Criminal Law Issues

If you have been charged with a criminal offence, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible. A lack of understanding of the criminal justice process may hinder your chances of gaining the fairest and most advantageous outcome. From the outset it is critical to know what to expect if you are facing a charge in order to protect your rights. Mistakes can easily be made during an accused person’s first period of contact with police or with an investigative body. For example, decisions as to whether to remain silent or whether to admit guilt, can adversely impact upon the defences that might be available.

We undertake to guide you through what can be a terrifying time, enabling you to make informed decisions about what course to take. Be assured that we will do everything necessary to fight for your rights.
