"I am writing to thank you for your assistance to my brother. I was incredibly worried about him, he was in such despair that I was terrified he would not survive the allegation made against him. You gave him the best advice and supported him through this time and I cannot thank you enough – without your help, I can honestly say that I don’t know whether he would still be here. Your communication with the police and him has been faultless and has, I’m sure, helped paint a clearer picture of the motivation behind the allegation made and drastically shortened the time needed to investigate and discard the case."
"Initially I was unsure as to whether I wanted a solicitor, but after a 10 minute conversation with Stuart I was fully convinced that I needed him. I then never regretted my decision.
Throughout the entire process, Stuart and the team acted with complete professionalism, were non-judgemental and had expert knowledge and experience. It helped to know that I had someone who knew what they were doing, in my corner.
I cannot recommend Stuart Sutton enough."
"I found Stuart through a search for a top solicitor following allegation of sexual assault and common assault. Stuart is highly knowledgeable of the law about each, the process, the likely timescale, the potential outcome and impacts. He provided his realistic opinion on the likely outcome which together with his Barrister's opinion enabled me to make decisions. Behind the scenes, Stuart dealt with the Crown which was a critical and strategic move by him which eased the process in court. This was a terribly worrying four months for me, but the reassurance of Stuart always being there, his straight forward 'no nonsense' approach to advising me and his human side knowing how the eventual charge of common assault was affecting me got me through this traumatic time. I recommend Stuart very highly."
“Whilst undergoing the terrible shock and despair of being falsely accused of a historic offence, my wife and I found Stuart by searching the internet and we must say it is the most important decision we have ever made to instruct Stuart as our Solicitor in this matter.
Right from the beginning Stuart has been so reassuring,absolutely professional and we have never seen anybody as hardworking as he has proved to be, and whatever time of day or night Stuart has been there for us.
Having absolutely no experience or understanding of police processes, court procedures or anything at all like this, Stuart has had to guide us every step of the way and he has produced and compiled a solid and logical defence strategy which proved to be totally successful.
We cannot thank Stuart enough for all of his efforts on our behalf. We are so pleased and grateful that right at the very beginning we found Stuart and decided to instruct him – he has been a lifeline and source of strength for us during what we can say has been the worst time of our lives.
We would positively and highly recommend Stuart.
