Fighting Assault And Sexual Assault Charges

If you've been charged with a violent crime or a sexual assault, the first thoughts that probably run through your mind are:

  • What's going to happen to me?
  • Will I go to jail?
  • What's the worst-case scenario?
  • Can I get out of a bad situation?

My name is Paul Erskine, and I'm a criminal defence lawyer in Brampton. After 14 years of practice, I've seen that most people don't know the answers to these questions. That's because the answers are different based on each person.

With weekly in-court experience fighting criminal cases, I've answered them all — and I'll help you find the answers and an effective defence.

Building Accuracy And Credibility For Your Case

Assault and sexual assault charges can be very damaging to your reputation. But it's important to remember that depending on the case, the charges can be fought, reduced or, in some instances, dropped altogether.

The strategy for each person will be different. What remains constant are your statements. Often, there are no witnesses to an assault or sexual assault. So, your statements need to be as detailed, accurate and clear as possible.

I operate in a judgment-free zone, so you can tell me anything. I will review your testimony and the opposing party's statements, and focus on the key strengths of your own case and the weaknesses in the prosecution's case against you.

Guiding You Through Intensive Preparation

Assault and sexual assault cases can evolve and change as they progress. To stay ahead of any surprises, you need to make sure you are thoroughly prepared to face a judge and jury.

At Erskine Law, I'll prepare you with detailed explanations on:

  • What your options are
  • Whether the offence can be considered assault with a weapon

  • What your best defence strategies are
  • What directions we can take your case in and what each will mean for you
  • How to provide testimony and face cross examination
