Legal Aid funding for Criminal Defence Investigations

If you have been charged with less serious criminal offences (where the possible sentencing is less than 10 years imprisonment) and you are eligible for legal aid, you are likely to be assigned a lawyer by Legal Aid Services. This lawyer may be an independent barrister or one of the lawyers in the Public Defence Service.

Your lawyer may be unaware that legal aid funding may be applied for to cover investigative services which may be beneficial in your case.

Call us on 0800 555 795 to discuss how we may be able to assist you, or have your lawyer contact us directly.

The units come fully charged in a sealed weathertight case with strong neodymium magnets to affix the unit firmly underneath a vehicle. 

A fully charged unit should last 5-8 days depending on how often the subject vehicle is driven. 

However, there are some caveats regarding this hiring service:

  1. You must have a claim of right to the vehicle - either it is owned by you, your business, or is considered joint relationship property.
  2. You will provide us the full details of the vehicle being tracked. 
  3. We will provide a daily written report summarising the movements of the vehicle and any stops. We will not provide real-time information with this service unless you are also engaging our surveillance services.

Criminal Defence Investigations

We have recently concluded an investigation on behalf of a defendant facing two serious criminal charges, with a custodial sentence of up to 10- and 7-years respectively.  

As a result of our enquiries, we were able to provide information to his lawyer that, when presented to the prosecution, resulted in both charges being dropped.

The investigation was entirely funded through an application for legal aid.  

If you, or someone you know, is facing criminal charges - please have your lawyer contact us, or you can call us directly to discuss as to how we might be of assistance.
