Success Stories and Publications

Domestic Violence Charge Dismissed

GTC's solicitor Shirley Casey represented an adult male accused of Aggravated Assault Occasioning Bodily Harm, against his wife. This was a criminal charge that arose from a domestic violence matter.

Despite Shirley's best attempts to negotiate with the prosecution, the matter went to trial. After extensive legal argument, and the presentation of detailed evidence to the Court, the Defendant was acquitted of the offence.

This result was achieved due to the solicitor's thorough preparation of all aspects of the case and being completely ready to face the Court on the trial day. Shirley paid careful attention to the client’s personal circumstances and collected evidence in support of the case. The client's success in this matter demonstrates the significant impact that a well-prepared and professional solicitor can have on the outcome of a serious offence matter.
