Domestic Assaults

Domestic assaults and sexual assaults are among the most common charges faced by our clients. A domestic assault occurs where there is a non-consensual touching between two people who are currently or have previously been involved in a relationship. A sexual assault occurs when the non-consensual touch is for a sexual purpose.

These cases are often “he said/she said” situations, where the credibility of each of the parties is the critical issue. Effective cross-examination is key to obtain a successful result. The lawyers at Cooper, Sandler, Shime & Bergman LLP are highly regarded for their cross-examination skills and have regularly been asked to serve as instructors at courses and to coach law students at provincial and national competitions where proper techniques of cross-examination are taught.
