Dan Jones was instructed to defend an allegation of assault which occurred in the context of a neighbour dispute.

The prosecution case was that Dan’s client had launched an unprovoked attack on the complainant, whereas he said that he had been acting in self-defence at all times.

Following Dan’s robust cross-examination of the prosecution witnesses and a powerful closing speech, the jury returned a unanimous not guilty verdict in just 42 minutes.

Dan was instructed by EBR Attridge solicitors.
