Assault Charges

CRIMES OF VIOLENCE (assault - all types)

Crimes of violence include all types of assault, which are defined as an application or threat (by gesture) of physical harm - excluding the use of words. Crimes of violence include all types of assault. Assault is defined as an intentional application of force to another person without their consent. A criminal charge of assault can have serious legal consequences.

Several common defences are used to dispute charges of assault, including self-defence and consent. Retaining experience legal counsel ensures the best possible outcome. David Baker provides experienced and competent defence counsel to those accused of these crimes.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE / DOMESTIC ASSAULT (seeking a Stay of Proceedings or a 810 Peace Bond)

Seeking experienced defence counsel is vital to achieving a favourable outcome in incidents of domestic violence. Having successfully defended hundreds of clients accused of domestic violence and assault, David Baker provides strong guidance to those accused of these crimes.
