Rape Defence Solicitors

Perhaps the worst, and probably the most life-changing, offence a person can be accused of. The consequences of a conviction are dire, with a long prison sentence inevitable and bad consequences for reputation and family life. If you are facing this scary situation, you’ll need a lawyer you can trust.

Investigations can go on and on – even if they result in no charge – and you’ll need a lawyer you can talk to in confidence and about intimate matters, who you can build up a relationship with. We understand that you will have a lot of questions to ask and your lawyer at Hodge Jones and Allen will be there to answer them, from a depth of experience and great knowledge of sexual offence law.

Contact our team confidentially

Anyone charged with rape will need a lawyer who fights their corner vigorously, who listens to what their client says and acts on it. If you’ve been accused of a serious sexual offence we will:

  • Help you in your police interview and make sure you get your version across.
  • Examine the case in detail and look for inconsistencies in what prosecution witnesses say.
  • Challenge the prosecution forensic evidence, and get our own experts involved in the case where this is necessary.
  • Think strategically and choose just the right advocate for your case.
  • Help you prepare yourself so, if you give evidence, you’ll be confident and sure that you’re presenting yourself properly.

Rape cases are won and lost on defence evidence and we know the importance of gathering this as early and as comprehensively as possible. We are sometimes called in to act on appeal for people convicted of sexual offences where their lawyer hasn’t done this. We’ve learnt from the mistakes of others and won’t be making them on your case.
