FILTER SUCCESS STORIES
Our client, Mr. P, was accused of domestic assault by a former partner in the midst of contentious family law proceedings. Based on historical allegations, he was accused of hitting her in the head during a verbal argument, leading to her getting a concussion. Mr. P denied these accusations: he didn’t believe that this incident had occurred.
Our client, Mr. F, was accused by a close family member of sexual assault, indecent exposure, and assault. He was accused of sexually assaulting her when she was young, and later exposing himself to her. He was also accused of committing an assault on her
Our client in this case faced serious allegations and the goal was to have him acquitted and found not guilty so he could get his life back on track.
Our client, Mr. C, was a middle-aged man with a wife and kids and no prior criminal record. He found himself facing serious allegations, however, when he was accused of sexually assaulting the daughter of a former partner nearly 20 years prior.
Our client, Mr. M, was a middle-aged man with no criminal record, but he found himself in serious trouble when he was accused of sexual assault by the daughter of his neighbours.
Mr. G was charged with having care and control of a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of more than 80. Mr. G was also charged with having care and control of a motor vehicle while being impaired. Mr. G was found asleep in his motor vehicle.
The goal was to get both accused acquitted of the charges of assault causing bodily harm. To do this, our lawyers aimed to establish that the accused had acted in self-defence against the actions of the complainant.
The goal here was to have the accused found ‘not guilty’ by raising a reasonable doubt as to whether he had actually committed the act in question.
Given that the Crown was unwilling to withdraw the charge, the very clear goal in this case was simply to show the trial judge that Mr. E. had no intention of moving his vehicle from its resting point in the visitor’s parking of the townhouse complex.
It was clear to us that Mr. B’s name had been searched before police decided to arrest him. In the time the search was being conducted, no further indicia of impairment were noted by the officers.
When police arrived on scene, Mr. K was outside of his vehicle asking for police assistance. Officers then detected the odour of alcohol on his breath.
Mr. A was charged with Impaired Driving contrary to s. 253(1)(a) of the Criminal Code and Refusing to Provide a Breath Sample contrary to s. 253(5) of the Criminal Code.
Our client, Mr. N, was a hard working 23 year old man, employed as a bricklayer. It was essential to our client that he keep his driver’s licence so that he could travel from job to jobs sites in the Chatham area.
Over 80 cases are highly technical and involve a mixture of statutory and constitutional requirements. Failing to meet, or the violation of, those requirements often results in evidence being excluded and an acquittal entered.
Following a rather serious accident, an individual was charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm. What was their intent?
The Crown called one witness but we called three. We effectively cross-examined the Crown’s witness (the officer) and were able to present our three witnesses as credible. We successfully rebutted the presumption. Mr. T.G. was therefore acquitted of the charge.
Mr. G needed to avoid all the repercussions of the criminal record that would flow from a conviction of the Over 80 offence.
Inconsistencies in evidence about the sexual touching between police statement, preliminary hearing evidence and trial evidence made evidence not reliable nor believable.
Ms. M had been at a local bar having a few drinks with a friend of hers. As a result of being sexually harassed by a fellow patron (a tow truck driver), our client left the bar and drove to McDonald’s for a snack. The tow truck driver followed her out, and called the police to report a possible DUI. The reality is that the tow truck driver was hoping that our client would be arrested so he could tow the car and impound it for seven (7) days – perhaps earning $1,000 in the process.
Mr. G had been watching the CFL Grey Cup while he hung out with a few of his friends on the night of Sunday November 25 to Monday November 26, 2014. At the time, he was facing a serious financial burden as he was supporting his new, young family. After entering the car with his friends, he turned towards the street from the parking garage but shortly made an additional turn to return to the parking garage. An officer, who was located across the street, grew suspicious that he should be entering the vehicle so late on a Sunday night / early Monday morning on Grey Cup day and decided to investigate.
Following a mishap regarding our client being advised to take an incorrect dosage of Ativan, the Durham Regional Police Service stopped Mr. B’s vehicle as a result of erratic driving but, fortunately, before any accidents had occurred. Mr. B had no recollection of entering his vehicle or being caution by the police to pull his vehicle over.
