Experienced Domestic violence Lawyer

After being involved in an altercation with your spouse, you are now facing criminal charges?

You have been imposed conditions and wish to discuss the matter with a lawyer?

In the process of a separation or a divorce, your former spouse has filed a criminal complaint against you?


  • Assault (common, using a weapon, causing bodily harm, serious)
  • Stalking
  • Death threats or threats to harm someone
  • Sexual assault
  • Breach of conditions
  • Break and enter
  • Kidnapping and forcible confinement
  • Harassing phone calls
  • Mischief
  • Intimidation

Getting ready

Here is how to effectively prepare for the first meeting with a lawyer. It is a first step in taking charge of your defence.


Write down every detail that seems important soon after your arrest:

  • Day of the week, date and time of events;
  • The location of events;
  • Witness names and contact information, if any;
  • The context leading up to the charge.


Gather all documents the police handed out upon your arrest.

Read the terms carefully and make sure to follow them. It is important to remember that if you do not appear in court on the day you are supposed to, and if no lawyer is there to represent your behalf, the Court will issue a warrant for your arrest.
