With the arrival of warmer weather and the excitement of summer sporting events such as the UEFA European Championship (Euros), Pepperells Solicitors recognise the increased risk of alcohol-related abuse and are dedicated to providing support and legal guidance to those affected.


Understanding the Connection: Alcohol and Domestic Abuse

Unfortunately, this increase in consumption can lead to a surge in domestic abuse incidents. Studies have shown a strong correlation between excessive drinking and the prevalence of domestic violence, with alcohol often exacerbating existing tensions and triggering aggressive behaviour.
