Domestic Violence

Allegations of domestic violence

If you are being investigated or prosecuted in relation to a domestic violence case, our team of specialist defence lawyers can help. We provide expert legal advice and representation at the police station and in court. We do not handle legal aid cases and we are not the ‘duty solicitor’, we are highly skilled specialists with extensive experience of dealing with domestic violence cases. 

Domestic violence is not just considered in terms of physical violence (common assault, ABH, GBH), but can also include controlling and coercive behaviour, emotional or psychological abuse, harassment, threatening behaviour and sexual abuse.

Specialist criminal defence lawyers

We understand that allegations of domestic violence are often made in cases of marriage breakdown and that such allegations can be used as part of divorce and separation matters. At Mowbray Woodwards we also have a team of highly regarded family lawyers who can help you with such issues relating to divorce or children.

Highest level of service

We understand that if you have been accused of a criminal offence, it can be a very distressing time. You may be worried about the impact on your family, your job or your business. We offer a professional, genuine and non-judgmental service. You can rest assured that we will provide you with the best service as well as the best legal representation.
