94% SUCCESS RATE FOR 2014 (Period between Dec ’13- Dec ’14)

Mags and Crown Court trials- 88% WIN RATE

Our team at Rustem Guardian understand that being falsely accused of a sexual offence, including an allegation of rape, is a most distressing time for you and your family. We understand the pressure and stigma for those accused of such offences and the impact it can have on families and so we provide a sympathetic approach to all those involved and we are discrete and sensitive when advising our clients.

Our first priority when helping clients in custody is to consider all avenues to secure their release as soon as possible in the circumstances. We recognise the importance of the support from family and friends. We put the family at the core of the defence team to listen to their views that may help your Defence. This will be subject to the rules of confidentiality and be dictated by the will of our client. In many cases we are appointed by the family or friends of clients.

Our solicitors are experienced in defending the widest range of sexual offences which is a complex area of law involving challenging issues. You are in a vulnerable position when falsely accused of a crime of sexual offence and therefore you will need the best legal advice and representation as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected.

We have a wealth of experience in fiercely protecting a client’s reputation and will seek to challenge the case at an early stage with the aim to stop proceedings wherever possible. The firm’s team of solicitors have a formidable reputation for representing clients at the early stage of police questioning, which results in a high percentage of clients being released from further investigation and charge. Of all those clients we represent at the police station stage – 45% are NFA’d and no longer investigated.

Our team provide support and critical legal judgement: Timur Rustem will build the team around your requirements to ensure you have the most experienced case management team. Mr Rustem leads a small but dedicated team including subject-matter lawyers, senior barristers, as well as links to our long term trusted enquiry agents; available for discrete investigations on your behalf.

At Rustem Guardian we are able to signpost and refer you to other professionals who can advise where necessary. We also understand that media intrusion can often result in such allegations and we offer advice on how to deal with this.

We take conduct of cases throughout the country and if necessary will travel abroad to obtain evidence to support your defence. We often take instructions from clients who are in custody and don’t allow this to effect the preparation for a trial or appeal. We are very proud of our 88% success rate at trial (period Dec 13 – Dec 14).
