We have assisted our clients through many difficult police interrogations.

Police interrogations are almost always extremely stressful and painful experiences. In your case, it may or may not be advisable to meet with the police–even if you are innocent, the way something looks may be enough to get you in trouble–this is something that we carefully consider on your behalf because this decision can have a huge impact on the ultimate outcome your case.

Have you been arrested for a Sex Crime? What can you do to defend yourself?
Many people incorrectly believe forensic science is beyond challenge, but as experienced defense lawyers know, science is subject to error, both human error and error from the methods used by investigators.
Just the arrest for a sexual offense can drastically impact your life (even if you are ultimately found not guilty), so do not hesitate to contact us immediately if you are under investigation.
Not every sex crime case come down to science: sometimes the biggest challenge is a key witness, or maybe a sympathetic (but lying) victim, or maybe it is one of the many complex social relationships or situations regarding age of consent. In any case, digital forensic evidence, science and the complex nature of human relationships all play an important role in crafting your defense.
