Criminal Law

Criminal charges are usually brought about in one of two ways. The first is that the individual is arrested and then subsequently charged with an offence(s) at the police station or the less common way is that a person is reported for an offence and is then subsequently summonsed to attend court. This method is more common with motoring offences such as speeding, driving without due care attention, etc.

The spectrum of criminal offences is vast.  In order to assist we have listed in their own categories the most common of offences on the left, which we hope will assist.

Please remember that because the offence you have been charged with is not listed on the left, it does not mean that we do not deal with these types of offences. For over 20 years McKenzies have dealt with the whole spectrum of criminal cases and so we can help.

It is also important to note that at McKenzies, our criminal department is the largest and that all solicitors in the department are exclusively criminal defence experts. Within the criminal defence department we have sections that specialize in fraud, general crime, serious and organized crime and motoring law. Our structure is tailor made to suite our clients' needs in every respect.
