Our client, Ms. S was falsely accused of assault and grievous bodily harm after she and her friend, Ms. W got into an argument while drunk. What began as a minor argument escalated into a violent fight because of the alcohol, and resulted in Ms. W getting hurt as she fell through a window. Ms. W then wrongfully filed assault charges, forcing Ms. W to contact us to represent her and reveal the truth. After a lengthy legal investigation, our assault solicitors proved that Ms. W did not intend to hurt Ms. S in any way, and that a majority of her injuries were caused by falling through a window. The jury immediately acquitted our client, and our criminal defence solicitors were able to clear the air.

Ms. S and Ms. W were close friends, and were spending the night sharing bottles of wine. However, the night got ugly as they kept drinking, and an argument inevitably broke out. After Ms. S asked Ms. W to leave, Ms. W tried to return to retrieve her phone. Though Ms. S asked her to wait outside and she’d give the phone back, Ms. W broke into the house through the window, and damaged the coffee table. A fight ensued and Ms. W and Ms. S suffered from injuries because of the fight, and the broken glass on the floor. Imagine Ms. S’s surprise when she woke up the next day to find herself arrested for assault and grievous bodily harm 

After contacting us to represent her, our assault solicitor sprang into action, determined to uncover the truth. After meticulously analyzing all evidence submitted by the prosecution, including allegations of grievous bodily harm (GBH), our criminal defene solicitors conducted their own thorough legal investigation. After gathering witness and character statements about our client and her relationship with Ms. W, and working with forensic and medical experts to determine the source of our client’s injuries and Ms. S’s injuries, our criminal defence solicitors were able to arrive at the truth – our client was falsely accused, and was trying to defend her reputation. 

Our criminal defence solicitors discovered that a large part of Ms. W’s injuries were caused not by our client, but because Ms. W tried to climb in through the window and fell through, knocking over a coffee table and scratching herself with the broken glass. Furthermore, Ms. W attacked our client – as she was extremely drunk, her intentions weren’t clear and a fight broke out. Our client sustained injuries as she was trying to protect herself, and was left with injuries on her face, a broken window, broken furniture, and a false allegation of grievous bodily harm (GBH) to boot.   

During the trial, our assault solicitors submitted voluminous evidence, including forensic reports, that pointed to our client’s innocence regarding the charge of grievous bodily harm (GBH). These reports detailed our client’s wounds and the source of those injuries. Faced with these facts, the jury immediately acquitted our client, clearing her name and ensuring that she walked out a free woman.
