Assault Defence Lawyer

Our Assault Injury Lawyer Successfully Defends Clients in and Around Vancouver

Being charged with assault is very trying, especially if you believe that you have been wrongfully charged. Whether the charge is small or great, the process of working through it and getting your life back to normal will take quite some time. It is not a situation that you should attempt to handle on your own. Instead, you need the help of a Vancouver assault lawyer who will consider all sides of the story and defend you against false charges and wrongful punishments.

Benefits of Hiring an Assault Defence Lawyer

Because your personal rights are guaranteed in British Columbia, you may believe that you can handle your assault charges on your own. However, whether you are guilty or innocent, it is a smart move to hire a defence attorney as soon as you have been charged. Here are just a few ways that your attorney will be able to help you.

  • He is very familiar with all of the laws related to criminal defence.
  • He will be dedicated to defending you as this is his legal responsibility once hired.
  • He can explain the charges, legal process and your rights.
  • He can take part of the burden of legal responsibility off you and your family members.
  • He will work with a team to keep the legal process moving as swiftly as possible.
  • He can defend you against legal actions that could significantly and negatively impact your future.

Understand Your Legal Rights with the Help of an Assault Defence LawyerCharges Handled by an Assault Defence Lawyer

Criminal assault is described as an unwanted attack on someone but is further defined by British Columbia law as applying intentional force without the other person’s consent, threatening to apply this force or intimidating someone else while visibly carrying a weapon. Of course, there is much additional language in the law code that describes the specifics of these activities, and you need to hire an assault and battery lawyer who understands the legalese.

Our lawyers can handle a variety of criminal assault charges, including aggravated assault, domestic assault, gang assault, bar fights and threatening speech. We work diligently to ensure that each of our cases is brought to a successful conclusion.

“I was charged in a complicated situation involving elements of the both Criminal Code and immigration law. The amount of disclosure I received from the Crown prosecutors was overwhelming to me… but Dave helped me get through it all. Dave managed to work out favourable agreement with Crown that not only allowed me to continue living in Canada, but also ensured that I had no criminal record so that I can freely travel to the U.S.”
"His knowledge of the law is impressive."
