‘Zero-tolerance’ does not comprehend the presumption of innocence. It prevents police and crowns from exercising discretion. It hurts families every day. A neighbour calls police because of some yelling, next thing you know bail conditions prevent parents from talking to each other about their own kids. Family income is devastated by the need to rent a second residence and the police and crown seem hostile to alleged victims who beg hopelessly for a right to have some say in the prosecution that has taken over their lives.
Real domestic violence is a serious problem, but criminal justice can be a brutal cure sometimes worse than the disease. All the more reason to retain an experienced criminal lawyer, because there are solutions.

How We Can Help
For decades Mr. Clark has acted for persons accused of domestic violence, and also for complainants whose voices can be ignored or drowned out by the separate agenda of the police and crown. In this area of criminal law complainants sometimes retain counsel for themselves, not only to ensure their own protection but out of concern for the accused whose presumption of innocence seems to have little practical value – until an experienced criminal lawyers takes over.
