“My life took a sudden and drastic turn when I was falsely charged with sexual assault. It was a traumatic and highly stressful time for me and my family, as the daunting task of having to enter the criminal court system was overwhelming.
It was at this time, that my lawyers from Rotenberg Shidlowski Jesin stepped in to both put together my case and provide me and my family with the necessary personal support.

Mr. W.G. was charged with assaulting his spouse and then assaulting the police officer who came to arrest him. We interviewed other witnesses to the incident who were able to provide evidence that the spouse had suffered a mental breakdown at the time. We were able to show that our client had not assaulted her and that the complainant had likely hallucinated the event.

Together we examined the evidence gathered by the police and provided our legal opinion to the Crown Attorney that the allegations were more appropriate for the Civil Court process. The Crown Attorney agreed and withdrew all charges against the clients.
