Violent Offences

An assault is the use of unlawful force against another. There need not actually be contact to be guilty of an assault in its most basic form. The law governing assault is complex and having an experienced team of solicitors on your side is crucial. There are many defences available to an individual accused of an assault, the most common being self defence.

The most common types of assault offences prosecuted are

  • Common Assault
  • Actual Bodily Harm
  • Grievous Bodily Harm
  • Wounding
  • Grievous Bodily Harm with Intent
  • Wounding with Intent
  • Attempted Murder
  • Murder

If you have been contacted by the police for an interview or have already been interviewed by the police we recommend you contact us for advice and representation at a police station, whilst on bail or at court.

Often when the police investigate an offence of assault they themselves do not understand the types of assault definition and often investigate the wrong type of assault offence. The whole investigation and court process can be an extremely frightening experience for an individual. A strong team of solicitors on your side is not only essential for sound legal advice but also for peace of mind.

We recommend expert legal advice be obtained immediately in relation to any allegation of assault, whether it is considered a minor offence or the most serious type. The court has a wide range of powers when dealing with assault cases and it is vital you have an expert solicitor on your side.
