When charged with having committed a crime or even a minor offence, whether you intend to plead guilty or not guilty, it is of utmost importance that you present before a Court in the most appropriate manner. Behaviour and dress in the Courtroom has an impact. Addressing the correct issues rather than wasting the Court’s time on irrelevancies, is appreciated up there on the Bench. Assisting the Court with matters of law and legal precedents is also appreciated. These levels of co-operation, basic stuff to an experienced Lawyer, can produce a more favourable result. Missing a vital but seemingly trivial point due to lack of knowledge and experience, could produce a disastrous result.

Make sure that you are well represented in Court

When pleading guilty, take to Court a Lawyer who knows the ropes – this Lawyer has “been there done that” numerous times for over 49 years. Give yourself the chance of the best possible outcome.

When pleading not guilty, take advice on your chances of success. Remember that a guilty plea is an unqualified admission of every element of the offence that otherwise would have to be proven beyond reasonable doubt. That is a very high responsibility upon the Prosecutor and follows the philosophy that it is better for 9 guilty to go free than one innocent to be convicted. You may have a chance so why not check it out with an experienced Lawyer.

Driver Licence

Losing a Driver Licence can also have disastrous results whether as a result of a conviction for a driving offence or because of an accumulation of demerit points. A “Restricted Licence” once called a “Work Licence” can be obtained for those who qualify – because without a Driver Licence employment would be lost and severe financial hardship thereby imposed. Even for those who have been granted a Good Behaviour Licence and then breach it, there is the possibility of a Special Hardship Order that can restore the Licence.

Consult this legal firm with nearly half a century of knowledge and experience first and get it right!
