Criminal Damage

Criminal damage can range from breaking an item that can easily be repaired or replaced to the burning down or a large building .. and the damage doesn’t even have to be permanent.

The court will take into account any aggravating elements such as whether the damage was part of a burglary, the value of the damage, or whether a group of people were involved or if there is a racial or religious feature to the offence.

If you have been accused of criminal damage, we can help you.  You may need forensic investigations, statements from witnesses or for us to help you put forward your side of the story if the damage was accidental.
