If you are charged with a sex offence you need advice from someone who is experienced in defending these charges and supporting you. Sexual offences vary considerably, not only in the nature of the allegations themselves but in the seriousness of the charges. We will listen, help and deliver.
Sexual offences always present a difficulty in the community. The community expects that the law will protect vulnerable people such as those underage and other victims of sexual matters. We are also currently experiencing a period where a number of historical offences have been charged.
