Your Criminal Defence Starts Now...


Your initial consultation will allow us to quickly determine the scope of the charges you face. At this stage, you will generally be informed about the specific factors that relate to your charges and the likely costs associated with finalising your matter.


Immediate Action

We can start work immediately with any urgent matters, including bail applications, adjournments, applications to vacate and subpoenas for important documents and medical records.



We will obtain and fully examine the brief of evidence, and if necessary instruct a barrister on your behalf. Once we have all the evidence from the police or prosecution we will provide full comprehensive advice on how your legal matter should proceed.



We will negotiate on your behalf with the police or prosecution to amend, reduce or withdraw any charges, or to amend any agreed facts for sentence subsequent to a plea of guilty.



We will fully represent your interests in court at every stage of your criminal matter. Our lawyers are highly professional and experienced in all court matters. We will always fight for the best possible outcome.
