Too often domestic violence charges arise out of emotionally difficult family situations, where other underlying problems may have led to an unintentional threat or advance. To law enforcement officials, however, the allegation stands until proven unfounded.
If you have been accused of domestic assault or some other form of domestic violence, put an experienced criminal defence lawyer on your side. Bayne Sellar Ertel Carter provides experienced and dedicated criminal defence for clients in Ottawa and eastern Ontario. We seek to help clients avoiding the devastating consequences of conviction or unfounded allegations so as to protect their rights and freedom.
Understanding The Consequences
The Crown takes domestic violence very seriously. Because of this, when law enforcement officers are called to the scene of a domestic dispute, it is often the case where an individual will be taken into custody and a formal investigation opened. Bayne Sellar Ertel Carter represents clients accused of various domestic assault charges, including:
- Partner assault
- Aggravated assault
- Criminal harassment
- Threatening death or bodily harm
- Forcible confinement
While investigation is ongoing, individuals may be prevented from having contact with spouses or their children. When you engage Bayne Sellar Ertel Carter to represent you, your lawyer can act to alleviate restrictive conditions that may simply aggravate the domestic problems which gave rise to the dispute in the first place. The firm seeks resolutions that both protect your rights as well as preserve family relationships wherever possible.
Often, domestic assault allegations arise out of related problems such as divorce or bankruptcy. The firm will take these other legal matters into account, seeking outcomes that do not negatively impact clients' rights in other legal proceedings.
