Criminal Law Advice and Support

All criminal law and road traffic matters

Criminal Law

Our criminal law specialists help people charged with offences who are required to appear before the Local Court, Children’s Court, District Court, and Supreme Court.

The experience of being charged or even suspected of a criminal offence can be stressful and daunting. Criminal offences can carry hefty fines and/or terms of imprisonment, and therefore is essential that you receive specialist and practical advice as early as possible after the police make contact with you.

Our emphasis is on listening to your concerns and providing accurate legal advice so that you can make informed decisions regarding your case.

Where possible, we will negotiate with the Police on your behalf in seeking to avoid being charged or to reduce the number and/or severity of the charges.

If is necessary to fight the matter, we will provide you with experienced and effective representation at Court. If you require the services of a Barrister, we can recommend and brief specialist criminal law Barrister’s, looking after your best interests throughout the process.

 

Traffic Law

In NSW, traffic offences are considered seriously. Most traffic offences carry a mandatory licence disqualification or loss of demerit points. A loss of licence can have a devastating impact on a person and their family, especially for people living in country areas.

It is important to get competent legal advice as early as possible, whether you have received a penalty notice, had your licence suspended or been charged with a serious traffic offence.

The traffic law specialists at Walsh & Blair Lawyers get exceptional results by guiding your through the complex road and traffic laws in NSW. We will provide you with advice regarding the best strategy to either keep your license or to reduce the time you must spend off the road. If the matter goes to Court, we understand that the best result is always achieved by thorough and careful preparation, and experienced representation.
