Violent Crimes

It stands to reason that if you are being investigated or expect to get charged with a violent crime such as GBH (Grievous Bodily Harm), manslaughter or murder that you need to secure the services of the best crime solicitor as soon as possible.


We're experts in all aspects of homicide and assault law and will work to ensure you are treated in a fair and unprejudiced manner throughout your ordeal.


There are many types of crimes categorised in the UK as "violent crime"... In a nutshell it's where a person is subject to a physical force or violence.


Rape and sexual abuse are also considered violent crimes. 


If a subsequent death occurs as a result of the violence this is referred to as Homicide. The Homicide Act of 1957 lists the offences as;


  • Involuntary Manslaughter. This could be as the result of negligence on behalf of an individual.
  • Voluntary Manslaughter. This could be where there was an intent to murder but there may be a partial defence applicable. ie. diminished responsibility, mental illness or loss of control.
  • Murder. This is where an individual has maliciously killed with intent.
