Emma Goodall’s client acquitted of a night club acid attack
Emma Goodall’s client, Andre Phoenix, was accused of throwing acid during an altercation on the dance floor of a popular club in Hackney causing serious burn injuries to a number of clubbers. The incident was captured on CCTV.
After a five week trial Mr Phoenix was found not guilty of four counts of causing grievous bodily harm with intent and other assault charges. These acquittals followed a successful submission of no case to answer in relation to ten additional counts. His co-defendant, Arthur Collins, who was subject to media attention due to his relationship with a TOWIE actress, was found guilty of a series of assaults.
Emma was instructed by Phaedon Georgiou and Trivena Jothibal of Joseph Hill Solicitors.
