Sexual Assault — Solid Defences For Complex Cases

Sexual assault cases can be extraordinarily complex. Cases can turn not only factual details, but particularly on the credibility of the complainant and the accused. Meticulous case preparation is crucial to making a strong defence in court.

At Der Barristers, our criminal law attorneys have been fighting sexual assault cases for years. We have the added advantage of having served as former Crown prosecutors. We understand these cases from all angles and want to use that knowledge to help you make a strong defence.

Navigating The Issue Of Consent

One of the most important questions in sexual assault cases is whether the activity was consensual. The onus is on the prosecution to prove that it was not.

As lawyers with depth of experience and breadth of insight, we can identify weaknesses in the prosecution's case and skillfully raise a reasonable doubt on the testimony of the complainant.

Strategic Representation In A Range Of Sexual Assault Charges

When you turn to us for legal representation, we will scrutinize your case. If defences exist, we will uncover them. We work closely with our clients and will prepare you thoroughly to face tough cross examination. As former Crown prosecutors, we know how to anticipate their strategies and can guide you on how to testify before judge and jury.

Our lawyers represent clients in Calgary, Alberta, and across the country at all levels of court. With decades of experience backing our practice, there is virtually no area of criminal law in which we have not been involved.
