Under Canada’s assault and battery laws, any unwanted or nonconsensual physical contact could be classified as assault.
Assault convictions can carry stiff penalties ranging from court-ordered treatment programs, extensive fines, periods of probation, to jail terms. It is critical that you let the panel from Wardell Gillis prepare your case for trial. A criminal record due to a violent crime, weapons charge or any other criminal offense, will follow you wherever you go.
When defending against assault charges, a lawyer may be able to invoke self-defence—depending on the circumstances of the situation, Canadian law allows for some accommodation. While claiming self-defence can be a very complex and overwhelming task, it has been successfully applied to cases ranging from aggravated assault to murder.
We know how to argue your case to have your punishment reduced—or even to have the charges against you dropped.
