The Advantage of Hiring a Domestic Assault Lawyer

On behalf of Neuberger & Partners LLP posted in Domestic Violence on Friday January 04, 2019.

Life has a habit of throwing you curves. There can be situations where, in a million years, you would have never expected that you would need to hire a criminal defence lawyer. Domestic abuse allegations are very serious and can have dire consequences for the person accused of family relations, including custody and access to children. In Ontario, there are mandatory charge polices that result in a charge or charges being laid with only the statement of the complainant to substantiate the allegations. The person who is accused of such an offence has his or her life turned upside down – removal from the home, complicated methods of access to children and having to defend against charges in Criminal Court. This underscores the importance of hiring an experienced and skilled expert in domestic assault and abuse cases.

Neuberger & Partners LLP has defended over 2000 cases involving domestic related charges, including assault, sexual assault, threatening and criminal harassment. We have 50 years of combined litigation experience to bring to your defence and marshal a vigorous, creative and persuasive defence.


Turn to a domestic assault lawyer who has years of experience in dealing with cases of domestic assault, domestic sexual assault and related offences. A skilled and informed Criminal Defence Lawyer in Toronto has the experience and expertise to get you through one of the most emotional times in your life.

Case Planning:

A domestic assault lawyer will help properly plan and strategize your defence, which will consequently aid in being advantageous in court. An expert domestic assault lawyer will provide you with sound advice and will gather evidence to ensure that your case is strong and substantial resulting in a final judgement that is swayed in your favour.

Consequences of a finding of guilt:

Every case which is taken to the court, especially for domestic assault or violence, will undoubtedly expose a client to the potential of very real consequences. Sometimes these consequences will include custody, criminal record, loss of access to children, restricted ability to travel and more. When you have retained a domestic assault lawyer in Toronto, you can be assured that every avenue will be explored with the intention to defend you and reduce the chances of a guilty verdict.


Having an expert lawyer who has previously handled domestic assault and sexual assault cases can help you take command in the courtroom. You can strongly present your position and the lawyer will be sufficiently skilled to cross-examine based upon the defence theory. Lawyers with extensive trial experience and who are Certified Specialists in Criminal Law bring to your defence the ability to cross-examine the complainant and witnesses in a manner that will advance your defence and uncover frailties in the Crown’s case. Acquiring the skills to successfully cross-examine a complainant/witness, and defend a client, takes years of experience in the Courtroom to refine and develop a robust ability to successfully challenge the complainant. Neuberger & Partners LLP has that level of expertise, skill, and respect in the criminal justice system to vigorously defend anyone charged with a domestic assault offence.
