RAPE SOLICITORS


Rape is an awful accusation, but that does not mean it happened

An allegation of rape can come as a huge shock. Just one person’s accusation can have a terrible effect on somebody’s personal and family life. The nerves and the worry can be almost unbearable. But you don’t have to feel helpless. Our specialist rape solicitors believe that you have a right to be considered innocent until proven guilty, even if the police or the CPS are acting as if the allegation is true.

72% of our clients win their cases

Our criminal solicitors fight to win our clients’ cases and the proof is our results. Where a client doesn’t admit the allegation we win at trial or get the case dropped beforehand in 72% of cases.*

We listen carefully

We listen to you and treat your situation as if we were in your shoes. We don’t hire staff unless they have this mindset. Every case is supervised by one of the firm’s directors.

We investigate thoroughly

We do our own thorough investigation and find the best way to present your case to the police, to the prosecutor, or finally to the jury. This means phone, letters, and aggressive advocacy on your behalf at every stage.

Our criminal solicitors never give up

We never give up, and we fight until we get the result. That can mean early mornings, late nights, and commitment to go the extra mile.

It is a mistake to assume that all criminal lawyers provide a similar service. Having a top law firm with a really good win rate on your side can make the difference between winning and losing. Don’t take the risk.

* 71% of clients’ cases resulted case being discontinued at investigation or court stage, or not guilty verdict after trial. Data from all criminal clients between  02.2017 and 08.2019 - excludes cases where the client admitted the offence and chose to plead guilty.

See results we have achieved for people accused of sexual offences with links to verified reviews:

  • Our client was accused of historic sexual assault and rape by his younger sister and another sibling. After pressure on the police and prosecution and pointing out both inconsistencies and a possible ulterior motive, the case was dropped at the police investigation stage.

  • Our client was accused of the rape of a teenage girl. He admitted to having sex with her after they met in a pub but denied rape. She had made very similar allegations against other men. Our rape solicitors applied to cross-examine her on her previous sexual history. Verdict: Not Guilty

  • Our client was a teenage boy accused of the rape of another boy at school. He denied the allegation. After detailed written representations to the CPS, the case was dropped without reaching court.

  • Our client was accused of carrying out sexual attacks against different complainants and making indecent images of children. Our investigations showed that the witnesses were professional thieves with a history of making sexual allegations against their victims. A not guilty verdict was ordered by the judge during the trial.
