We’re here to help

> What we do


If you have been served with a court attendance notice (CAN) by police or have been arrested and charged with a criminal offence, our dedicated criminal lawyers can provide the advice and representation you need to get the best possible outcome.

Getting the right legal help for your future

It is imperative that you obtain legal advice before talking to the police.

The penalties, fines and gaol time that are attached to certain criminal offences can significantly impact your future life, work, and other plans.

For many people a conviction for a criminal offence will significantly impact their lives and future employability.

You need a criminal lawyer who understands the law, the police, and the court process.

Our experienced criminal lawyers will make sure you understand your situation, your options and where you really stand in terms of defending the charges.
