If you have been charged you need advice and representation. When facing allegations of criminal behaviour what you do first is vital to the successful outcome of your matter. The first thing to do is to call our criminal law firm for expert practical advice and for an explanation of your legal rights. Findings of guilt, criminal convictions and gaol sentences can impact on all aspects of your life, both now and in the future. Aspects like work, travel, relationships, education and insurance to name a few. You owe it to yourself to be properly advised and represented.
If you are charged with criminal offences your Court case is likely to be many months, if not years away. This is a terribly stressful time for the accused, their family and friends. The Criminal Justice system is generally totally unknown to those charged. It is complex and often difficult to understand. As well as achieving the best possible outcome, our criminal lawyers in Melbourne have the expertise to assist you through that process and to reduce the stress for all concerned.
You may not be under investigation or be charged, but still may require legal advice. When a person dies in unusual circumstances, there will probably be a Coronial Inquest. If they are a member of your family or you have knowledge of the incident you may be asked to make a statement to Police and appear as a witness in the Coroner’s Court. You may have an application for an Intervention Order issued against you. You may have had a working with Children permit refused. VicRoads may have suspended your licence. In these examples, you are not charged with offences, but will benefit from legal advice and legal representation if necessary.
