Any charge relating to violence is serious, we defend people facing everything from minor assault through to murder. In Victoria some of these offences now carry mandatory imprisonment.
We have successfully defended people in trials and hearings, negotiated charges down with the prosecution and prepared pleas that have seen our clients avoid jail time.
We also handle related proceedings such as intervention orders and applications for victim compensation.
If you are charged with an offence related to domestic violence, in Victoria you are not allowed to cross-examine your accuser without a lawyer. In every case you require the expertise of a criminal law specialist to achieve the best result in your case.
