The Solicitor For You
Facing the prospect of a criminal investigation or proceedings can be a daunting prospect, one that can often inflict a heavy burden not just on themselves, but also on their families.It is imperative that legal support is in place from the beginning.

The 'Right' Solicitor
 It might be a cliché to state that you must choose the 'right' solicitor, however, if your case depends on legal aid funding, a wrong choice may not be easily remedied as courts will need good justification to transfer legal aid to another firm.

If you are unhappy with your solicitor then the sooner this is resolved, the better.
How do you find the Solicitor for you?

Baby shakingThe unlawful death of a baby/child is always an extremely traumatic act and one that shakes any society to its core. For some parents, it represents not only a deeply personal and tragic loss but the beginning of a nightmare.

The reality in most murder and manslaughter cases is that the perpetrator is known, and close to the victim. Investigators will, therefore, look closely at the parents when a child dies, an approach which for a grieving parent can only add to the pain that they are suffering.

Knife crime is very much on the political agenda, with a number of stabbings having taken place over the last few weeks, resulting in deaths and injury, and no doubt the loss of liberty in due course for those responsible. Attention is now focused on using deterrent sentences to discourage knife possession.knife crime
