Benefit Fraud Solicitors
Our experienced solicitors understand that often people who are being investigated for benefit fraud are having their first experience of the Criminal Justice System. We appreciate that his can cause untold stress, fear and a feeling of helplessness. We are there to provide quality legal advice and reassurance regarding the whole process.
We pride ourselves on client care and understanding the particular problems each case represents. In all cases we will see whether the decisions regarding entitlement to benefit and overpayment are lawful whilst also addressing the criminal law aspects of the case. If these processes are not followed correctly then the prosecution, in itself, may not reach the required standard to be presented to the Court

We find that the initial advice helps clients understand their situation better and helps reduce the stress and anxiety they may be feeling about the present situation.
