Our Domestic Assault Defence at Calvin Barry Law
We offer comprehensive defence at Calvin Barry Law whatever the circumstances of your case may be. We are prepared to address every possible scenario, be they be about posting bail, dealing with false accusations, missing witnesses or complainants, and more.
We will make sure to give the judge a comprehensive background of factors that led the assault even when the Crown prosecutor has proven your involvement in the assault. This will allow the judge to see both sides of the case as opposed to just hearing just the complainant’s side which may result in a ruling against you.
Know that if it can be proven that the accused is not a danger to society, it is possible to be released on bail. As your domestic assault lawyer, we will make sure to get bail in a timely manner and argue for better conditions during the Bail Review or the Bail Hearing. We understand that common bail conditions can be life-altering as they often involve banning from the family home and cessation of any communication between the complainant and accused. We try to facilitate a reconciliation whenever possible.
Part of our defence for domestic assault is gathering evidence aimed at casting doubt if a crime was truly committed by the accused on the day in question. We will help you find witnesses and help prepare them for your defence. This is important because in instances wherein the complainant chooses to recant the story or change details, or do not want to move forward with the case anymore because of strong emotional bonds, the Crown prosecutor may still continue with the case. Strong evidence and well-built defence by our team at Calvin Barry Law is key for a trial that represents you fairly. We take care to conduct the trial with respect to the complainant and only focus on countering the prosecutor’s intentions.
In the event that the complainant does not show up for a trial, a material witness warrant may be issued by the judge upon request of the Crown prosecutor. As your legal counsel, we will protest the prosecutor’s actions to prevent the issuance of such a warrant and call upon the prosecutor for a withdrawal of charges.
Some witnesses and complainants make false accusations in a domestic assault case due to a mental illness. Some do this to manipulate the case in the Family Court to result in a more favourable outcome for them in a future custody battle or to retaliate after the end of the relationship. Our team at Calvin Barry Law will pore through their evidence and identify discrepancies as well as point out possible motives.
At Calvin Barry Law, our team has the patience and skills necessary to cross-examine witnesses of any age. Consult with a Toronto criminal lawyer by calling Calvin Barry at 1-866-961-4963.
