I contacted Kangs Solicitors having been arrested for an allegation of rape.
I was in complete shock at what had happened as I had been falsely accused and I needed immediate experienced legal support.
Upon meeting the senior partner of Kangs Solicitors, Hamraj Kang, I felt that they immediately understood my situation due to their considerable experience dealing with such cases.
I was very comfortable with the way they sympathetically explained how they could assist me and what I would need to do with their help to prepare my case.
My case was prepared to an exceptionally high standard.
Kangs selected the perfect barrister for my situation in order to fight my case.
