We are there to defend our client and priority is focused to obtaining the best possible outcome and limiting any damage to the reputation of our client.

Suspects/Defendants

Our Serious Crime Solicitors specialise in representing those accused of the following allegations:

  • Historic sexual abuse
  • Child abuse
  • Making/possession of indecent images of children
  • Publication of private images/movies (so called “Revenge Porn”)
  • Rape and sexual/indecent assault
  • Malicious Comminucation
  • Sexual Offences Prevention Orders (SOPOs), Sexual Risk Orders (SROs), Sexual Harm Prevention Orders (SHPOs) and other issues relating to the Sex Offenders Register.

Involvement with a specialist solicitor at an early stage in proceedings can frequently lead to a client avoiding charge. In circumstances where matters do progress, we have the resources and contacts necessary to carry out extensive investigations in order for us to build the best defence case possible.

Witnesses/Victims

Our criminal law solicitors have significant experience of criminal procedure which enables us to provide guidance and support for victims & witnesses in sexual offences cases.

We also provide advice and assistance in relation to online sexual offences including protecting those who are the victims of sexual blackmail (“Sextortion”) and the malicious publishing and posting of images online (“Revenge Porn”). We also advise on the remit and enforce-ability of court orders and notifications.
