Michael P. Juskey is a Barrie Assault Lawyer who can help you achieve the best possible results in the criminal justice system. The Criminal Code of Canada defines an assault as the intentional application of force against another person without their consent. A threat (by act or gesture) to apply force against another person is also an assault. If you are openly carrying a weapon and you approach someone aggressively, obstruct them or beg from them, you may be committing an assault. If you have been arrested and charged with assault in Simcoe County, Barrie Assault Lawyer Michael P. Juskey can help. The firm provides exceptional service, professionalism and results.
Simple assault is a hybrid offence which means the crown attorney can elect to proceed summarily (less serious) or by indictment (more serious).
I had the pleasure of working with Michael over the course of the last 6 months. Choosing a lawyer to act on your behalf can be one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make, in order to protect your reputation, as well as, achieve the best possible outcome with your current matter at hand.
When I spoke with Michael the first time, I explained my situation over the phone and he offered to meet with me to discuss details of my current matter and offer his professional knowledge and opinions.
I felt very confident after meeting with Michael that I was in very good hands. Having spoke with other lawyers prior to meeting with Michael, I knew Michael had my back and was going to do everything possible and necessary to achieve favorable results for my case. Michael was very responsive to any questions or concerns related to my case, provided encouragement, and was able to help keep me positive during such a difficult and unfortunate time in my life.
Michael gave me a scenario of different outcomes for my particular case and at the end of the day was able to upgrade my situation to have the charges withdrawn with a Peace Bond.
If you choose to retain Michael as your criminal defence lawyer, I believe you will have one of the top lawyers in Southern Ontario. I would absolutely recommend Michael for his services.
R v J.G.
J.G. was charged with assault (x2), uttering death threats and criminal harassment after his ex-girlfriend made a complaint to the police. He adamantly denied the allegations. Our objective was to persuade the crown to withdraw the charges unconditionally otherwise we would be setting a trial date. Given the seriousness of the allegations the crown was reluctant to drop the charges and insisted on a guilty plea. Trial dates were set. Following a 2-day trial, my client was acquitted of all charges as the Judge concluded that the complainant was an incredible witness due to a lengthly cross-examination. No jail. No criminal record. Full vindication.
R v J.L.
My client’s charges of Assault (x2) were withdrawn at the request of the crown. No criminal record.
R v A.S.
A.S. was charged with Assault, Assault with a Weapon and Assault Causing Bodily Harm stemming from a fight at a house party. There were two other co-accused. My client was alleged to have struck the complainant in the head with a bottle while he was kicked on the ground by the other defendants. Despite the lack of a criminal record, the crown initially sought a jail term of 90 days. The crown was reluctant to withdraw the charges and a three-day trial was scheduled. As the trial dates approached, the crown attorney finally agreed with our position that there was no reasonable prospect of conviction. Accordingly, the charges were withdrawn and the trial dates vacated. No jail. No criminal record.
R v C.T.
My client was charged with Assault and Break & Enter (dwelling) following a messy New Years Eve celebration. Upon being retained our office was successful in persuading the crown that there was a very small prospect of conviction in the matter. Eventually, both charges were withdrawn. No jail. No criminal record.
