At Family Focus Legal we are experienced in representing clients facing assault charges. These may be common assault charges or charges of a more serious nature such as assault occasioning actual bodily harm or reckless grevious bodily harm.
The loss of liberty for any person is devastating. If you are required to apply for bail, it is imperative that you obtain fast, accurate and useful advice from an experienced criminal lawyer.
Family Focus Legal has extensive knowledge and expertise when representing clients who have been charged with drink driving offences.
In some circumstances more minor drug charges may be dismissed under Section 10 of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act 1999. However, there are a wide range of drug offences including possession, manufacture, cultivation and supply of prohibited drugs.
Attending Local Court for any type of matter can be an intimidating and overwhelming experience. Having a solicitor who is well versed and knowledgeable in criminal and traffic matters can provide you with a greater opportunity of having your charges dismissed or your penalty reduced.
Being charged with an offence is a traumatic experience. At Family Focus Legal, our experienced solicitors can ensure you get the best possible outcome, whether you are entering a plea of guilty and being sentenced before the Magistrate or defending the charges at a hearing.
Family Focus Legal has extensive experience in representing clients charged with various traffic offences including drink driving, speeding, negligent driving and other more serious driving charges.
