I have been charged with Assault by beating

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I had a dispute with a neighbour outside my partners house, he came onto her property shouting and swearing, about my van being parked, i asked him what his problem was, he has been awkward with me for the past 20 months, he went back to his house next door so I went to his porch to try and calm the situation he got aggressive and came at me so i put my hands up palms towards him to stop him, he stumbled back and fell and called to his wife to call the police, i left to pick my partner up from friends of ours as I had only come back to pick my dog up, I returned approx 40 mins later when I was arrested

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I believe I acted in self defence, the duty solicitor said ethnically it was an assault ! my intention was to stop this person coming towards me and causing myself or him any injury, unfortunately he has fallen backwards, how do I stand ?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
he claims i pushed him which i did not i merely put my hands up palms towards him in order to avoid a physical fight
