Grievous Bodily Harm

Our Criminal Solicitors have been defending Grievous Bodily Harm Charges for more than 30 years, having achieved significant and substantial acquittals. We take a very pro-active approach to defending our clients. We don't believe in a re-active attitude when there is so much at stake. 

How we defend Grievous Bodily Harm prosecutions

We understand that you are unlikely to have wondered out specifically looking for violence. We appreciate that the circumstances of life that are likely to have led you into the position of using violence are fundamentally important. We are experts in developing your defence and securing absolutely every piece of evidence that we consider useful to your defence. Not only are we masters are scrutinising the prosecution's case and any CCTV evidence they may have produced, we are skilful and knowledgeable enough to challenge the legality and admissibility of this evidence.

We will contest unlawfully obtained evidence, we will challenge the credibility of witnesses and we will make every foreseeable enquiry to gather any evidence which is useful to the defence case. Whether this means knocking on doors to find witnesses or it means gathering third party CCTV footage, our Criminal Solicitors will do what needs to be done for the furtherance of the case strategy.

If you are accused of causing a serious injury by recklessness (Section 20 Grievous Bodily Harm) or a serious injury caused intentionally to seriously harm another person (Section 8 Grievous Bodily Harm), our Criminal Solicitors will support you and stand by your side, guiding your every step of the way.

Since the case is likely to be heard in the Crown Court, we will engage a Barrister who specialises in defending Violent Crime, has a real passion to win and is committed to your case and achieving the best possible result.

Once we have reconstructed the events of the day, challenged illegal evidence and made investigations to collect defence evidence; we will put all the material together and work with you to devise the best strategy for the defence. We will guide you as to the Court process and prepare you for the day you are called into the witness stand to give evidence yourself. This is the point at which the case becomes the most vulnerable but active assistance from our Criminal Solicitors will leave you with the confidence to be prepared for this very daunting day.

Booking a free consultation with a Criminal Solicitor

In every case, the police will make an arrest and interview the accused person to document their account on an interview tape. This interview becomes vital evidence and the prosecution will rely on this to prove you to be a liar. It is therefore vital that you instruct Criminal Solicitors from the very beginning of the case. That you take informed decisions and follow expert advice to protect your best interests.
