Things you should know

Visiting a lawyer as early as possible allows the time to:

  • Comprehensively prepare evidence.
  • Provide advice regarding your rights and an appropriate approach to dealing with the Police.
  • Advise as to the further conduct of the matter; for instance, an early plea of guilty is sometimes a mitigating factor on sentence.

  • Our senior lawyer, Adam, previously worked as a police prosecutor in NSW, so has a deep knowledge and experience of proceedings and considerations in how criminal prosecutions tend to work in the state.
  • Our senior practitioners have dealt with a wide variety of criminal matters over the years acting for defendants.
