Criminal and Traffic Law

The legal system can be complicated but we can help you to simplify the process. We have experience in the Local, District and Supreme Court.


Imagine that you have been charged with a serious criminal offence and a full-time custodial sentence is an available sentencing option. It is essential that you obtain advice at the earliest opportunity from a criminal law solicitor that will look after your best interests.

We can guide you through the process if you have been charged by the Police or a government authority, by assisting you to obtain character references and representing you in Court.

If you have been charged with any of the following criminal offences, contact us to discuss your situation. We offer a discounted fixed fee initial appointment.

  • Apprehended Violence Orders (AVOs)
  • Assault Charges
  • Break and Enter
  • Drug Offences
  • Malicious Damage
  • Murder/Manslaughter
  • Offensive Language/Conduct
  • Public Order Offences (Affray, riot, violent disorder)

  • Stealing/Larceny Offences
  • Weapons Offences

Traffic Law

Many of the traffic offences you get charged with have a very real chance that your Driver’s Licence will be suspended for a minimum period of 3 months. Without a Driver’s Licence you may not be able to continue in your current employment and that can cause significant financial hardship for you and your family.

Whether you have been charged with drink driving or a more serious offence such as dangerous driving, we can assist you.

If you have been charged with any of the following traffic offences contact us to discuss your situation. We offer a discounted fixed fee initial appointment and in some circumstances, a fixed fee to appear at Court for you.

  • Dangerous Driving Occasioning Death/Grievous Bodily Harm
  • Drink Driving
  • Reckless Driving
  • Drive Whilst Disqualified, Suspended, Cancelled or Unlicensed
  • Drug Driving
  • Licence Appeals
  • Negligent Driving
