Criminal Law

If you have been suspected of committing an offence, arrested or charged with a criminal offence, it is essential that you seek the advice of an experienced criminal lawyer. Criminal charges are not only frightening and stressful, but they can also have a significant impact on an individual’s employment, travel and future business considerations. Therefore, no matter how straight-forward or difficult you may perceive your matter to be, it is always worth consulting informed and independent legal advice. Our office specialises in:

    • Arson
    • Assault / Affray
    • Bail Applications
    • Breach of Bail
    • Breach of Suspended Sentence Bond
    • Disorderly Behaviour
    • Drug Importation / Drug Trafficking / Drug Manufacturing
    • Domestic Violence
    • Driving whilst disqualified
    • Fraud / Money Laundering
    • Hindering Police / Resisting Arrest
    • Murder / Attempted Murder / Manslaughter
    • Sexual Offences / Rape / Indecent Assault
    • Theft / Robbery / Make off without payment
    • Weapons / Firearms
    • People Smuggling
    • Prostitution / Sexual Slavery
    • Acts to Endanger Life / Threatening Life

    It is also important that when you are suspected or charged with a criminal offence that you consider the broader implications which you may not realise at first. Violent offences can result in you being liable to pay thousands of dollars in compensation to the victim, receiving orders barring you from licenced venues, being served with an intervention order (restraining order),  losing the ability of holding or obtaining a firearms licence, and\or your visa status or citizenship application being affected.  Sexual offences can result in individuals being placed on the child sex offender register which has strict obligations a person needs to comply with.  These are only some of the broader implications which you may face and we encourage you to obtain legal advice as soon as possible.
