Oshawa Domestic Assault Lawyers 

The law takes all domestic assault claims very seriously, regardless of their severity. Although there is no separate offence of domestic assault in the Criminal Code, many courthouses have now created specialized courtrooms that deal exclusively with cases of assault between intimate partners given the sensitive nature of these charges. The potential criminal penalties can be devastating. Consequences can arise immediately, well before a trial is reached. If you are released on bail, you will likely have strict conditions preventing you from communicating with your spouse and preventing you from going near your family home. From the outset, your life can be turned upside down and your family torn apart. You may be forced to separate from your spouse and children and your reputation may be ruined.

At Affleck & Barrison LLP, we have years of experience confronting domestic assault charges on behalf of our clients both in Oshawa and throughout the Durham Region and Central East Region of Ontario. We are sensitive to the uniquely personal nature of domestic assault charges, as well as their implications to other areas of the law.

Protecting You, Your Family And Your Future

Domestic assault charges often occur in relation to other family disputes such as divorce proceedings and child custody battles. In many cases, we are able to utilize affidavits and other documents from any related court proceedings to build strong defence strategies for our clients. We handle all types of domestic assault charges including those involving weapons offences.

When you retain us for legal services, we will take the time to understand the facts of your case and your unique circumstances. We will then build a vigorous defence strategy, using the best legal precedents to help protect your rights, your family and your best interests.
