R v Mr E (Birmingham)
Mr E gave extra-curricular teaching assistance and ran a boy’s club. Accused by many and various boys of sexual wrongdoing. Main complainant’s case withdrawn before trial and after production of a Defence Statement. Mr E unanimously acquitted by a jury in relation to all other counts.
R v Mr K (Warwick)
Accused of sexual misfeasance with foster child. Police failed to obtain CCTV footage of Mr K’s journeys to and from work, which could have proved when he was at work and when he was not, and also failed to obtain information from his employer as to clocking in and out times. Unanimously acquitted by a jury.
R v Mr R (Stoke)
Mr R accused by two complainants. One of rape (prosecution withdrew case following complainant giving no evidence) and one of indecent assault. Trial stopped at this stage and re-trial in relation to the sexual assault yet to be concluded.
"Stuart was thorough, professional and honest throughout the process. He didn't give us false hope yet we felt reassured by his extensive experience in this area and appreciated that he was always responsive and available to us at all hours."
"What I can I possibly say now in any sense of some adequate words to you two - Stuart and Mark?
Yes, Stuart – that huge amount of work and preparation we, as a team had to do – mind boggling, but so very necessary. The formula is good. It works.
Mark, Stuart – it isn’t just me thanking you both from the bottom of my heart. It is every member of my lovely family."
"I approached Stuart after I had been arrested and interviewed in relation to sexual allegations. From the outset he exuded a confidence and a familiarity with the situation. He knew exactly what was going to happen over the coming months.
When we met he was friendly yet professional and realistic. He was painstaking in ensuring he had taken detailed instructions from me, and wasted no time commencing the process of speaking to others and gathering evidence to build our case. He works proactively and relentlessly.
It is amazing just how accessible Stuart is. He seems to work all hours and makes himself eminently available to his clients. Even if he is busy, he gets back to you as soon as he can.
Stuart is a professional solicitor not a therapist, but I think he knows that part of his job is to keep the client’s head up, and he does it very well. It helps that he can make anybody laugh, even in the darkest hours. He has a jovial and relaxed manner, but beneath it he is sharp and determined to get the right outcome for his client.
In the end, working together with Counsel, we secured a judgement of “no case to answer” resulting in an automatic “not guilty” verdict. I am convinced that Stuart’s work helped us to get this result rather than having to go all the way to a jury decision. The crucial advantage seemed to me to be that we had prepared in painstaking detail and knew the case inside out; this is what Stuart is a master of.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Stuart as a solicitor."
