Crime - "The most terrifying 24 hours of my life"

 

Most people's worst nightmare is speaking in public, but imagine a scenario of your dreams being shattered by the smashing-in of your front door, and being arrested and taken to a police station for a serious offence.  A false allegation made by an unbalanced ex-partner or work colleague; an accounting oversight leading to an allegation from an employer.  Everybody thinks that it can never happen to them.

The court proceedings that can follow can lead to huge damage to a person's reputation, as well as causing massive stress at home, as the accused looks at losing their job, home, relationship, and possibly liberty.

We can help you 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, at any police station in England & Wales, and in proceedings before the magistrates courts, crown courts, and Supreme Court.
