Common Assault

Common assault is the lowest level of assault in Canada. In criminal charges for common assault, usually, no injury has occurred, or the injury is very minor in nature, e.g. a scrape or minor bruise.

Where there is no history of assault or a previous criminal record an experienced assault lawyer can often persuade the Crown Prosecutor to deal with these charges via community service, conditional discharges, or by way of diversion.

Penalties for a Common Assault Conviction

If you are convicted of Common Assault, your permanent criminal record will show that you have been convicted of a violent crime.  The maximum penalty you will face is a 5-year jail term.


In addition, you face the possibility of fines, probation, and other problems associated with having a violent criminal record, such as firearm bans, employment challenges, and international travel restrictions.

We humanize you in the eyes of the Crown Prosecutor

When a Crown Prosecutor receives your case from the police all they see is your name, a case number, your charge(s), and the details of your alleged crime. That’s it. 


Our proprietary approach in dealing with the Crown Prosecutors on your behalf is to expand their vision of you. To help them see you as a ‘person’ — a father, son, brother, mother, daughter, sister and so on. We ensure they are aware of hardships you’ve endured in life, your goals, your ambitions. We want them to understand the life pressures on you that may have been a factor when the alleged assault occurred. And through proposed diversion programs, we want them to understand how you are dealing with this situation in a way that is most favorable to ensure it never happens again.


Having ‘humanized’ you in the eyes of the Crown Prosecutor, the next step is to negotiate to have your assault charges reduced, dropped completely, or withdrawn as a result of proposed diversion programs, and resolved with small fines, community service, or a peace bond.


However, if we have to go to court to fight for you, we will aggressively defend you, fight for your rights, and  strive to have all charges against you withdrawn.
