Criminal Offences

We have over 40 years experience working in the area of criminal defence. 

We believe in taking a proactive approach, engaging the authorities at the earliest stage to seek resolution where possible, so as to minimise the financial and emotional burden that is often associated with defence proceedings. ​


Our record speaks for itself.  We consistently achieve the best results for our clients, regularly having charges downgraded or dropped entirely. ​ Whether it be advocating in court, providing detailed legal advice or engaging in negotiations with prosecuting authorities, we are equipped with the legal acumen and nous to skilfully manoeuvre any situation to obtain the best outcome. 

The types of offences our criminal lawyers can help you with are:

  • Domestic violence

  • Assault and Violent offences

  • Murder and Manslaughter offences

  • Fraud offences

  • Sexual offences

  • Driving offences

  • Drug offences

  • Property offences

  • Robbery offences

  • Weapons offences


Our firm’s reputation is such that we are consistently referred criminal defence work by many top tier commercial firms and other criminal defence firms. ​


We maintain a professional working relationship with all prosecuting authorities. This ensures that submissions and negotiations undertaken on behalf of all clients are afforded the full and proper consideration required. ​


At all times we conduct ourselves with the utmost discretion. Confidentiality is treated seriously and maintained at all times. ​ We appreciate that defence proceedings can be an emotional and traumatic intrusion into your private affairs. This is why we do not release any statements or make any Courtside media interviews unless specifically requested. ​


If you have been charged with a criminal offence contact us immediately to obtain legal advice before giving any statement or record of interview. We can advise you of your rights and obligations in relation to police questioning and attend with you at the police station if necessary. ​
