THE CRIMINAL DEFENCE SERVICES WE PROVIDE
PRIOR TO ARREST.
Police may wish to speak to you prior to formal charges being made. Police also have the power to search your property with or without a warrant. You do not have to say anything to Police at this time. If you feel that you are suspected of committing a crime, speak to us first.
In cases were Police oppose bail, we will do the hard work for you. We take care of the application and appeal process to get the best outcome available. We also apply for variations on your behalf where needed.
If the charges don't fit, then you don't have to plead guilty, you have the right to a trial. We pursue simple matters through the Magistrates Court or we can retain a Barrister to take the matter to a jury trial in the higher courts.
Not every outcome from the Court is the right one in every case. We prepare your application to appeal and present the best case possible to get a just and correct outcome.
ARRESTED OR GIVEN A NOTICE TO APPEAR.
If you have been formally charged or given a notice to appear in court, you need to get legal advice. We will go on the record as your legal representative and be there with you at your first appearance.
We receive the charges from the Police and review the details with you. We work through the charges and allegations to work out the best course of action and give you the best advice.
We'll then enter discussions with Police and Prosecutors about resolving your matter.
We also look at alternative pathways such as Mental Health Court, Murri Court or Diversion Programs as relevant to your circumstances.
PLEADING & SENTENCING.
If you plead or are found guilty of your charges, we'll speak up for you on your behalf. We will tell your story and present the best mitigation to sentencing for the best possible outcome.
