It can be a very stressful experience to be charged with a criminal offence. It is important that you obtain legal advice. You should make an appointment with one of our lawyers to discuss your matter. All initial consultations are free of charge and there is no obligation to move forward with us.
If you have been charged with an offence and need to appear at Court we can help. We often appear for people who have been charged with theft, assault, driving offences, drug offences and contraventions of intervention orders. If you wish to appeal a conviction or sentence imposed in the Magistrates Court to the County Court we can also provide you with advice and representation.
Our lawyers are experienced advocates and will generally provide you with representation at Court. Sometimes we may recommend that a barrister be engaged to represent you or to provide detailed, specialised advice. We have great relationships with a number of barristers.
In your free initial consultation, we can discuss whether you may be eligible for Legal Aid. If not, we generally offer fixed fees in relation to criminal matters. An overview of our fees can be found here. If you choose to proceed with us you will be provided with a written fee estimate. We work hard to maintain affordable fees without compromising on quality. We can also offer payment plans to help you manage your expenses.
