We provide professional legal advice, information and representation for a range of motoring offences including careless driving, dangerous driving, speeding, speeding disqualification and drink driving (DIC).

Proceeds of Crime Act and Money Laundering Offences

Being accused of a money laundering offence or infringement is serious and if you or your business are facing prosecution or investigation you need experts who can provide steadfast legal advice.  We act for individuals and businesses who find themselves caught up in money laundering investigations, whether as witnesses or suspects.
