Best Criminal and Traffic Lawyer for Northern NSW Courts

Have you been charged with a traffic or criminal offence in Northern New South Wales?

Finding a top defence lawyer in a regional centre can be a difficult task, but it is certainly not an impossible one.

From next week, our Senior Criminal Lawyer Mitchell Cavanagh will be spending a portion of his time up north, where he can work more closely with our valued Northern NSW clients.

Mitchell will be on-hand to represent clients in a range of regional courts, including:

Ballina Bellingen Boggabilla
Brewarrina Byron Bay Casino
Coffs Harbour Grafton Glen Innes
Lightning Ridge Lismore Macksville
Maclean Mullumbimby Murwillumbah
Tweed Heads Walgett Wilcannia

Mitchell and the team at Sydney Criminal Lawyers have extensive experience representing clients in Northern NSW courts, and we consistently produce outstanding results in the region.

Unlike other general lawyers, Mitchell is an “Accredited Criminal Law Specialist” – which is the Law Society of NSW’s certification of expertise and experience. Very few lawyers have achieved accredited specialist status, and Mitchell has held that status for a full decade.

In fact, Mitchell has nearly 20 years of specialist experience working in some of the toughest courts in Australia, and has undertaken thousands of criminal and traffic cases over his career; from drink driving, drug possession and assaults to some of Australia’s most difficult and high-profile murder cases, commercial drug cases and fraud trials.

His vast experience and expertise, coupled with his dedication to achieving the best possible outcome for each and every client, has earned Mitchell the reputation of one of the best criminal lawyers in the profession.

An exceptional courtroom lawyer, Mitchell has a wealth of experience fighting and winning difficult cases, and is known for his tactical skill and persuasive presentation when conducting Local Court defended hearings and jury trials in the District and Supreme Courts.

He is regularly praised by magistrates and judges for his exceptional courtroom ability, and often receives glowing testimonials from his clients – one of which is included at the end of this page.

While Mitchell is widely regarded as one of the best lawyers around, the team at Sydney Criminal Lawyers is committed to ensuring that quality legal representation is accessible and affordable to everyone.

This is why we offer fixed fees for a whole range of cases, including:

  • ‘Guilty Pleas’ – where clients wish to plead guilty in the Local Court and get the most lenient outcome
  • ‘Defended Hearings’ – where clients wish to plead not-guilty and defend the case in the Local Court
  • ‘Severity Appeals’ – which are appeals to the District Court because the Local Court penalty was too harsh
  • Driver licence appeals
  • Applications to quash ‘habitual traffic offender declarations’
  • Bail applications
  • Mental health applications (‘section 32’ applications).
  • And importantly, our fixed fees are published on our website for all to see.

We also offer a FREE first conference to advise you of your options and the best way forward.

No matter how trivial or serious your case may be, you can benefit from Mitchell’s experience, expertise, passion and dedication in criminal and traffic cases.

So for the best result in a Northern NSW court, call us 24/7 on (02) 9261 8881 to take advantage of your free first appointment.

Here’s just one of the many testimonials left for Mitchell:

“I have no reservations in recommending Mitchell Cavanagh as the most effective legal practitioner I have ever had dealings with in a working lifetime spanning some 45 years.

I came to know Mitchell when I was looking for a lawyer to assist me in defending myself against criminal charges.

The case came about when the DPP took up a recommendation by the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).

Due to the hard work, skill and diligence of Mitchell Cavanagh, the DPP “was compelled” to drop and withdraw all charges against me.

I believe the most critical element of a legal practitioner is their ability to win their client’s trust and confidence.

While it was very evident that Mitchell had a very heavy work load, he always gave me his undivided attention when we were together face to face or over the telephone.

Mitchell made me feel that everything I had to say to him was important and of interest to him.

He also made me feel that he would only make statements and observations to me that were carefully researched and based in facts of law.

In other words, Mitchell never could have been accused of telling me only what I wanted to hear.

I built up confidence in Mitchell by observing that the advice he gave me was virtually always vindicated by either future events, or by his legal peers and Judges, or by his opponents.

Mitchell’s research was very meticulous and the wording of his presentations was likewise.

My case was complex, involving an evidence brief of some 8,000 pages and additional research besides.

It required Mitchell coming to understand an unusual quasi Government regulatory and commodity trading business with complex accounting, financing and management systems.

Of course it also involved getting to know the intricacies and make up of my organisation and it’s people.

Mitchell not only quickly came to understand the business, but was then able to sort out his arguments so clearly in presenting a defence, that his arguments were never questioned by either the Judiciary or his opposing peers.

Mitchell was also extremely capable at sorting “the wheat from the chaff” and his presentations appeared to focus on the critical points more effectively than his opponents.

I found Mitchell to have the highest standard of courtesy and consideration for others.

He was always understanding and pleasant notwithstanding my own impatience “on occasions”.

Mitchell was never arrogant with me or anyone in my presence and could only be described as a totally dedicated person and a very professional advocate.”
