Need a specialist sexual offence defence lawyer in the UK? My colleague Stuart Sutton can help you - please contact him on 0808 302 5003. More information about Stuart is below:-

Stuart has an outstanding record of defending clients charged with sexual offences, with more than 90% of the clients he has defended since November 2000, having been found not guilty. The quality of the documents he has produced for the court, in particular, Defence Statements, have been commented upon by Judges and Prosecutors alike. Indeed, there have been occasions when, having produced the Defence Statement, the prosecution has offered no evidence against Stuart's client shortly afterwards.

Stuarts work ethic is based on client care. He endeavours to make himself available to clients at all times, no matter where he may be. Stuart has acted for clients who have paid privately for representation or who have the backing of Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI).

Stuart, together with his colleagues in the Serious Crime Department can assist you at all stages from an interview with the police to the Crown Court Trial. Similarly, as regards Fitness to Practise (FTP) proceedings, Stuart has represented clients before the GMC, HCPC, GOsC, GCC, NMC and others. He also advises clients (again, sometimes LEI funded) who require assistance in making representations to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly ISA) when it is suggested that their name be placed on the Barring List, barring them from working with children and/or vulnerable persons.
