Ottawa Lawyers For Threatening Bodily Harm Defence

Domestic violence Assault Lawyer
Driving Offences Law firm

Strong Defence Against Serious Criminal Charges

Threatening bodily harm or death is a serious offence in Ontario. Those who may have made such threats in the heat of an argument may not fully realize the effects making such threats can have if the charges are brought. If convicted of making a threat to harm or kill someone, you may be subject to restrictions on your freedom and possible jail time, depending on the circumstances of your case.

The lawyers of Bayne Sellar Ertel Macrae understand that occasionally, arguments just get out of hand. Threats may be given without any real intention behind them. However, the law does not take such threats lightly. The firm will act quickly and diligently to defend clients’ rights against the devastating consequences of conviction or unfounded allegations.

We Investigate Throughly To Protect Your Rights

If you are accused of  making deadly threats, the Crown must prove that you knowingly made the threat and intended it to be taken seriously. It may look for evidence of past domestic violence charges or protective orders that may have been placed against you for spousal assault, criminal harassment or stalking, for example.

Bayne Sellar Ertel Macrae understands that each case is unique to both the individual facts of the case itself as well as the history of the two people involved. To that end, the firm’s lawyers will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your case. This includes examining police reports and interviewing anyone who may have been witness to the argument.

Many threats can arise in the context of other stressful family situations, such as divorce or financial problems. If you are going through divorce or bankruptcy, the firm will take extra precautions to seek outcomes that do not negatively impact your rights and interests in legal proceedings related to these other serious issues.
