Here are some of the most common questions asked regarding our domestic assault, threats, and mischief criminal defence services. If you have further questions, simply call us to discuss your case at 647-228-5969.

444 Yonge Street (College Park)
1911 Eglinton Ave East (Scarborough - Warden & Eglinton)
2201 Finch Ave West (Etobicoke)

Halton Region (Burlington, Oakville, Milton)
491 Steeles Ave E. Milton ON

Domestic charges cases are handled differently at each courthouse throughout the GTA. In order to anticipate and successfully resolve potential problems with your case, it is important that your lawyer have substantial case experience at the specific location that your matter is being heard at. 

We also may be able to assist in cases outside of the GTA, however extra fees may be required.

I have a previous warning, prior 911 call(s), withdrawn charge, discharge, or criminal record, can my charges still be dropped?

Such factors will likely make it more difficult for us to negotiate the dropping of the charges, however it is definitely still possible. Factors that are relevant include such things as the length of time between now and your previous conviction(s), the nature of the previous charges, the facts of the current charge, and information regarding your background, character and current life circumstances.

Will a lawyer or paralegal handle my case?


You will be represented only by a Practising Lawyer certified by the Law Society of Ontario, not a paralegal.

Having a lawyer represent you ensures you are represented with the highest level of legal expertise. You also gain the benefits of the privacy protections guaranteed by attorney/client privilege. To see more about our lawyer, click here.

What else does your fee include?

Our flat fee also includes:
  1. Information on exactly how you can get your fingerprints, mugshot and charge records destroyed;
  2. How to repress the release of police records relating to your arrest on specific employment and background checks;
  3. Ways to minimize problems travelling to the US related to the charge information and record of arrest being stored in CPIC and other police databases;
  4. Information about potential immigration related issues: including work permits, PR, and citizenship applications;
  5. How to avoid and handle future questions from potential employers and law enforcement officials regarding the incident;

How long will this process take?

Depending on the court house that your matter is being heard at, the facts of your case, and the Crown Attorneys available to speak to on your court date, your case could take anywhere from one day to six months to resolve. Domestic cases are normally more difficult and take more time to resolve than similar non domestic matters.

If the Crown Attorney ultimately refuses to withdraw the charges and you do not wish to enter a guilty plea, the case will have to be set down for a trial which can take substantially more time. Sometimes the allegation is simply too serious to be able to avoid a trial. We are normally able to give you a realistic projection of the best and worst case scenario during the initial telephone conversation.

Our goal is to have the charges dropped and the matter resolved as quickly as possible. We represent you and protect your interests throughout the entire process.


Call us today for a free assessment

If you have been encouraged to take a case to trial when the facts are relatively minor (no weapon used or significant injury) and the "victim" is on your side, call us today for a second opinion. Often these types of charges can be withdrawn and the release conditions varied to allow contact without a risky and unnecessary trial.

You don't need to be apart from your spouse and family, spend tens of thousands of dollars, and risk getting a criminal record because of an unfortunate domestic incident. We charge a flat fee of $5000 +hst for most cases that we are able to resolve without a trial.
