A trial before the District Court or Supreme Court is a masterpiece unfolding where despite the advanced warning of the anticipated storyline, a skillful criminal law advocate will give the jury assistance in finding the truth. The truth and that storyline might be vastly different.
A defence lawyer must know when to object, must know the applicable law, Court etiquette and procedure, must know the prosecution case as well as the defence case, and must think on their feet. There is no margin for error. The potential penalties are always severe and involve the risk of imprisonment. Those factors alone should make it obvious that you need experienced lawyers representing you.
Don’t take chances with your criminal trial. Contact our accredited criminal law specialist for advice.
We travel all over NSW. Many clients living in country areas do not want a local lawyer representing them for various reasons. We brief experienced barristers – not beginners, not those with interests in multiple areas of the law – only those that are committed to working with us as part of a criminal defence team.
If you have a matter that will eventually go to trial, no matter where it is at, no matter what stage of the proceedings the case is at, we invite you to contact our specialist criminal lawyers. We will give you appropriate advice, disclose our fees, answer your concerns, and above all, work very hard on your case. Preparation for trial can be extremely demanding. There may be subpoenas to issue, witnesses to conference, photos to take, scenes to visit, multiple conferences with you (which may include gaol visits), recorded interviews to listen to, CCTV footage to watch, examine DNA materials and reports, consider medical psychological or psychiatric reports and much more.
