Sexual Offence Lawyers in Calgary

Sexual Offences Overview

Sexual offences refer to a number of charges including sexual interference, exploitation and most commonly sexual assault. A sexual offence is committed when the complainant was not consented to the activity that forms the subject-matter of the charge.

Being charged with a sexual offence has extremely serious consequences on the life of an accused person. You may face social stigma, financial hardship, and immeasurable stress. Our experienced defence lawyers are here to minimize the stress and, more importantly, will prepare a top-notch quality defence so that you do not have to fight this charge alone.

Defending Sexual Offences

Allegations of sexual offences are often prosecuted by senior, experienced government lawyers. It is therefore vital that you have a skilled advocate on your side. The rules of evidence and procedure relating to these charges are very complicated and a thorough understanding of those rules is vital to presenting your case in a clear and persuasive way to a judge, and possibly a jury as well.

We know there are two sides to every story. Our lawyers will review the entirety of the prosecution’s case and will analyze your version of events as well. We will be able to give you a sound opinion about your options and how best to proceed, based on our experience handling these types of charges, the strength of the prosecution’s case, and your expectations.

If the matter cannot be resolved in a way that you are satisfied with, we will zealously defend you in a trial, by challenging the Crown’s witnesses and other evidence, and, just as importantly, presenting your case in a trustworthy, truthful, and compelling fashion.

I am grateful that Ms. Moira McAvoy was my lawyer, and I remain thankful to her for everything. She made a successful resolution to my case possible. Ms. Moira McAvoy is a professional, trustworthy lawyer, and a compassionate person. She is an excellent listener and knowledgeable of the law. From the start, she was an excellent guide. I did not know anything about the legal system and court, and she outlined everything clearly in advance, so I could understand things. She never rushed me through anything. She spoke clearly, explained everything, considered what I said, and provided options and advice. She kept me up to date on new information, requirements, and deadlines. She was always positive and this helped so much.

Ryan Patmore and his team are simply the best. I was bullied by CPS in 2020 and it landed me with three separate charges, assault, refusal to blow and DUI, which all went down as I was parked at a friends. After some research and a conversation with Michael, he directed me towards Ryan and at the time I didn’t know that would be a game changer in my favour! He is honest, transparent, helpful and a brilliant mind. He successfully appealed my license suspension with ATSB and then proceeded to get the crown to dismiss all my charges before trial. I never had to step foot inside a courtroom. If you are in need of a criminal defence lawyer, don’t think twice, get in touch with this firm and ask for Ryan Patmore! The guy is an absolute saviour.

Joseph Beller, from the very beginning when I first contacted and then retained Joseph as my representative I felt I was in good hands. When I emailed him with a question. I got a prompt response. We communicated often on the phone as needed. Joseph kept me informed as to the process. He made sure I knew all the potential results so I knew and could plan for the different outcomes. I know this his his job. But appreciate his professionalism and also his ability to not make me feel any extra stress. Well done.
