We Can Help

The offence of Rape is one of the most serious sexual offences that you can be charged with.

The very word Rape carries a stigma, that can destroy ones career, relationships, and your life.

If you have been arrested for Rape it can come as a complete shock, and its imperative that from the very earliest communication with the police that you contact us.We understand that this can be a terrifying experience, however with years of knowledge and expertise dealing with rape cases, we will begin to work and formulate a defence immediately.

Its crucial when you first come in to contact with the police that you do not say anything which can be misinterpreted and used in evidence against you at a later date. Early intervention is a must, and often our successful clients are the ones who have instructed us to deal with their case at the Police station stage.

It may however not be possible to instruct us at this point, we can use our expertise at any point In the proceedings to formulate an effective defence.

Unfortunately years of underfunding have left the criminal justice system ineffective, you may be provided a Duty Solicitor, however this may not be in your best interests as they will certainly not be specialist in sexual offences.

There is a direct correlation with the fact that instructing a specialist sexual offences solicitor, will result in significantly improving the chances of you found not guilty.

Our only goal is to ensure we can return the not guilty verdict, whether that is in the shape of Police taking no further action, or you are being found not guilty at Court.

At the heart of most Rape cases is whether there is consent, and reasonable belief that there was consent. Reasonable belief is determined on the set of circumstances that presented themselves, and whether this is reasonable. The jury will decide on the question of reasonableness.

What Our Clients Say

“It was the worse time of my life. My nephew had made allegation against me. I contacted Parnell and Peel, and from the very first conversation with Abdul, I knew he was the one to help me. Parnell used many experts including psychological ones to show that my nephew was not telling the truth, old phone records were also used to provide me with a defence. I was relieved when the Prosecution dropped by Case. I will forever be grateful to the team at Parnell.”


“Thank You, Thank you. I believed my life had ended. I was falsely accused of Rape and I didn’t know where to turn to. I contacted many solicitors, until deciding upon Parnell. It’s the best decision I ever made. The Prosecution offered no evidence, during the Crown Court hearing.”


“Parnell and Peel are magnificent, not only are they excellent at their jobs, but they are humans. Abdul was truly amazing, as was the whole team. The thought of prison for something I did not do was truly terrifying. Abduls amazing eye for detail saved the day. The prosecution had noty followed the correct procedure, and the witnesses had lied on oath. I was found not guilty”


“Brilliant, absolutely amazing firm. I contacted Abdul, having spoken to other firms, although more expensive, you simply get what you pay for. Attentive, inquisitive, and fantastic in Court, both Abdul and John wo represented me during my trial were excellent. Found not guilty of historic allegations.”
