Crimes of Violence
Our team have built up a lot of experience of dealing with crimes of violence right across the city of Glasgow. Many of our cases have been to the High Court, and we have been instrumental in a number of murder cases which were high profile and reported extensively in the media.
We are able to represent you in cases of violent crime in anything ranging from minor assaults to more serious crimes such as murder.
If you need help in defence from charges of common assault, murder, attempted murder, culpable homicide or assault to severe injury, we can help you.
In Scotland, the law states that murder is defined as somebody choosing to take the life of another person, or engaging in reckless behaviour that ultimately results in loss of life. In any murder investigation, it is vital that all evidence and facts are considered carefully, and our team are well trained in exactly this. We can help to highlight all key points in evidence to best support you.
This is defined as physical harm caused to another person, or the intent to cause physical harm or to cause an individual to fear for their own safety.
Self defence or provocation
There are certain circumstances where crimes of violence are not prosecuted, and these occasions are in situations where there was perceived threat to safety, and the resulting violence was purely a form of personal protection. In a selection of cases, self defence is an acceptable plea, and we can advise you to the best of our ability about the best way to put this case forward where required.
If you have been accused of assault, we can give you excellent advice about the best possible way forward in the situation. Our expert advice can help you to ensure the best outcome for your case.
