We appear in all Criminal Matters

Osborne Butler specialises in law related to two main areas – Criminal Law and Traffic and Licensing Law. The law and penalties related to these offences change very quickly. Working in these specific areas allows us to apply the most current laws to your case. We also work in areas that are often complimentary. For example, traffic accidents can give rise to criminal charges such as dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. Similarly, work licence applications can be critical in maintaining employment. In these areas, we offer a wide range of solutions to your problems – we can advise you on your prospects of applying for a work licence or a special hardship order or protecting your interests for a criminal matter in a court of law.

When deciding how to deal with a charge you need quality advice from the outset. Our criminal lawyers understand that criminal law issues can arise at any time of the day or night.
