We offer advice and representation at all stages of any investigation, whether it is attending an initial interview with you at the Council or Benefit Office if your claim is suspected as being fraudulent, to appearing in the Magistrates or Crown Court if you received a postal requisition or summons and are being prosecuted. These cases often involve quite large sums of money, have a lot of paperwork to look through and have serious consequences including Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA) investigations to recover any money the authorities say have been wrongly paid.
In our view legal advice and defence is a very good idea at the earliest possible opportunity. Contact
David Smith or Anthony Egan to discuss how our professional defence solicitors can help and whether legal aid is available.
