M. V.

M.V. was a former client that had retained our office 3 times previously. While her criminal record was extensive, she had made tremendous strides in self betterment. The client was charged with numerous domestic assault and mischief to property charges. The most serious charge was an allegation that she struck a minor while in her boyfriend’s home, a fact which she vehemently denied. The Crown sought Jail and the matter was set down for a 2-day trial. In Calgary, multiday trials require a pre-trial conference. At these conferences, Crown and Defence lawyers sit down with judges to narrow the legal issues. Mr. Wyman used this pre-trial conference as an opportunity to persuade the prosecutor as to the legal arguments that would be advanced at trial. Following this meeting, the Crown elected to terminate the prosecution.

E.L.

Our client was a University Student with no criminal record. He had been travelling down 17th avenue with his girlfriend when a fellow motorist took issue with one of his lane changes. The incensed complainant tailgated our client for a number of blocks while honking his horn and yelling obscenities. At a red light, the complainant emerged from his car and smashed our client’s windshield. In response to this, E.L. exited his car and a fist fight ensued. During the altercation, the complainant’s teeth were fractured. The client was charged with assault causing bodily harm as a result. After reviewing the disclosure material the matter was set for trial. At trial, notwithstanding the serious injuries, the presiding judge agreed with Mr. Wyman that the client was acting in self defence. An acquittal was entered with all finger prints and photographs associated with the prosecution being destroyed.
