We will dedicate the time and effort to thoroughly examine all the evidence to find problems with the prosecution case – where issues are found, we can push to have the charges dropped outside of court, saving you time and money.

If the matter proceeds to a criminal trial, our experts will fight hard to protect your innocence by raising all possible defences to the charges and presenting all evidence that supports your case in a compelling manner.

Alternatively, if you simply want to accept the charges against you, our expert defence team can help you get the best possible outcome in your case by pushing to have the charges downgraded to a less serious charge.
