Why We Stand Out?

Why Do You Need A Criminal Lawyer?

A criminal lawyer is your mouthpiece both in and out of court when talking to Judges, prosecutors, witnesses, media and police officers. They protect your rights, advise and guide you through criminal proceedings, fight to get charges dropped by negotiations and fierce representation in court. They also carefully review the police evidence, find inconsistencies in them, and strengthen your defence, all to maximise your chances at getting the best possible result.

What Are Criminal Lawyers Called?

Criminal lawyers are sometimes called ‘legal practitioners’ or ‘criminal solicitors’ who specialise in criminal law. Criminal lawyers can also be called criminal law advocates or criminal law barristers who specialise only in criminal law. They can be either defence or prosecution.

What Are The Different Types Of Criminal Lawyers?

Criminal lawyers are either criminal defence lawyers or prosecution lawyers. Criminal defence lawyers represent people charged with criminal offences who appear in court, while prosecution lawyers are lawyers who prosecute those people in court. A prosecuting lawyers’ main role includes producing evidence to prove things beyond reasonable doubt that damage the defence case, while criminal defence lawyers have a broader role in cross examining prosecution witnesses in court to show inconsistencies, protecting their client’s rights, strengthening the defence case and more. These types of criminal lawyers can be barristers or solicitors in defence or prosecution.

Do We Offer Fixed Fees And Payment Plans?

Having done criminal defence law for many years, we understand the importance of transparency in fees which is why we provide affordable fixed fees for almost all types of criminal cases. The fixed fee is outlined on our fixed fee page of our website and will also be outlined to you at the beginning by our criminal defence lawyer during your free first consultation. The legal fees can be paid in instalments leading up to your first court date. We accept a part payment to allow us to at least immediately begin work on your case to avoid further delays.

Why Choose Criminal Defence Lawyers Australia®?

Our lawyers only work and specialise in criminal defence law. This makes us amongst the best at what we do and leaders in criminal law. Why our clients choose and place their trust in our team of criminal defence barristers and lawyers include:

1) Our high success rate is reflected by being able to maximise your chances of getting the best possible result.
