Criminal Damage and Arson Solicitors
Often allegations of criminal damage are met with Defendants taking the view that they must be guilty, simply because property was damaged. This is often not the case, given that criminal damage requires a certain level of intention, plus the absence of any lawful authority. Examples of criminal damage can range from matters of simplicity such as scratching a car to matters concerning serious fires referred to as Arson.
We have a great deal of experience in handling such matters, whether a Defendant is simply suggesting that they are guilty, and actually are in law, or indeed if they have defences that apply.
As in all cases we approach these cases methodically and try to offer you reassurance along the way.
