Our proven track record in handling sexual assault cases speaks volumes. We have consistently achieved favourable outcomes, successfully defending numerous clients and safeguarding their rights.
Allegations: D.H. was charged with sexual assault.
Defence Strategy: During the preliminary hearing, establish inconsistencies in the complainant’s version of events that undermined the credibility.
Result: All charges were dropped at the conclusion of the preliminary hearing.
Allegations: A.P. was charged with sexual assault and forcible confinement.
Defence Strategy: Establish inconsistencies in the complainant’s version of events at the preliminary hearing that undermined credibility and reliability.
Result: All charges withdrawn by the Crown.
Allegations: A.S. was charged with sexual assault after meeting the complainant at the party.
Defence Strategy: Cross-examine the complainant to establish that what she had alleged was not credible. Point to differences between trial testimony and what was alleged in the police statement. A.S. denied any inappropriate conduct. Defence counsel submits A.S. is telling the truth, and the complainant could not be believed.
Result: The client was found not guilty of all charges after trial.
Allegations: D.S. was charged with sexual assault on a customer at work.
Defence Strategy: Secure withdrawal of charges before trial. Provide Crown with information confirming client is professional, a family man, and of good character. Show complainant had the motive to make a false allegation.
