Uttering Threats
Uttering a threat occurs when a person knowingly utters or conveys a threat or causes a person to receive a threat.

A threat can take many forms: words, written messages, emails, social media postings, or actions that threaten bodily harm, death, or damage to real or personal property or injury or death to an animal belonging to the threatened individual.

Threats do not have to be verbalized to be convicted of this offence. A throat-slashing gesture could be perceived as uttering a threat.

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of the Crown Prosecutor, the next step is to negotiate to have your assault charges reduced, dropped completely, or withdrawn as a result of proposed diversion programs, and resolved with small fines, community service, or a peace bond.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to fight for you, we will aggressively defend you, fight for your rights, and  strive to have all charges against you withdrawn.
