How can we help?

Where you and your family have been affected by serious crime, we empathise with the trauma you are experiencing.

If your family have been affected by murder, manslaughter or another serious criminal offence we will make sure that law serves your best interests at this distressing time.

We understand the knock-on effect that murder, manslaughter and other criminal actions have on your health, wellbeing and security as a family.

Our award-winning team will support your family through the entire justice process to secure the outcome you need upon criminal conviction.

Our lawyers specialise in high profile cases and are used to dealing with media queries from journalists who can come knocking at a distressing time. We will remove all the hassle from you and take care of that kind of intrusion into your private family life.

We promise to fight for you to ensure that financial compensation, rehabilitation and support packages are arranged swiftly for your family following a serious crime.

Personal service for your family

The sensitive nature of these kinds of cases means we prioritise your comfort at a difficult time.

This includes visiting you personally to discuss the crime. We work closely with police liaison officers, barristers and statutory authorities to ensure your interests are best served, during and after the police investigation.

Truth and justice

Our team secures financial compensation for families but we understand

that truth and justice are often a higher priority.

If you or your family were financially dependent on a family member who has been unlawfully killed it is essential that you instruct a lawyer who you can trust and who is experienced in the relevant financial procedures.

Getting justice

We manage the process of dealing with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) which is a public body established to provide recompense for victims. Depending on the circumstances of the crime, there may also be legal options to pursue third parties for the human and financial costs associated with being a victim.

Loss of earnings, mental health suffering and physical alterations to your home following a life-changing injury will all be assessed and managed by our expert lawyers.

Our team is vastly experienced in dealing with criminal cases and the professionals and authorities involved in the investigation.

Accurately calculating the lifetime cost of recovery is essential. Our team gives you and your family the assurance and stability you need for the rest of your life.

If you and your family are the victims of a serious crime, speak to our expert team today. We are also happy to take over an ongoing claim if you are unhappy with your current solicitors and we can offer a free review of your case.
