Commonwealth Offences


Federal or Commonwealth charges cover a range of alleged criminal behaviour, from minor Tax and Customs offences to serious crimes under the Criminal Code Act.

Commonwealth cases are generally prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions (CDPP) or the Australian Federal Police (AFP).

Because of the vast resources at the disposal of the CDPP and AFP, it is essential that you seek superior representation from criminal lawyers who are experienced in defending Commonwealth prosecutions.
