We have considerable experience in advising clients on criminal charges laid in the summary jurisdiction. If you are faced with a more serious charge we have a number of barristers which we can recommend.

The traffic and criminal cases in which we have particular expertise include:

  • Excess Breath/Blood Alcohol charges (Drink Driving)
  • Careless, Reckless and Dangerous Driving
  • Log Book Offences
  • Speeding Offences
  • Possession of Drugs
  • Assaults
  • Theft
  • Sustained Loss of Traction
  • Driving Whilst Disqualified

Whilst we assist you through the Court process, we can advise whether you may be eligible for Police Diversion, make special applications such as name suppression and a discharge without conviction, advocate on your behalf for the appropriate penalty or take your matter to a defended hearing.

“I can't speak highly enough of Jenny. She got everything done in a timely manner and when my ex-husband threw a spanner in the works at the eleventh hour she got the required documentation to his lawyers and settlement back on track.” ~ Tracey
“John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)” ~ Jess
