GBH and Assault

Assaults often last just a moment and have life-long effects on those involved. Many ordinary people can find themselves investigated for an assault. If you’ve been accused of an assault we understand the stress this may have on your life and we endeavour to deal with your case with sensitivity and diligence.

Our team of expert solicitors frequently represent clients charged with the entire spectrum of assaults, from Common Assault to Grievous Bodily Harm. Common Assault can involve someone simply causing another to apprehend unlawful force, without using any actual force on them; and ultimately up to inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent.

Our team regularly represent people in the police station who are accused of assaults. If appropriate, we can help facilitate a voluntary interview under caution. Our in-house higher court advocate department means that we can represent an individual throughout their case. If a case concerns a niche area of law or issue, we can instruct an expert or specialist Counsel, with whom we have had a close professional relationship for many years.
