Charged with sexual assault?

The police are asking questions about events that took place a long time ago?

In the last few years, sex-related crimes have been subject to great hype in the public eye as well as in the media. Our team keeps abreast of the latest developments in this domain of law and can provide educated and sound advice before you meet with the police.

When responding to a criminal charge of a sexual nature, is it of outmost importance your fundamental rights are exercised with diligence and foresight. Our lawyers make sure these rights are effectively being asserted and defended throughout the whole judicial process.

Getting ready

Here is how to effectively prepare for the first meeting with a lawyer. It is a first step in taking charge of your defence.

1Write down every detail that seems important soon after your arrest:

  • Day of the week, date, time of events;
  • Where they took place;
  • Witness names and contact information, if any;
  • The context leading up to the charge.

2Gather all documents the police handed out upon your arrest. Read the terms carefully and make sure to follow them. It is important to remember that if you do not appear in court on the day you are supposed to, and if no lawyer is there to represent your behalf, the Court will issue a warrant for your arrest.
