No one is more experienced

We are a specialist team of lawyers based in Berkshire serving adults who have experienced sexual abuse by clergy, teachers, relatives, partners and others in a position of trust. We believe that representing a survivor of sexual abuse is much more than a legal mission; it's a measurement of our humanity. We use our litigation experience and skills to work for justice for those who have been harmed by trusted individuals and institutions. If you are a survivor of sexual abuse call us today for a free and confidential discussion.

AO Advocates Senior Advisor and Counsel, Jeff Anderson, has more than 30 years of experience in the United States obtaining civil justice for thousands of victims of clergy sex abuse.  He has earned the reputation of being one of the first litigators in the world in this area. His vast experience is combined with the UK and international legal expertise of our lawyers Ann Olivarius,  Jef McAllister, Georgina Calvert-Lee, Julie Taberer and their team, who have won landmark cases throughout Britain that have extended protection and given justice to those who have been harmed.

Client Testimonials

"I really don't think my case would have been successful had you not been working on it. Thank you for listening properly to what I was trying to say, and then interpreting coherently for others to understand."

"Having to go into great detail about unsavoury things from my past that I would prefer to forget was made much easier by your very calm and understanding nature. You were able to put me at ease enough to open up about these things, which I have kept buried for years."

"You and the team there, have done a great job and I'm very pleased I chose to approach AO Advocates.  It's been a pleasure (as much as that's possible under the circumstances!) working with you and getting to know you, and you've handled things with great sensitivity and humanity, for which I'm very grateful, and without which this all might not have been possible, so thank you."
