Our criminal barristers specialise in cases involving all types of sexual offences.
We act for adults, young people and children accused of sex offences.

Areas of Criminal Law
Given the highly sensitive and often disturbing nature of cases involving sexual offences, we work very closely with both the client and their solicitors, remaining on hand to guide our clients through each stage from pre-charge advice and police interview to court hearing and, if necessary, appeal.
