Expert Criminal Defence Solicitors for Theft, Burglary and Robbery Offences
Slades & Parsons Solicitors have extensive experience in defending people charged with property offences, trespassing, theft and deception-related charges. These range from minor shop-thefts and possessing suspected proceeds of crime to large-scale social security frauds, aggravated burglaries and armed robberies.
We will provide careful and detailed advice at any stage if you are facing these kinds of charges. If police suspect that you have been involved in a property-related offence, it is important that you receive professional legal advice before they interview you. We are available 24 hours a day to answer your call. Without legal advice, you leave yourself open to unintentionally giving the police evidence against yourself.
A record of interview is important. This is because there are often issues of identification and intention in these offences. Just because someone is in possession of goods that are stolen, it does not mean that police can prove all the charges they may lay (shop-theft or burglary, for example). Burglary involves trespassing on a property with an intention to steal. If police find in your possession items from a burglary, it does not automatically follow that they can prove you committed the burglary.
