Assault

The Canadian justice system has a very broad definition for determining criminal assault charges and the consequences can be severe. Clients without experienced legal representation face greater risk of harsher penalties and increased incarceration time.  

Chargeable assault is the applied and intentional use of force towards another person. It can also be the threat of force through words, actions, or gestures. Holding or threatening the use of a weapon is also grounds for an assault charge. For those without a dedicated criminal assault lawyer, conviction of an assault charge can cost you up to 5 years in prison. If you were in possession of a weapon during the offence, the sentence can be instantly doubled, increasing jail time up to 10 years. With so much on the line, it is essential you have an experienced criminal defence lawyer who will fight to protect your rights and your freedom during your arrest and trial process.
