Sean Fagan Criminal Defence Lawyer has successfully defended these cases, involving assault and violent offenses in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Nunavut. A marked increase in crimes of violence has given rise to tougher laws, increased vigilance by the police, and stiffer sentences by the courts. These cases often involve the media and evoke powerful emotional responses. The philosophy of our criminal lawyer in Calgary for defending criminal charges is simple: Win. Many offenses that previously resulted in a fine or probation now attract jail sentences, for which the law often imposes a mandatory minimum period measured in years. Unfortunately, who calls the police first often dictates who is named as the assailant and who is considered the victim – the police often lay charges and let the court system “sort it out”. Sean Fagan has defended many clients against allegations of assault, sexual assault, domestic violence, child abuse/neglect, uttering threats/criminal harassment/stalking; disturbing activities at night; breach of peace; refusing to provide breath samples (DUI); impaired driving; manslaughter/murder; dangerous driving causing bodily harm or death; possession or trafficking.
