criminal-solicitor-middlesbrough RSPCA Defence Criminal Solicitors Middlesbrough 

Paul Watson is a leading RSPCA Defence specialist, who has successfully defended many RSPCA prosecutions – a particularly notable case being RSPCA v Nadian, reported nationally in The Times.

A specialist area of law, defending an RSPCA case requires an experienced Solicitor with a proven success rate. For many, an animal is a much loved family pet and the possibility of having their animal taken away is very distressing.

If you need help in defending an RSPCA prosecution, you should seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity to make sure you can protect your rights.

Even if you are guilty of causing unnecessary suffering or similar RSPCA based offences, there could be mitigating factors that you could put forward to reduce any sentence, for example;-

  • Your previous character;
  • Matters particular to you, such as illness, disability, family difficulties.

We will assist you in putting forward mitigating factors in your own case.
