Traffic Offences NSW

Sydney Traffic Lawyers

Being in a situation where you could lose your driver licence can be stressful and unsettling.

You may be concerned about your ability fulfil your work or family commitments, and the overall impact of potentially being off the road for a significant period of time.

The situation can be made worse if you are facing a criminal record, and worse still where the charges are serious enough to jeopardise your reputation and even your freedom.

But rest assured the situation can be substantially improved by obtaining advice and representation from specialist traffic lawyers with a proven track record of helping drivers to keep their licences, avoid a criminal record and – in serious cases – maintain their reputation and liberty.

The Sydney Criminal Lawyers® defence team is vastly experienced in assisting drivers to obtain optimal outcomes in traffic cases, such as avoiding licence suspensions and disqualifications as well as criminal records by achieving ‘section 10s’ and ‘conditional release orders without conviction’. 

We do this by using our thorough knowledge of traffic law and procedure to develop and implement effective strategies that achieve results; whether that involves thoroughly preparing and persuasively presenting cases in court to avoid a suspension, disqualification and/or criminal record, or building defence cases to have serious traffic cases withdrawn, downgraded or thrown out of court.

So, whether you have received a speeding ticket and are worried about the impact on your licence, or been given a penalty notice for low range drink driving – or a court attendance notice for mid or high range – or been charged with a more serious driving offence such as dangerous driving occasioning death or GBH, contact us now to arrange a conference with an experienced traffic lawyer who will fight for the best possible outcome in your case.

If you’re going to court, we offer a free first conference for all traffic cases.

We also offer fixed fees for most traffic cases.

So Call us 24/7 on (02) 9261 8881 to book your conference.

12 Reasons to Choose Sydney Criminal Lawyers®:

1. Proven Track Record of Exceptional Results

Sydney Criminal Lawyers® consistently achieves outcomes which are in the highest percentile of the Judicial Commission’s sentencing statistics for criminal cases.

Our legal team devises effective case-strategies and fights hard to have cases dropped entirely or charges downgraded – saving clients the time, expense and stress of a defended hearing or jury trial.

Where cases nevertheless proceed, our lawyers have an outstanding track record of winning defended Local Court hearings, and complex jury trials in the District and Supreme Courts.

We also consistently win appeals in the District and Supreme Courts (including the NSWCCA) after clients have received unsatisfactory results with other law firms in the lower courts.

We are one of the few firms to achieve successful criminal law appeals in the High Court of Australia.

Where our clients wish to plead guilty, we frequently achieve ‘dismissals’ and ‘non convictions’ in cases where other lawyers have advised there is no chance of doing so.

2. Highest Level of Client Satisfaction

We have the best and most comprehensive client review record of any law firm in Australia.

Regular communication, accessibility and quality service are our team’s highest priorities.

We are committed to thoroughly explaining all steps involved in the criminal law process, providing regular updates throughout the proceedings, and making ourselves accessible and responsive.

We are passionate about providing an exceptional level of service to our clients, and we fight hard to achieve optimal results in the shortest period of time.

3. Australia's Most Awarded Criminal & Traffic Law Firm

We have received more awards and accolades than any other criminal law firm in Australia.

Our team has been awarded “Criminal Defence Firm of the Year in Australia” in a number of prestigious and competitive awards programs for several years running.

The awards recognise our exceptional track record of results, our outstanding client service, the high level of satisfaction we achieve, the affordability of our services and our overall excellence.

4. Fixed Fees

We want our clients to know exactly how much their cases will cost from the very start.

That’s why we were the first criminal law firm in Australia to publish ‘fixed fees’, back in 2004.

We offer fixed fees for most types of criminal cases and services.

Our fixed fees apply to a range of Local Court cases such as drink driving, drug possession, fraud, common assault and AVOs, and also specific services such as prison visits, bail applications, appeals and defended hearings.

Unlike many other law firms, our fixed fees are published on our website – which ensures transparency and certainty.

5. Free First Appointment

For those who are going to court, we offer a free first conference of up to an hour with one of our Senior Criminal Defence Lawyers.

