Criminal law

At CMG Cunningham Dickey Solicitors Belfast and North Down, our criminal defence lawyers offer a discrete, sensitive and professional service to individuals and corporate employees who find themselves under investigation or prosecution for criminal offences from minor road traffic matters to more serious criminal offences such as serious fraud, VAT fraud, theft, violence, sexual offences, drugs or money laundering the proceeds of crime. Investigations are becoming more sophisticated, information gathering powers more draconian, and enquiries are multi-jurisdictional involving international extradition and mutual assistance requests.
Whether the offence is minor or serious and complex, national or international, our criminal defence lawyers understand that being at risk of investigation, under arrest or charged with an offence and facing prosecution is a stressful, worrying and confusing time. We aim to provide first class advice and representation, act as an interface with the police, investigators and prosecuting authorities, in order to defend our clients' best interests
