What you need to know when facing criminal charges

If you’re facing criminal charges, it means that the State or Commonwealth has brought an action against you for one reason or another. Seeking immediate legal advice is the most important thing you can do if you have been charged with an offence or expect to be charged. You could be facing potential imprisonment, a fine or both, but a good criminal lawyer will do everything they can to mitigate any charges against you and protect your interests, regardless of the case details.

Here’s five reasons why you should come see us if you’re facing criminal charges.

  1. There is a lot at stake when it comes to criminal matters. The outcome of the court case may significantly your family circumstances and may also impact your ability to work.
  2. There are a lot of myths out there which you shouldn’t believe. Each person’s case is different to the next. We will give you honest advice which you can trust.
  3. Understanding the court process can be complex. Our job is to help you understand the court process and the different ways you can resolve the court matter. The faster the matter resolves, the sooner you can get on with things.
  4. You may not always be able to “walk away” after a criminal case, but a lawyer who represents you effectively will ensure that the prosecutor has an uphill battle when it comes to proving their case against you.
  5. By engaging us, we will present your case in the best light to try and get the best outcome for you.

If you find yourself facing court, seeking advice is crucial. If you need a hand, please give our experienced criminal law team a call on 1300 285 888 or submit an online inquiry to arrange an appointment.