We also offer a free first conference to those who have received an unsatisfactory result after being represented in court by another law firm, or after representing themselves, and wish to appeal.

6. Specialist Lawyer Guarantee

We guarantee that only lawyers with substantial criminal defence experience will work on your case and appear for you in court.

This ensures our clients receive the highest quality representation from an experienced, specialist criminal lawyer.

7. All NSW Courts

From Bombala to Broken Hill, our lawyers appear in courts throughout New South Wales – and across Australia for Commonwealth cases.

And we offer fixed fees for most criminal and traffic law cases throughout the state.

8. Accredited Specialists

Our entire firm is exclusively dedicated to criminal law – which makes us true specialists.

All of our lawyers have years of experience representing clients in criminal cases, and our principal has been certified by the Law Society of NSW as an Accredited Criminal Law Specialist since 2005.

An ‘Accredited Specialist’ is a lawyer who has practised for at least 5 years in a particular field of law (such as criminal law), has passed a rigorous assessment process conducted by the Law Society of NSW, and has been selected by the Specialist Accreditation Committee of the Law Society as an expert in the field. Accredited Specialists are required to undertake more training each year than other lawyers and must be successful in having their accreditation renewed every year. Specialist Accreditation is the mark of a true specialist.

Our firm’s specialist experience ensures you receive the best possible result, whatever your criminal law case may be.

9. Results-Focused Law Firm

Our team is passionate about achieving results, and unlike many other law firms, our lawyers do not have monthly financial ‘budgets’ to meet.

The absence of budgets means our lawyers are entirely focused on achieving optimal results in the shortest space of time; whether by getting charges dropped or downgraded at an early stage or having cases ‘thrown out of court’.

Not having budgets also means our lawyers are not under pressure to engage in unscrupulous practices such as unnecessarily adjourning cases or ‘overcharging’ clients – which, sadly, is a common complaint against many other lawyers and law firms.

No budgets encourages regular consultation between lawyers within the firm – promoting an ‘open door’, team environment where lawyers bounce ideas off one another, formulate case strategy together and benefit from each other’s specialised experience, methods, techniques and insights.

The result is a firm which delivers optimal outcomes in the shortest time periods, at the least expense and stress to our clients.

10. Team of Lawyers Behind You

Our clients benefit from the pool of knowledge that only an extensive team of experienced criminal defence lawyers can provide.

Our lawyers regularly consult one another to stay ‘ahead of the pack’ in the ever-changing field of criminal law – constantly devising, refining and implementing specialised techniques which ensure our clients achieve the best possible outcomes.

A team approach is particularly important when it comes to serious criminal cases such as murder, commercial drug cases, serious and sexual assaults, large-scale fraud, robbery and other ‘indictable’ cases.

In such matters, clients reap the benefits of several lawyers devising and executing case strategies which maximise the chances of having cases dropped or downgraded at an early stage, or ‘thrown out of court’ – often saving clients a great deal of cost, time and anxiety.

11. Familiar with Magistrates and Judges

Each of our lawyers appears in court on a daily basis, and has done so for years.

We have therefore been able to develop an understanding of, and rapport with, magistrates and judges in Sydney and indeed across the state.

Our team’s extensive experience before the courts ensures your case is tailored to the specific nuances of individual judicial officers, maximising the likelihood of a favourable result.

12. Convenience

We have offices in locations across the Sydney metropolitan area and beyond, including:

  • the Sydney CBD, on Castlereagh Street, directly opposite Downing Centre Court,
  • Liverpool, directly opposite Liverpool Local Court, and
  • Parramatta, near the justice precinct.

We offer free parking at our Sydney CBD and Liverpool locations, and all of our offices are close to train stations and bus terminals.

For those who are unable to attend our offices, we offer conferences by telephone, Skye and FaceTime anywhere around the world.

If you are going to court and wish to arrange a free first consultation, call our 24 hour hotline on (02) 9261 8881 or send us an email at info@sydneycriminallawyers.com.au.
