Criminal Defence – Assistance for Your Situation

When you have been charged with an offence, understanding your rights, obligations and potential outcomes is one of the best assets you have. That’s where we come in. With more than 35 years of experience in Melbourne, our criminal defence lawyers can assist you. 

We negotiate with Victoria Police to reach the best result for you – whether that is minimising your charges or contesting them completely. 

If you wish to plead guilty, we will put your case to the court, ensuring there is a greater awareness of your circumstances before deciding on an appropriate sentence. This all helps to give you the best result possible. 

Criminal Injuries Compensation

Becoming the victim of a criminal offence can have a profound impact on your life but you don’t need to let it define you. If you are entitled to financial assistance or compensation following your injuries, we can guide you through this process.
