Benefit Fraud

Benefit Fraud

If you are suspected of being dishonest about your benefit claim you could be called in by the agency for an interview. This could potentially be serious.

Being accused of benefit fraud can be a frightening and stressful experience. If you have been accused or charged with benefit fraud, contact us now to speak to one of our highly experienced benefit fraud solicitors.

When interviewed it will be under Caution, just as if you were being interviewed by the Police. Benefit Fraud is a criminal offence. If it is decided, and sometimes this is many months after the interview, that you are too be prosecuted, you will have to go to Court.

You need legal advice at the interview. If you are on benefits you are likely to qualify for Legal Aid. Contact us if you are called in for an interview. We can change the date of the interview to a convenient time for all concerned. You need to be advised of your rights.

Remember, taking legal advice does not make you look guilty.

Here at Norrie Waite & Slater we have the expertise and experience to help you through your case and we can provide you with the best representation possible. We will deal with you sympathetically and professionally at all times.
