Defending False Allegations

About Us Image

An information hub for those involved in the criminal justice system for the first time who want to know more.

“If you’ve been falsely or wrongly accused of a crime it can have a devastating impact on you, your personal relationships or professional reputation. I decided to set up this website with the aim of providing information to make what can often be a daunting process to navigate more manageable. It’s aimed at answering those initial questions I’m often asked as a solicitor who specialises in criminal law. This site cannot provide information tailored to specific cases, however it can help you start to understand the process so you can find your way through it.”
