Sorry, we had a problem.
Our market leading criminal motor defence team is made up of specialist lawyers, geographically spread across the UK. We deal with the highest volume of fatal driving cases nationwide of any firm, and are the go to team for insurers, brokers, and corporate clients.
Our dedicated 24 hour service provides drivers with access to early advice from a specialist lawyer immediately after a collision.
Each member of our team understands the anxieties that drivers experience when they are unexpectedly implicated in a criminal investigation following a fatal or serious injury road traffic collision.
We have truly national coverage with teams based in the North, the Midlands, Wales, the South East, and the South West of England. We also have a team in Scotland which enables us to offer a true cross jurisdictional service
Our lawyers are specialist criminal lawyers with years of experience in the criminal justice system. The advice is tailored to the individual in every case.
Having our criminal motor defence lawyers work in conjunction with our catastrophic injury team avoids the unnecessary duplication of costs and ensures that issues of civil and criminal liability are suitably aligned.
Our early involvement ensures access to critical information which is otherwise unavailable until the conclusion of any criminal investigation and subsequent proceedings allowing for an early and credible assessment of civil liability by our specialist catastrophic injury lawyers. In cases where primary liability may be difficult to dispute, early access to information enables issues pertaining to contributory negligence to be identified, which could significantly reduce the value of any claim.
We also have a dedicated Police Misconduct Defence Team. Click here to read more about this team.
