We are specialists in this area. Whatever the allegations you’re facing, we can help.
Serious sexual offence cases are highly-charged, emotional and stressful for you and your family members in particular. Perhaps the Police have turned up at your home, unannounced, leaving you to hand over your phone, your laptop and other devices while your family watches. This is traumatic for everyone.
You might be worried about how your case will be handled and whether you can avoid the glare of publicity. You might be worried about your work, your employer or your career. We recognise this and we do what we can to minimise the impact of allegations on your family and your professional life.
When we take up your case, we’ll make sure you fully understand what is happening, we’ll take you through the process step by step and help you prepare for Court. We’ll get to work right away and draw on our years of experience to build your case and identify the options available to you. So, by the time of your Police interview, you’re clear on how we’ll defend your case. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
Sexual offence cases almost always involve ‘ancillary orders’ known as Sexual Harm Prevention Orders (SHPOs). Without the right sort of tailored input from us, you could be left with an SHPO which could have restrictive, unmanageable implications for you, your job and your livelihood for up to five years.
Did you know some SHPOs, if not challenged, could mean that all your work devices, as well as personal ones, could be subject to the order? Or that internet usage for your whole family would be monitored? This has stigmatising implications for your family possibly, even your workplace and colleagues.
Our team is expert at negotiating and drawing up SHPOs that are workable for all involved.
So, whatever the allegation you’re facing and however you might be feeling, get in touch with us. We deal with all sexual offence cases and you can talk openly with us. We deal with cases relating to indecent image possession and distribution, sexual assault, indecent exposure, rape, abuse. We are experts at defending these cases. We’ll represent you sensitively and look to secure the best possible outcome for you.
In cases like these, our clients often describe a feeling that ‘their world has come crashing down’. We’ll help you to pick up the pieces and move on.

Your conduct and commitment to myself and my case was amazing. I found it very easy to discuss with you and found you very understanding.
I could not be happier with the service and the friendly attitude I received. Thank you. After contacting a number of solicitors and none answering my calls, O’Garra answered.
