Assault and Domestic Violence

Vancouver Criminal Lawyer

Assault Charges

Each assault lawyer at Stern Shapray, Criminal Lawyers has extensive experience representing clients facing all forms of assault charges and charges related to domestic violence, including:

Domestic Violence and Spousal Abuse

Assault charges, charges for assault causing bodily harm, sexual assault, uttering threats and criminal harassment charges may all fall under the category of domestic violence if they arise from an incident between people involved in a domestic relationship. In many cases, the charges are based on little more than allegations of a minor physical altercation or words exchanged in the course of a heated argument. However, a conviction can have a significant impact on one's life, current and future employment, education, finances, family court proceedings and the ability to travel into the Unites States of America.
