Criminal Defence and Road Traffic Law
Walker & Sharpe have for many years represented the interests of clients charged with criminal offences.
In 1998, the firm expanded its practice in this area when local solicitor, David Finnie, joined. His experience as a court practitioner, specialising as a criminal defence lawyer, now exceeds twenty years.
The nature and quality of the service which David provides has resulted in a substantial expansion of this field of practice for the firm.
