One of the most serious offences before a criminal court is the offence of 'perverting the course of justice', this is because it strikes at the very heart of the criminal justice system.

Due to its seriousness, immediate custody is almost always inevitable, yet there are a surprising number of people who commit this offence, thinking that they will easily get away with it.

Xmas Opening Hours

As businesses prepare for Christmas, it is customary to inform clients of seasonal opening hours. For many, it will simply be a case of announcing the days on which the business will be closed, but for us, the position is a little more complicated than that.

We close, but we don't.

Please see our office Christmas and New Years opening hours for 2017-18

However, if you need urgent assistance with a criminal or motoring law related issued, any time of day or night, we have a team of people to assist, you can contact us by calling Mortons Solicitors on 0161 477 1121.

The work of a criminal lawyer does not lend itself to regular working hours, nor is there any time, day or night when we are not available. We offer a level of accessibility that few other professionals can match, and we are immensely proud of that fact.

When arrested on Christmas Day, as some people inevitably will be, we will be there by their side to offer timely legal advice to protect their interests.

Even the criminal courts are open for business during at least part of the festive period, allowing for bail applications and other urgent court business.

And of course, those in prison can experience particular difficulties as they are reminded of families far away, also impacted by the trauma of custody.

We take this opportunity to wish all of you a peaceful and restful holiday season, but if for any reason you need us, we will be there.

Over the festive periods of Christmas and the new year one might enjoy the well earned break with a tipple or two.

One must however have regard to the potential dangers for revellers. With the expected wintery temperatures and potential risks of ice/snow the roads of Greater Manchester/Cheshire will already be treacherous enough.

This month began with the annual anti- drink & drugs driving campaigns.  Drivers are warned of the risks associated with drink driving and drug driving
