I've just been charged with a crime. What are my first steps?

In Australia, it's imperative to exercise your right to remain silent and seek legal representation immediately after being charged. Refrain from providing a police interview or making any statements until you've spoken with a lawyer. You have the right to contact a lawyer and receive legal advice before you speak to the police.Remember, anything you say can and will be used against you in legal proceedings.

I am innocent of the charges. How can you help me prove this?

As your legal representatives, our primary objective is to ensure your voice is heard and your innocence is established. We'll conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding your charges, meticulously review the evidence, and craft a strong defence strategy. In the Australian legal system, the onus is on the prosecution to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and we'll rigorously challenge the evidence presented against you.

How do you develop a defence strategy for my case?

Our approach to forming a defence strategy involves a comprehensive analysis of the prosecution's case, a detailed examination of the evidence, and a clear understanding of your narrative. We'll consider all possible legal defences, precedents, and statutory interpretations to construct a robust defence. Our strategy is always tailored to the specific nuances of your case and designed to safeguard your rights under Australian law.

What potential outcomes can I expect from my criminal case?

The outcome of a criminal case in Australia depends on various factors, including the nature of the charges, the strength of the prosecution's case, and the defence strategy. Potential outcomes range from having charges withdrawn or dismissed, a verdict of not guilty, a plea bargain for reduced charges, or a guilty verdict. Our goal is to secure the best possible outcome, whether that's a dismissal of charges or achieving the lightest possible sentence.

How much will legal representation cost me?

Legal fees in criminal cases vary depending on the complexity of the case, the amount of legal work required, and the length of the proceedings. We provide a clear fee structure and discuss all costs upfront, so there are no surprises. We believe in access to justice for all and will work with you to ensure you have a clear understanding of the costs involved in defending your case.
