With positive arrest policies and designated domestic violence Courts, what starts as a minor argument can quickly develop into something which has long-lasting and far-reaching consequences for couples and families.
Common offences we deal with on a daily basis, locally in Norfolk and East Anglia and nationally, include:
- Controlling and coercive behaviour
- Breach of Restraining or non-molestation order
Free legal advice will be available for the police interview and legal aid may be granted if the case goes to court, subject to means. However, many of our clients choose to instruct us privately because of our success rate in achieving acquittals and resisting applications for Restraining Orders.
The Prosecution may well decide to continue to pursue a case even though the ‘victim’ is no longer supportive. Bail conditions imposed by the Police and Courts are likely to cause considerable disruption so the sooner we are involved the better.
Our private client work is handled exclusively by our director Dave Foulkes who has an outstanding track record for achieving the best possible outcome.
