    Client testimonial about Emma Silburn & Hannah Mostoufi - Crime

    It's really only in hindsight that I fully appreciate the support Amy gave me through the whole rather protracted business. Unsurprisingly perhaps, there were times when feelings of shame, regret, of having let everyone down, in particular my family, turned towards self-loathing. But Amy, by just sitting having a chat while we were waiting around, helped me hang on to some semblance of a positive sense of who I am. I am immensely grateful to her.

    Client testimonial about Brian Hegarty - Crime

    The case spanned close to 3 years and in parts becoming quite complex, requiring specialist professionals in certain fields. Throughout this period I found David Gray's staff to be professional, efficient and was kept informed at every stage of my case.This together with the experienced barristers they have at their disposal, saw my case conclude in a positive result. I have no problem in recommending David Gray solicitors and should I need legal representation in the future would use them again.

    Client testimonial about Brian Hegarty - Crime

    I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to Hannah for all her help and support in this matter.  As an individual whom has never had any need for any legal advice or similar, Hannah dealt with my situation as well as I could have ever hoped.  She took the time to listen, to not judge and to offer sage advice in return.  When something was promised to be done, it was not only done, but it was completed within the agreed time and communicated in a clear and concise matter. As much as I would never wish to need legal advice again, my first port of call would be Hannah and if not, one of her colleagues at David Gray Solicitors.

    Client testimonial about Hannah Mostoufi - Crime

Proceeds of Crime Applications, freezing injunctions and Restraint Orders are used to seize assets which are suspected to be the proceeds of crime. Our specialist solicitors can help at every stage of any investigation and proceedings.

An increasing feature of criminal investigations is the ability of prosecuting authorities to seize, restrain or freeze assets that they say are the proceeds of crime. This can be the first sign  that you are suspected of a criminal offence.

Often the process is invoked following a criminal conviction.  Sometimes however this can happen very early in an investigation.  At times, the process can operate independently from the criminal law and authorities can use their civil law powers to try to restrain assets even without a criminal prosecution or conviction.

Our specialist team in Newcastle upon Tyne or South Shields is here to help and will advise and guide you through the process.
