ABV Solicitors have considerable expertise in representing those accused of violent crimes such as s.18 Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH), s.20 GBH, Actual Bodily Harm, Common Assault, Affray, Robbery and Kidnap.
The law relating to violent offences is based on principles from the 19th century. Consequently, it is outdated and many regard as not fit for purpose. Prosecuting agencies have developed strategies such as “victimless prosecutions” in an attempt to paper over the cracks. At ABV Solicitors we pride ourselves on both being alive to these problems and employing our own specialist knowledge to advance our client’s case.
Whether you face a serious allegation of intentional Grievous Bodily Harm, or the lesser allegation of Common Assault, we know that the consequences of a conviction can be devastating. With access to leading advocates and forensic experts ABV Solicitors provide clients in appropriate cases with the ability to rebut and put forward a strong defence when the Prosecution case is built on forensics, injury patterns, cellsite or facial mapping and other forms of evidence.
If you or someone you know is facing a criminal investigation, call our dedicated team who will provide you with advice and expertise.
