Defending Criminal Charges

If you find yourself in the position of being charged with a criminal offence by the police, it is important that you know your rights.  You have the right to remain silent.  You do not have to answer any questions.  You have the right to have a support person or lawyer with you during any interview with the police.  If you have proof or evidence that shows that you are not the person responsible for the criminal act, then you should let the police know this as soon as possible.  An example of this may be that you were overseas at the time of the alleged offence and therefore could not have been the person involved.  In this instance you should immediately tell the police. 

Many people think that because they are arrested by the Police that there is nothing they can do but plead guilty to save on costs.  However it is important to only ever plead guilty if you are actually guilty.  You should obtain proper legal advice prior to making any decision regarding Court.  There can be serious consequences for having a criminal record.  A criminal record can affect employment prospects, travel overseas and many other aspects of your life.

If you want to plead Not Guilty, then you will need a lawyer to defend you to give you the best possible chance.  A lawyer should provide you with an honest assessment of your prospects for success.  A lawyer is obliged to tell you the truth of the merits of your case. 

We regularly conduct Not Guilty court cases for clients and have been extremely successful in obtaining excellent court results for our clients.  Our principal lawyer is a former member of the NSW Police service, and also taught criminal law at the NSW Police Academy.  This insight is particularly helpful in negotiating cases and defending clients in Court.

We offer excellent cost effective rates which is important when defending a criminal charge in court.  We are happy to discuss and assist you anytime.  Please contact us to discuss your case on
