This has been a very harrowing experience for me and my family. There have been some very dark moments over the last 12 months or so but I have had to stay strong in order to fight these false allegations. I have been helped enormously by my solicitors Hamraj Kang and Frances Murray who have dealt with my matter with patience and great diligence. The support I received during the trial was fantastic and I would like to extend a special thank you to them.

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, and his colleague Frances Murray, 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.
Frances Murray prepared my case to an exceptionally high standard. She was with me all the way through the proceedings and nothing was too much trouble for her.
Kangs selected the perfect barrister for my situation in order to fight my case.
