Criminal Defence Lawyers
If you find yourself in the position of being charged by Police with a criminal offence, you may need to have a criminal defence lawyer help you. Why is it important to have a criminal defence lawyer as opposed to just having your local lawyer. As a criminal defence lawyer with eighteen years working in the criminal justice system, I have learnt many things which benefit my clients.
It is important to obtain the best advice and guidance possible. We provide realistic advice to our clients. If there is a legal defence to your situation we will know it and use it at court. The difference with our knowledge and skills is that as the principal of Able Defence Lawyers, I have gained considerable knowledge in the area of criminal defence after spending 12 years in the NSW Police. I have an indepth understanding of both the prosecution and defence aspects of criminal law. This is an advantage to my clients and the way that I practice law.
Many people think that it is too expensive and not worth trying to fight criminal charges. Able Defence Lawyers offer fixed fees for most criminal matters. This means that you will know how much it will cost you up front. You should never plead guilty to a criminal charge if you are innocent, or have a reasonable explanation for the events that happened. This is due to the long term implications of having a criminal record. If you have a criminal record it can affect your employment prospects, travel overseas, standing in the community. Even more seriously many criminal charges carry with them the prospect of a term of imprisonment.
If you are charged with a criminal offence, contact us at the earliest opportunity to discuss your case. We will always provide you with honest down to earth legal advice.
