>>>What should I do if I have been falsely accused of sexual assault?

If you have been falsely accused of sexual assault, you should immediately seek the assistance of a criminal defence lawyer. Unfortunately, many people mistakenly believe that if there is no direct evidence against them that they cannot be convicted of sexual assault, so there is no reason to be worried about the charges. This is simply not true, particularly in cases where there is very little to no objective evidence of the assault. For example, in alleged cases of unwanted touching, or when it is being alleged the assault happened a long time ago. Notwithstanding the fact that there is no evidence aside from the complainant’s allegations, the police and the Crown Prosecutor will still treat the allegation very seriously and will likely seek your conviction if the matter goes to trial.

At trial, your ability to establish your innocence can rest largely, if not almost entirely, on your word against the word of the defendant. In such a situation it is more important than ever that you have a criminal defence lawyer representing you at trial. Through skilled cross-examination, your defence lawyer can poke holes in the complainant’s allegations, thereby weakening, if not destroying, the case against you. A defence lawyer can also help you properly enter evidence that can show that the alleged offence was improbable or impossible, and that the complainant’s allegations are too inconsistent or incompatible with reality to be true.

Glowing Reviews From Our Clients

My career depended upon the successful resolution of my matter, and I couldn’t have been happier with the way Michael handled my case. He knew right away the best strategy to take to allow me to have my charges withdrawn, and was able to follow through as he promised, for a very reasonable cost. I would highly recommend this law firm.

S.A.

I would definitely recommend Michael Oykhman and his team. Not only were my charges dropped but the professionalism and empathy I was shown gave you confidence knowing someone was working just as hard as you would be to obtain the best possible result. For anyone looking for lawyer he is one of the best hands down.
