Melbourne Criminal Lawyers

It is an unfortunate fact of life that ordinary, decent and generally law-abiding people occasionally fall foul of the law. Tax returns are overlooked. Motorists exceed speed limits. The youthful exuberance of children and young adults can cause errors of judgment. People don’t always think before they act against those they don’t like. Alcohol is not always an ingredient.

And then, there are always people who just can’t help themselves.

For those unfamiliar with the criminal process, dealing with the Police and attending court to answer criminal charges is stressful and intimidating. There may be a very real prospect of imprisonment. It may not matter that the person has no criminal history. In cases where a person’s liberty is not at stake, a criminal conviction may substantially affect his/her future employment prospects. Depending upon the charges, even the most unlikely defendant may still face the substantial inconvenience of a monetary fine or cancellation of a drivers’ licence.

Good legal representation can mean the difference between a finding of guilt or innocence.
