How Do You Find the Best Domestic Assault Lawyer?



There are probably many domestic assault lawyers near you. Everything we have talked about below would help you find the right one.

Bail Applications
Once the case has been filed, you might be reprimanded until the trial date. This isn’t the best, as the trial can take a year or two. If you don’t want to go to jail, you’ll have to file bail applications. How well the documents are filed would affect the ability to get out.

Work with domestic assault lawyers that have a history of getting bail granted.

Communication
As domestic assault cases can last a while, you need to work with someone that is an excellent communicator. The experience you’ll have would be uncomfortable otherwise. But more importantly, the representative might not inform you about important information on your case. Domestic assault will not be taken lightly by the courts in Ontario, as there might be full orders of protection around the victim. If you try and contact him or her, you will face an additional charge.

Working with someone who’s a great communicator would also result in the two of you coming up with an excellent defense.

Cost
Lawyers can be pricey to hire, especially domestic assault ones. Look around before choosing a firm to work with. If you’re strapped for cash, don’t worry. There are firms that offer pro-bono work – your case might look good on their portfolio.

The lawyers that charge the most would be the most experienced. If you have the cash to spend, don’t skimp.

An Excellent Eye
Something that would help you win your case would be if the lawyer finds holes in the opposition’s claims. Go through reviews; you’ll know what others have said about the solicitor you want to work with. Hopefully, there are reviews about how sharp the lawyer’s eyes are.

He or she should also be smart enough to see whether the evidence submitted was inadmissible or not. And they need to be able to counter any of the opposition’s claims.

Experience
Domestic assault charges are broad. From abusing a loved one to stalking a minor, they all fall under the category – the same goes for a sexual assault. The lawyer should be experienced in the type of case you are facing.

If there are multiple representatives experienced in the case you have, go with whichever one has the best success rate. Choose the one that has been in the game for the longest too.

Schedule
As it could take up to a year for the case to go to trial, you should regularly be meeting the solicitor to come up with a defense. You’d think working with a representative who is busy is good idea, but this isn’t always the case. You won’t be able to see him often if he has to juggle fifty other clients.

Final Thoughts
When it comes to choosing the right domestic assault lawyer, there is a lot to keep in mind. Consider all the points mentioned to select the best one.
