Assault Defence Lawyers in Edmonton
Assault, Domestic Violence, and Aggravated Assault
The strongest lawyers are the ones who are in court nearly every day and who know how to cross-examine. If you or someone you know has been arrested and charged with assault, aggravated assault, assault with a weapon or an assault involving a domestic dispute, or any other violent crimes or criminal charges, Gunn Law Group can help.
Conviction for these crimes can result in extremely harsh punishment. Physical assault or Criminal assault is basically defined as unwanted touching or touching without consent. Assault used to be known as “assault and battery”. The law on assaults is not entirely inflexible and allows for defences such as provocation and self-defence. The self-defence argument is very technical but can be successfully applied by experienced counsel in criminal assault cases including simple assault cases and in cases of assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, murder and aggravated assault.
Our criminal lawyers have successfully defended clients in the following areas involving violent crimes:
- Sexual assault charges
- Domestic violence charges
- Murder charges
- Uttering threats
- Obstructing peace officers
- Robbery charges
- Disorderly conduct charges
- Aggravated assault charges
- Conspiracy charges
- Weapons charges
At Gunn Law Group, our criminal lawyers apply strategies for evidence presentation to support your defence, such as witness cross-examination, challenging the police investigation as well as the rest of the prosecution case.
Avoid a criminal record arising from Assault Charges!
In Alberta incidents involving domestic violence are sometimes also referred to as spousal assaults. Domestic violence assault cases are often charged as simple assault or assault causing bodily harm. These domestic assault “battery” incidents frequently involve a “he said/she said” situation. The alleged “domestic assault victim” and the accused often disagree about the circumstances which contributed to the incident. The lawyers at Gunn Law Group have helped many clients charged with assault avoid a criminal record by negotiating with the Crown or by taking the matter to trial.
In addition, when people are accused of domestic assault, they often have to deal with an Emergency Protection Order issued against them by the complainant. Emergency Protection Orders are often referred to as “EPO’s”. Our domestic assault defence team can help deal with an Emergency Protection Order.
