CHARGED WITH A DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CASE? CALL US
Allegations of domestic violence are serious and must be dealt with in the most sensitive way possible. Over the last decade, the Province of Alberta has established a separate courtroom to handle domestic violence allegations. There are specially assigned Crown Prosecutors who handle the prosecution of domestic violence allegations as well. The various police services throughout Alberta have little discretion when a 911 complaint is made regarding domestic violence allegations. Therefore, many times, a spouse or partner who has no criminal history whatsoever will find themselves before the domestic violence court. Therefore even minor domestic violence allegations are being treated seriously by the authorities. However, this does not mean you are alone or your case is hopeless.
Our firm understands these matters will have a lasting effect on your family. This is why it is important to hire legal counsel who can defend your rights in court, yet also think creatively and compassionately to minimize the consequences for you and your family members.
In many cases, an accused partner or spouse will have a no contact order placed upon them and will be removed from their own home. Let us help you deal with this issue. We strive to fix these problems for clients. Our lawyers have previous experience handling family law matters and can use that experience to navigate the potential problems your criminal charges present.
We can assist you with speaking to the Crown Prosecutor’s Office and when required, defend your side of the story.
