Solicitor Advocate

Our client faced an allegation of Actual Bodily Harm (ABH) stemming from an argument with their partner. It was claimed that during an attempt to drive home, our client struck their partner’s knee with their vehicle and then reversed, hitting them again. The complainant reported the injuries to their GP but did not seek hospital treatment.

Our client maintained their innocence, denying the alleged incident entirely. Through meticulous cross-examination, we uncovered discrepancies in the complainant’s account of the events, the lack of visible injuries, and their behaviour immediately before and after the purported incident. These factors raised doubts about the credibility of the complainant’s evidence.

Ultimately, the District Judge acquitted our client, recognising the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case presented by our skilled legal team.

With no prior convictions, this acquittal ensured our client preserved their unblemished record, reputation, and employment status. Our diligent defence secured a favourable outcome, protecting our client’s rights and future prospects.
