Traffic Offences


Print

Whether you are going to court for drink or drug driving, or would like to appeal a licence suspension, or are charged with negligent, reckless or dangerous driving, our senior traffic lawyers will ensure you achieve the best possible outcome in the shortest space of time.

Here’s why over 1000 drivers every year choose Sydney Criminal Lawyers for their traffic cases.

12 Reasons to Choose Sydney Criminal Lawyers for Your Traffic Case:

 

1. Proven Track Record of Exceptional Results
We consistently produce outcomes in all types of traffic cases which are in the highest percentile of the Judicial Commission’s sentencing statistics; including results which have not been achieved by any other law firm in NSW.

We frequently achieve ‘dismissals’ and ‘non convictions’ in cases where other lawyers have advised that there is no chance of doing so.

We regularly win appeals in the District Court after clients received unsatisfactory results in the Local Court with other lawyers.

Here are some of our recent traffic case results.

2. Highest Level of Client Satisfaction
We receive more positive testimonials – including 5 star Google reviews – than any other criminal or traffic law firm in Australia.

Regular communication and accessibility are of the highest priority. Our team achieves this by thoroughly explaining all steps involved in the process, providing regular updates throughout the proceedings, and making ourselves accessible and responsive by way of telephone and email.

We care about each and every one of our clients and fight hard to achieve optimal outcomes.

Here are some of our client testimonials.

3. Australia’s Most Awarded Criminal & Traffic Law Firm
We have received more awards and accolades than any other criminal or traffic law firm in Australia.

We have been awarded “Criminal Defence Firm of the Year” in a number of prestigious and competitive awards programs for several years running.

The awards recognised our exceptional track record of results, our high level of client service and satisfaction, the affordability of our services and our overall excellence as a law firm.

Here are some of our awards, accolades and memberships.

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

That’s why we introduced ‘fixed fees’ to the profession back in 2004.

We offer fixed fees for most traffic law cases – from drink driving and drive with illicit substance, to drive whilst suspended or disqualified, to driver licence and speeding appeals, to defended hearings and appeals to the District Court.

And unlike many other law firms, our fees are published on our website – which is important for providing clients with transparency and certainty.

Here is a link to our fixed fees page.

5. Free First Appointment
For those who are going to court and don’t already have a lawyer, we offer a free first conference of up to an hour with one of our Senior Traffic Lawyers.

We also offer a free first conference to those who have received an unsatisfactory result in the Local Court and are considering an appeal to the District Court.

For those who aren’t going to court and would like some general legal advice, or who already have a lawyer and want a second opinion, there is a fixed fee of $220 inclusive of GST.

6. Senior Lawyer Guarantee
We guarantee that only lawyers with years of criminal defence experience will work on your case and appear in court for you.

This ensures you receive the highest quality representation from an experienced, specialist criminal defence lawyer – not a ‘junior’ lawyer or ‘general practitioner’.

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 most traffic cases throughout the state, including drink driving, drug driving, drive whilst suspended or disqualified, and driver licence appeals.

8. Specialist Experience


Our entire firm is solely dedicated to criminal and traffic law, and our team undertakes over 1000 traffic cases every year.

All of our lawyers have years of experience representing clients in traffic cases, and our firm is spearheaded by Accredited Criminal Law Specialists, including our principal who has decades of specialised experience in the field.

Our specialist experience ensures you receive the best possible result, whatever your traffic 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’.

The lack of budgets also means our lawyers are under no 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 traffic lawyers can provide.

Our lawyers regularly consult one another to stay ‘ahead of the pack’ in the ever-changing field of traffic 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 traffic cases such as dangerous driving occasioning GBH or death, and other ‘strictly indictable matters’.

In such cases, clients reap the benefits of a number of lawyers 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 traffic 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 three locations across the Sydney metropolitan area:

  • the Sydney CBD, on Castlereagh Street, directly opposite Downing Centre Court,
  • Liverpool, directly opposite Liverpool Local Court, and
  • Parramatta, on Marsden Street, opposite the Local and District Courts.

We offer free parking at our Sydney CBD and Liverpool locations, and all three 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 an email to info@criminallaw.com.au.
