We have a great deal of experience in dealing with the whole range of sexual offences and do our utmost to make it as easy for you as possible.
The majority of our clients who find themselves charged with sexual offences have never been in trouble before and are therefore coming to us at a very difficult and challenging time of their life. We understand the pressure and stigma for those accused of sexual offences and the impact such allegations can have on their families. We pride ourselves on our approachable and sympathetic manner and promise to handle your case with the utmost sensitivity and confidence.
There is a huge range of sexual offences from rape and sexual assault to the possession of indecent images on a computer and the more recent offence of revenge porn created by the Criminal Justice & Courts Act 2015. Recent years have seen a steep rise in allegations of historical sexual offences which can be problematic to investigate and defend given the passage of time. All sexual offences are treated very seriously and carry a real risk of a prison sentence. We can also assist clients with the complex appeal process to be removed from the Sex Offenders Register.
In many cases it is simply a matter of the complainant’s word against the defendant with no corroborative evidence. Sometimes the case is a straightforward dispute over facts but often there is expert evidence such as forensic evidence or computer analysis that needs to be challenged. We will always ensure the best expert input in defending your case and, if your case is one that is sent to the crown court, we always instruct barristers with particular expertise and experience in this area of law.

I know that you are all just doing your job, however you have given me great support through this difficult time and it’s great to feel that you’re in my corner
We were both completely happy and satisfied with the outcome. We cannot have hoped for a better outcome despite the circumstances and the potential outcome. We cannot thank Ciaran and Wheldon Law enough.
Excellent, professional service throughout. Would use Wheldon Law solicitors in the future if required. Would also recommend to family and friends.
I cannot thank you enough. You have all been amazing. Brilliant service.
I would definitely advise others of the excellent service that I received and would recommend your law firm – thank you.
Hopefully I will not need the services of a solicitor again but if I do I would not hesitate to contact your company.
I’ve never needed a solicitor before so was unsure as to what to expect. Tina put me as much at ease as possible and was very friendly and honest with what she told me. Thank you so much!
I found the advice and service provided very friendly and comforting at a time of extreme distress and all matters were dealt with very discreetly and professionally.
Gareth did a great job.
Very happy with the result and I know this is down to Wheldon Law, thus very happy with the service. Thank you.
