Being wrongly convicted of a crime or had a false accusation made against you is a harrowing and stressful time, and requires an objective and positive mind to see that you do not have to fight the allegations alone. You can call on us to help you prove your innocence.
SGH & Associates defence experts are a team of highly motivated private detectives who are specialists in all aspects of criminal and civil investigations, in particular assisting people who have been wrongly convicted or accused of a crime they have not committed.
