EXPERT LEGAL ASSISTANCE FOR ALL SEXUAL OFFENCES 

 

 

It’s no secret that being investigated for, or charged with, a sexual offence is one of the most traumatic experiences a person can go through.

 

Forrest Williams understand this.  This is why we choose to defend people charged with these serious offences.

 

Case Study
R-v-Lane: vulnerable defendant charged with two counts of sexual assault.  Not guilty pleas entered on the basis that his intentions were not sexual, and Crown Court trial elected.  Complex case where our investigations led to the defendant being diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome.  Intense case preparation finally led to both charges being withdrawn three months before the anticipated trial date.

 

We are leading sexual offence solicitors used to turning away more cases than we accept. We are only willing to represent clients who we feel strongly about protecting and defending.

 

For this reason, we are proud to offer our expert knowledge and strong advocacy team to assist you.

 

We do not want to see a single person falsely convicted of an offence as devastating as these.

 

Let’s talk about why you need the best representation.

 

As soon as you are investigated for a sexual offence, your reputation, livelihood, personal relationships and future career are all at risk. We have seen people lose careers, marriages, standing in the community and even their lives because of the weight of charges like these.

 

It is vital that you speak to the experts as early as possible. You must not wait and risk making the situation worse.

 

With Forrest Williams on your side, you’re in control.

 

You can depend on us.

 

You will have a named case worker as your first point of contact and full consistency throughout your case. You will be represented at the hearings by one of our team of specialist barristers, with your case worker present throughout the hearings if requested.

 

What Our Clients Say…

 

“I am extremely satisfied. Professional and friendly, expert advice and a positive result. My barrister was perfect for me and the case and had obviously taken time to prep before the hearings.”

 

“I am so glad I made the right choice by placing my trust in you. I don’t mind sharing that I only cry when I am happy and there were tears streaming down my face as I walked away from Court. Thank you for making me cry!”

 

“I just want to say a big thank you to you guys for being there for me at this difficult time and to thank you for the excellent service and being so understanding and non-judgemental.”

 

“I felt I was well informed of all aspects of the case and both of my barristers were well informed and pleaded my case admirably.”

 

“I could not have got a better outcome. Worth every penny. A huge thank you.”

 

“Steve was brilliant, a really nice man, and speaking to Tracy was like talking to my mum, she’s a lovely lady.”

 

“I can’t thank you enough. It was my toughest time in my life and you helped me greatly.”

 

“I would unhesitatingly recommend Forrest Williams as exceptionally knowledgeable, skilled, genuinely caring team who are completely interested in getting the absolutely best results for their clients in any circumstances, however they may first appear.”

 

“You’ve been a great help. I appreciate that some of what we had to discuss was awkward and must have been difficult for you. Thank you for all your time and help. I really appreciate everything.”
