Criminal Law - when the abuse is a crime


By Alessandra Vieira De Aquino

The Criminal Law Act 1977 amended the previous 1967 Act for England and Wales. The Act set down regulations for the two new crimes of conspiracy and trespassing. It also redefined some other crimes, such as; misuse of drugs, sexual harassment to under 16s and bomb hoaxes.

Common offences

Criminal law embeds a range of complicated matters. As a case handler I often get clients calling in about matters like drugs possession and sexual harassment. As us case handlers are prepared to advise you on what to do and an appropriate solicitor.

The majority of crimes we deal are:

  • Burglary
  • Domestic violence   
  • Theft
  • Sexual assault
  • Motoring offences
  • Fraud
  • Drugs possession

Motoring offences, for instance, is a recurring issue we deal with, whether drink driving, careless driving, speeding or driving without insurance. In these cases, many solicitors can work on a fixed fee basis, depending on the type of offence you committed.

Another area of criminal law that can be handled on a fixed fee basis is domestic violence. If you have, or know someone who has, been the victim of any sort of psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional abuse in your/their intimate relationship, you can count on us to help you finding the right solicitor to provide you with the right legal assistance.

We can also help you to find a solicitor for other complex cases, like fraud, when further investigation may be required.
