What do criminal defence lawyers do?

Criminal lawyers represent you during what is sometimes the most difficult time in your life.

If you have been (or might be) charged by police, we make sure those charges are correct, and that the police have enough (lawfully obtained) evidence against you to prove the charge. If they do not, we will challenge the police for you in court. Even if they do, we can represent you in court and get you the very best outcome.

To find out what we can do for you specifically, contact us.

When should I call a lawyer if I am facing criminal charges?

You should always seek legal advice if you are unsure about your rights, or if you have a charge pending and you don’t know what might happen. Contact us to get initial advice about your specific circumstances.
