If you have been charged with a criminal offence, the penalties can be severe. This can have a significant impact on your family, your job and, of course, your freedom. For this reason, it is vital that you are represented by a lawyer who understands the complexities of Criminal Law, as well as the many defences available to those facing a criminal charge. Seeking the advice of an experienced lawyer may lead to penalties that are less severe, or even a section 10 dismissal of all charges.

Threats over infidelity lead to serious criminal charges
After finding out that his girlfriend was having an affair, our client sent a series of abusive texts to the other man, leading to criminal charges. Initially the court deemed the messages threatening enough to warrant a prison term. We subsequently appealed to the District Court, where the sentence was promptly overturned.

Several creditors lodged proceedings against our client's small family business, claiming tens of thousands of dollars. We successfully contested several adjournments and stays of proceedings, allowing our client an extra 5 months to arrange financial affairs to his satisfaction.

We negotiated with our client's wife's solicitor to make the divorce application joint. We subsequently attended on behalf of all parties; order granted.
