Do I have to write a good character and apology letter for court?

It is usually a good idea to prepare some good character letters and an apology letter for court if you are being sentenced. This can help convince the Judge or Magistrate to reduce your sentence penalty, which can help you avoid a criminal record, and in very serious cases it can avoid full-time imprisonment.

What’s the purpose of us being your criminal lawyers?

Our role as criminal lawyers is to stand by you and fight for you inside and outside the court room. We will maximise your chances of getting the best possible outcome by leaving no stone un-turned by the end of your case.

Our lawyers will:

  • 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.

Can I appeal?

You can appeal if you’re unhappy with your court outcome, especially if the Magistrate or Judge made a mistake, or if your case wasn’t prepared & presented well enough.

You have within 28-days to appeal a local court or district court decision. This time starts from the date you’re sentenced. Call us today to discuss your appeal options and prospects of success. We specialise in criminal appeals.

Can I negotiate with police to withdraw charges early?

Yes, you can negotiate with police to get charges dropped early, saving costly legal fees & stresses of having to go to court.

The chances of success depend on a case by case basis together with the strengths and weaknesses of the police evidence, and the timing of the negotiations. Our lawyers specialise in this. We can discuss this with you to provide you with a full case appraisal.
