criminal-solicitor-middlesbroughSexual Offences Middlesbrough - Paul J Watson Solicitors

Being accused of sexual offences can be distressing and frightening, particularly as the potential sentence for such offences can be lengthy.  You need an experienced solicitor who is has successfully defended sex offence cases on multiple occasions, and offered mitigation where possible to reduce the sentence on guilty cases.

In Sexual Offences cases, historical sex offences, rape, or sexual assault, it is usually one person's word against another's.  In indecent images cases, expert examination of your computer or mobile phone will be needed.  You need expert advice at the earliest opportunity to make sure that your defence can be supported and put across clearly and effectively.

 Recommended Solicitors for sexual cases - Genuine client review 

I’d like to thank Paul Watson and his team for their unswerving support and dedication in securing the release of my brother from prison. My brother had some allegations of sexual misconduct made against him, this resulted in him being convicted, after two trials, and being sent to prison despite his continual denying of the offences. Mr Watson’s team continued to support my brother through an appeal which was successful and resulted in the conviction being overturned. The professionalism shown by the team has been outstanding and their knowledge application of the law was second to none.
