Seeking legal advice when charged with a criminal offence

Being charged with a criminal offence is an extremely anxious and daunting experience that can dramatically impact your life and your relationships with family and friends.


Obtaining legal advice from our criminal law specialists at the very outset of your matter is crucial to knowing what your options are and what the process moving forward will be. Obtaining legal advice can also assist in the prospects of defence counsel negotiating with the prosecutor about the charge and/or facts alleged against you.


It is crucial to obtain advice about your matter before speaking to anyone, which includes police. Receiving legal advice before talking with the police can sometimes be the difference between being charged or not being charged with an offence.
