Our client, Mr. M was falsely accused of domestic violence and assault after his ex-partner filed charges. A thorough investigation revealed an unhappy partnership, and that our client was assaulted by the complainant and had merely defended himself before trying to retrieve his property and leave the house. Thanks to a thorough defence, our client was cleared of all wrongful charges.

Mr. M found himself facing an impossible situation at home, with his child and ex-partner. After a heated argument, Mr. M tried to gather his belongings and leave. When he tried to reach for his phone, his ex-partner assaulted him, and jumped on his back to prevent him from leaving. Struggling under her weight, he pushed her off and she fell to the floor. Following the argument, Mr. M gathered his belongings and was patient after his ex-partner called the police, and he was arrested for assault 

At the station, Mr. M was determined to share his side of the story, and contacted us to represent him. Our assault solicitors immediately sprang to action, ready to uncover the whole truth. After meticulously analysing all evidence submitted by the police and the prosecution, our criminal defence solicitors conducted their own thorough legal investigation. This included speaking to our client’s friends and family members to ascertain the nature of their relationship, working with mobile phone experts to scan the contents of our client’s messages to note the history of their relationship, and working closely with doctors and medical professionals to judge the bruises around our client’s neck and on the complainant’s body.  

The evidence pointed to the following: Our client’s phone revealed no proof of any assault or domestic abuse, and showed that our client tried to reconcile with his ex-partner for the sake of their child; witness and character statements proved that this was simply not in our client’s nature; medical reports showed that our client had bruises around his neck from when his ex-partner had assaulted him, and the bruises on the ex-partner were from falling, and not from domestic assault 

During the trial, our defence team submitted overwhelming evidence proving our client’s innocence, and the fact that he was trying to remove himself from an impossible situation. Our defence assault solicitors proved that our client was falsely accused of assault, that he was merely trying to protect himself, and that the complainant had filed the charges in a malicious manner. Faced with the facts, the jury realised that our client was wronged in this manner, and immediately voted to acquit him.
