the Magistrates and Crown Court. If you are financially eligible, then Legal Aid is available.

    Whether you have been charged with theft or assault, fraud or sexual offences, we have the experience and expertise to help you through it.

  • Motoring Offences more

    Motoring offences such as speeding, excess alcohol, or charges as a result of an accident can affect any household and the implications can be far reaching, with a potential impact on jobs and earnings. Taking early advice is therefore vital.

  • Youth Crime more

    Young offenders are treated differently from adults and it is therefore important to have specialist advice. Sometimes their actions are a result of foolish and immature behaviour and everything possible should be done to try and minimise the impact of this behaviour on their future.

  • Drugs and Alcohol more

    Sadly alcohol and drug related offences are a growing concern in our local area and often they lead to other offences such as theft or assault. It is important that people get help where needed.

  • Benefit Fraud more

    In the current economic and political climate, Benefit Fraud investigations and prosecutions are on the increase. As with any investigation, it vital to take advice at an early stage.

  • Business Prosecutions more

    Businesses can sometimes find themselves on the wrong end of an investigation by authorities such as the Health & Safety Executive or HMRC. We can offer the appropriate expertise to ensure that the impact on your business is minimised.
