We advise clients who are the victims of crime.
Our experience of representing clients in the criminal justice system can be invaluable to those caught up in the system as victims or complainants. We know that often you can feel that no one cares and that you have been forgotten. We can explain the system and the possible outcomes to you and liaise with the various people and bodies who are dealing with your case.
Sometimes just knowing that someone is on your side and is fighting your corner can be of great comfort at a very stressful time. With the best will in the world, the prosecuting authorities simply do not always have the time to explain the, at times, rather cumbersome process of law (and sometimes the explanation is no more than well intentioned guess work as the process can be very complicated to understand and explain even for a person working within the crimnal justice system who is not a lawyer). We can deliver advice when you need it and you will not have to wait for an appointment.
If you are unfortunate enough to have been the victim of a crime of violence we can help you to claim compensation.
If you are a victim of business crime we can also advise you on possible claims against the offender and how to deal with any employment issues which might arise. If you need to restructure your business to cope with the fallout we are on hand to help.
We also offer a service to families who have a family member accused of an offence. Often we find that we are approached where the accusation is of the utmost seriousness, but even relatively minor offences can be stressful for families struggling to cope with a situation not of their making.
You will find that we are approachable, understanding, sympathetic and practical in the advice that we give. Please telephone or complete the enquiry form.
