Domestic Assault
Domestic assault is an assault that takes place between two people who are currently or were formerly dating, married or common law. Section 266 of the Criminal Code of Canada treats domestic assault similarly to simple assault. It is defined as applying force or threatening or attempting to apply force to another person, either with or without a weapon. An experienced domestic assault lawyer, we will be able to help you get through the challenges of being involved in a domestic assault, especially when children are involved.

If you’ve been charged with domestic assault, you may be held for bail. Calling in an experienced domestic assault lawyer to represent you at a bail hearing on short notice can often reduce the strict release conditions associated with domestic assault charges.

Penalties for a Domestic Assault Conviction

Domestic assaults are taken more seriously than other forms of assault. It’s more difficult for someone to escape a criminal conviction from a domestic assault charge than other types of assault.

Prosecutors are reluctant to drop Domestic Assault charges. When sentencing a person for an offence in a domestic assault case, the law requires the courts to consider the domestic setting, and determine whether that may have made the offence worse.

If you are found guilty of a domestic assault you can be sentenced to up to five years in jail. In addition, you face the possibility of fines, probation, mandatory counseling or other remedial programs, and other restrictions associated with having a criminal record, such as firearm bans, employment challenges, and international travel restrictions.

On the human side, your family may be torn asunder by a Domestic Assault charge. You may lose access to your children (and your children will lose access to their beloved parent) for a long time.

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.
