CORONAVIRUS MEASURES- WE CAN STILL HELP YOU

The crime team at David Gray is fully operational and working from home to help and advise you. We are contactable by telephone, email and video conference. Please contact us on 0191 232 9547.

Please read our latest blog on the current situation within the Criminal Justice System.

The team are still attending police station interviews and attending court where necessary.


If you receive a letter from the Department of Works and Pensions or the city council to attend interview, under caution, regarding a suspected change in your circumstances you could be accused of benefit fraud.

It is very important that you have legal representation during this process.  Our specialist team, at our Newcastle upon Tyne and South Shields offices, can negotiate with investigators on your behalf to achieve as favourable result as possible.

In some instances of benefit fraud we can help you avoid court proceedings. The most important part of a benefit fraud investigation is the interview itself.  This forms very persuasive evidence and is the main reason it is very important that you receive legal advice prior to attending this interview.  These interviews are daunting and it is very reassuring to have someone present who knows the law and can assist through the process.  Contact our specialist team at our Newcastle or South Shields offices for help and advice if you are accused of benefit fraud.
