We encourage specialisation which has led to the development of our niche and buoyant benefits fraud and social housing fraud practice. With the increasing and unsustsainable pressure on legal aid fees we encourage the development of private criminal work which is now a growing part of our practice.
We have a wide range of criminal work from the most serious cases such as murders and large drugs conspiracies to substantial frauds and general run-of-the-mill cases in both the Magistrates and Crown Courts. There is excellent cross over between our civil and criminal departments including tenancy fraud and regulatory matters. We have been in the same location for 25 years and therefore we have regular repeat work from own clients across the generations.
We have successfully developed our private client criminal work, and this is an important aspect of the future development of the firm. The criminal department is well resourced enabling us to provide a 24-hour service
