How We Can Help – Criminal Law

The law can be complex, particularly for individuals facing criminal charges. Getting strong legal representation from an experienced Newcastle criminal lawyer can help you secure the best possible outcome for your circumstances. Our experienced criminal law solicitors can help with a range of matters including:

  • Breach of Apprehended Violence Orders (AVOs)
  • Drink driving and driving under the influence of drugs
  • Assault and sexual assault
  • Theft and larceny
  • Drug offences including possession, cultivation and dealing
  • Property damage and public order offences
  • Local court appeals

Attending court to face criminal charges can be a very stressful and daunting experience but our criminal lawyers are here to help. We will provide frank, clear advice that is easy to understand, and explain the potential outcomes of your matter. We will ensure your legal rights are protected, help you prepare for your case and support you throughout the entire court hearing. With significant expertise in criminal law, we regularly appear in the Local and District Courts for a range of matters, including appeals and bail applications.

How We Can Help – Estate Disputes

The death of a family member can result in a range of legal issues and disputes, whether challenging the validity of a Will, seeking family provision if you have been left out of an estate, or defending a third-party claim against the estate. Estate disputes can be complex, draining and are usually fraught with emotion. That said, many can be settled through negotiation or mediation, using a practical and insightful approach.

We can guide you through the legal process and provide options to deal with a range of estate disputes with the aim of achieving a resolution without litigated court proceedings. Should litigation become necessary, however, our Newcastle estate dispute solicitors can provide strong advocacy and representation in court.

How We Can Help – Traffic Law

Being charged with a major traffic offence can have life-changing consequences. While many offences result in demerit points and a stain on your driving history, more serious offences can result in severe penalties – even a prison sentence.

Our experienced Newcastle lawyers regularly appear in court for a range of traffic offences, whether you are challenging the imposition of a fine and demerit points or have been charged with reckless driving or driving under the influence.

Some traffic offences can be defended on very limited and technical grounds while others require a different approach. Getting advice from an experienced lawyer is essential to ensure you are best equipped to answer the charges. Our traffic solicitors have a wealth of experience in this area and are ready to help.
