Internet Crime

Internet crime is one of the fastest growing areas of criminal law.

We're Here to Help

The use of the Internet has been subject to increasing scrutiny by the law, covering both the type of material distributed and accessed via the Internet, and the use of social media sites. These offices are treated very seriously and can lead to lengthy prison sentences in certain circumstances. I have extensive experience in this developing area of the law and I am fully conversant with the statutory guidelines and recent case law and sentencing guidelines being developed. It is increasingly common to see prosecutions arising from the use of social media sites in relation to cyber bullying and online threats made via social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter. I have the legal expertise and technical knowledge necessary to represent clients in relation to Internet crime.


The answer requires legal analysis and is often misunderstood. I will provide you with a suitable appraisal and advise on the prospects of success to ensure that you can make suitably informed decisions.

Expert advice and legal assistance is required immediately upon detention for any offence and preferably before any police interview is conducted as admissions made during such an interview can significantly affect any possible defence.

I am registered to provide criminal legal assistance by the Scottish Legal Aid Board and can provide advice on  eligibility for legal aid and alternative payment arrangements. Full disclosure of fee charging is provided.

It may be possible for me to attend on your behalf or to make suitable arrangements. I can discuss this with you in greater detail depending on the circumstances.
