Looking for an Edmonton sexual assault lawyer?
Sexual harassment and assault cases are often won or lost based on the work done during pre-trial investigation and preparation. We will examine phone records, voicemail messages, e-mails, text messages, social networking chats and instant messages in certain cases. We will challenge the Crown’s case, test witness’ testimony, and employ experts to perform independent investigations, in appropriate cases.

Alleged victims of sexual assault are often acquainted with the accused or work with the accused so our approach may include a thorough investigation of personal relationships.

“Assault and battery” law allows for a self-defence argument in certain cases and many accused persons can avoid punishment or receive lesser sentences on these grounds. In criminal assault cases, the self-defence argument is extremely technical but can be successfully applied in not only simple assault cases, but also to defend against charges of assault with a weapon, assault causing bodily harm, murder and aggravated assault charges. Physical assault or Criminal assault is ultimately construed as unwanted touching or touching without consent. At Gunn Law Group, our criminal lawyers apply unique strategies for presenting evidence to defence you against such an accusation. We often apply tactics involving witness cross-examination, and challenges to the police investigation and the prosecution’s case. Our lawyers for criminal assault and aggravated assault have successfully defended clients in the following areas involving violent crime defence:
- 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
Want to avoid a criminal record due to Domestic Assault Charges?
In Alberta, there is no specific charge dedicated to domestic violence assault charges and the majority of incidents involving domestic violence are often referred to as spousal assaults. Domestic violence assault cases are charged as assault charges like simple assault or assault causing bodily harm. Often, domestic assault battery incidents involve a disagreement between the participants. The alleged “domestic assault victim” and the accused often disagree on matters involved in the incident. In the area of spousal assault, the lawyers at Gunn Law Group have helped many of our clients avoid a criminal record by negotiating with the Crown to drop the assault charge in return for an agreement to enter into a type of restraining order called a 810 peace bond, also known as a “recognizance”.
Further, when people are accused of domestic assault, they often have to deal with an Emergency Protection Order issued against them by the courts. Emergency Protection Orders are often referred to as “EPO’s”. Our domestic assault defence team can help get an Emergency Protection Order varied or lifted.
