After getting charged by police, you’ll generally have one of two options in court on your first day, as outlined in the below flowchart.

Some more serious cases won’t require you to enter a plea on the first court date, at least until a complete brief of evidence is served by police first.

We can talk to you about this further to tailor our advice to your particular case. Call us today.

If being sentenced in court for a criminal or traffic charge, a powerful good character & apology letter for court can be used to convince the Judge or Magistrate to impose a lighter sentence.

This can significantly increase your chances of avoiding a conviction, and in more serious cases, avoid full-time jail.

Our lawyers can discuss this further and guide you through it.

You will avoid receiving a criminal conviction if:
  1. You plead guilty and convince the Judge or Magistrate to give you a section 10 non-conviction sentence; or
  2. The court finds you ‘not guilty’ after hearing evidence from both sides in a defended hearing or trial; or
  3. The court dismisses the charge(s) under the mental health grounds such as section 32 Mental Health (Forensic Provisions) Act.

Our Parramatta criminal lawyers can discuss each of these options with you, and work towards achieving it.

Our role as criminal lawyers is to stand by you and fight hard for you, inside and outside the court room. We will maximise your chances of getting the best possible outcome.

  • Use their extensive knowledge, experience, team and resources to ensure your completely prepared for court.
  • Talk on your behalf and represent you in court, to maximise your chances at getting the best possible outcome.
  • Sit down with you & ensure you’re heard. This also means ensuring your evidence and version of what occurred is heard in court, in the most convincing, persuasive way.
  • We’ll make sure you’re kept updated at every step of the way in your case.
  • We’ll gather any necessary new evidence and issue subpoenas if required to prove your innocence.
  • We’ll carefully analyse the police evidence, pick out all the holes in it, and focus on negotiating with the prosecution to efforts to get your charge(s) dropped early.
