Proactive Lawyering: Protecting our Clients

When someone is accused of a crime, that person's life changes overnight. Whether defendants did anything wrong or not, their lives become subject to the scrutiny of the Crown as soon as the police charge, "assault" or anything like it. To go through the court process is not only costly financially, it costs emotional strain on both the defendant and the defendant's entire support network. When there are children involved, they have to go through the trauma of not knowing if their parent is safe, not knowing if their parent is telling the truth, not knowing if they're going to see their parent go to jail.

Acquittal Won: No one can be convicted without proof beyond a reasonable doubt

We are glad to have won our client an acquittal on the basis of a pillar of Canada's criminal judicial system: the Crown must prove that the accused is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. No matter what the crime or what the potential sentence, nothing short of this standard will do to deprive a person of their liberty according to the tenets of the Canadian system. In a case of sexual assault and sexual interference, we were able to advocate for our client by putting the evidence to this standard.
