Stuart Sutton frequently works alongside highly-experienced defence barrister Mark Kelly on sexual offence cases. Their years of experience and profound knowledge of this area of law allows both Stuart and Mark to provide their clients with a robust and innovative defence service that is second to none.
Having been called to the bar in 1985, Mark has over 30 years’ experience in criminal and regulatory defence.
Mark represents clients in high profile cases who have been accused of sexual offences such as historic sexual abuse, sexual assault and rape. He regularly defends professionals – such as police officers, foster carers, diplomats and teachers – whom would suffer a tarnished reputation should they be convicted.
As a practising barrister, Mark is able to defend clients with charges at any level, appearing for cases in both Crown Court and before the Magistrates.
Over the years, Mark has developed his expertise in sexual offence cases to include a niche clientele - defending foster carers accused of sexually abusing children in their care. The implications of such charges are severe, causing the carer to be put at reputational risk. Instructing a defence lawyer who has both meticulous preparation skills and expert knowledge on the area, will give you the best chance of a favourable outcome, and hopefully allow you to get on with your life.
Mark’s tenacious, hands-on work ethic and highly strategic approach ensures his clients receive expert legal assistance from the outset.
