Domestic Assault Lawyers

Our Toronto domestic assault lawyers at Bytensky Prutschi Shikhman are committed to assisting clients throughout the GTA.

Being charged with domestic assault is a terrible and traumatic experience for anyone, but the stress involved in these cases is magnified when the alleged victim is your spouse.

Police and Crown Attorneys are directed to apply a rigorous “zero tolerance” approach to allegations of domestic violence. Even when the complaining spouse does not want to see charges laid or requests to have charges and bail conditions dropped, prosecutors are often extremely reluctant to agree. Although domestic assault counseling programs are often recommended by Crown prosecutors in exchange for leniency and improved bail terms, defendants are usually required to enter early guilty pleas to avail themselves of these options. A domestic assault lawyer will review the strengths and weaknesses of your case. We can connect your spouse with an independent lawyer to advise them on their options while referring you to respected counseling programs that can help smooth the path to a withdrawal of the charges. When settlement is not an option, our criminal defence lawyers have the sensitivity, training, and skills to ensure that your case is meticulously prepared and scrupulously defended.
