Harassment and Other Familial Allegations

Our criminal law team includes specialist police station advisers.  Our reputation is based on over 75 years of providing the highest quality advice and representation to our clients: protecting their rights and interests, holding the police to account, and striving to get the best result.

Charges relating to domestic abuse or harassment can bring with them a particular kind of stigma, whether they concern allegations of physical violence against an adult or a child.  

From allegations dealing with the threat of violence or the ever-changing landscape of stalking and harassment to offences, such as controlling or coercive behaviour and revenge porn, our internationally recognised team is highly experienced in representing clients accused of offences within family relationships.  Our involvement is focussed on dealing with matters discreetly, sensitively and quickly. We have a track record of avoiding the need for an arrest and guiding you towards the best possible outcome so that wherever possible charges are avoided. 

It is commonly believed that it is up to the complainant to bring a charge of domestic abuse and that a complainant can change his or her mind about whether the charges proceed.  The reality is that charges of domestic abuse are taken as seriously as any other form of assault and the police may proceed with the charges even where the complainant attempts to withdraw.

We understand the complexities surrounding allegations made in personal relationships and the emotional turmoil they bring.  We ensure we obtain as much information as possible about the investigation in advance.  We will explain the process to you and advise you on the best options available to you. 

We will help you to give the best account of yourself, and ensure that the stress and emotion that usually accompany these allegations does not prevent you from achieving the correct outcome. 

We provide advice, assistance and representation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so you can call on us whenever the need arises.  

We harness the skills and expertise of colleagues in our Family team to identify and challenge those cases where there may be an ulterior motive for an allegation.  We work closely with our Reputation Management team to prevent unwarranted publication of personal or damaging material that is often associated with these allegations.
