Motoring & Crime

The law in England and Wales is constantly evolving; in the last ten years successive Governments have added more than 1000 new offences to the Statute book. Although many of what might be termed as ‘ordinary’ offences such as theft, assault and public order have remained largely unchanged, the law relating to areas such as sexual offences, proceeds of crime and many motoring offences have continued to change. With this in mind, it is important that you obtain the right advice if you find yourself in trouble not only with the Police, but also the Department of Work and Pensions, Trading Standards, Department of Business Innovation and Skills etc.

At mosshaselhurst, our Solicitors have many years experience in dealing in all areas of criminal defence and motoring law. We will give you sound, practical advice when you are arrested, attend a police station for voluntary interview, charged with an offence or receive a Requisition to attend at the Magistrates Court.
