Sexual Offences

Sexual offences are taken very seriously by the courts.  If you are convicted or found guilty, they can in some circumstances, have long lasting impacts on your family and your future, including criminal convictions, registration suspensions, offender reporting obligations and even sentences of imprisonment.

Being charged with a sexual offence and having to face court can be confronting and leave you with questions about the charges, your options, the system, the process, defences and the likely outcome. We pride ourselves on building trusting relationships with our clients, and always take the time to offer a plain English and non-judgemental approach to each matter. Our criminal lawyers regularly appear throughout Brisbane CBD, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast courts, so you can feel comfortable and confident with your solicitors.
