If you have been charged with offences relating to assault and violence then I can help.
I have handled thousands of cases relating to assault and violence and understand that the judiciary always treat any criminal offence relating to violence very seriously and that preparation is important to achieving the right outcome.
Often the police lay a variety of charges, including unlawful assault, common assault, assault in company, recklessly causing injury and serious injury, negligently causing serious injury, intentionally causing injury and serious injury, conduct endangering person, conduct endangering life, affray and riot.
If you are pleading guilty to offences, negotiations will need to take place with the police to reduce the number of charges.Assault cases may involve a number of people been charged with various offences, the clients roll and appropriate charges will have to be negotiated with the prosecution.
There are a number of factors that could potentially mitigate a client’s actions and in some cases remove any criminal culpability at all.
Assault matters often involve multiple parties being charged. In many instances police find it very difficult to prove matters in relation to individual defendants.
