At FM Kelly and Company we have a wealth of experience in dealing with criminal work and advising on every type of criminal prosecution and in-court representation. The firm is experienced in all aspects of criminal law including road traffic prosecutions such as section 49 (excess alcohol), and dangerous driving.
For any person who encounters the Gardai in circumstances that may result in a possible criminal charge or an appearance in Court, early legal advice is essential.
Even where the case concerns a minor Road Traffic accident, Public Order or Misuse of Drugs infringement, the long-term implications of the matter could be extremely serious. Quite clearly, the more serious the allegation, the more urgent the need for advice.
This involves preliminary advice in all types of cases, minor or major, very urgently if appropriate and includes advising persons who are in Garda custody, on a 24 hour a day basis. Should an emergency arise requiring an attendance at a police station out of hours, we can provide this facility.
We will quickly assess the seriousness of the situation, help the client plan a strategy to deal with the problem, and if necessary, liaise with the State authorities.
Fiona Kelly is on the criminal legal aid panel and also acts for private clients in the practice of criminal defence litigation.
