What to do if you have been charged with a crime
Have you been charged for a crime and are you going to be prosecuted by the WA Police Prosecution Service, WA Director of Public Prosecutions or the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions?
If you have been charged with a criminal offence you have the legal right to competent legal representation. Even if you are innocent it is crucial that you speak to a criminal defence lawyer without hesitation and certainly before you speak to police.
An allegation of criminal offending is a serious matter. Any person facing a serious criminal charge is at risk of immediate imprisonment.
The criminal justice system does not discriminate between types of personalities. People from all walks of life with a good education and unblemished backgrounds walk through the doors of our criminal law firm charged with serious criminal offences seeking competent criminal legal representation.
There is of course the emotional side of being charged with a criminal offence. We understand the emotional stress you face when confronted by police, often on the doorstep of your home, and are then taken to the police lockup, pressured into participating in a visually recorded interview and charged and kept in custody or released on police bail to appear in court some time in the not too distant future.
Your first and subsequent appearances in court simply intensify the emotional stress that you feel as well as the stress on your family and friends. Criminal courts are not nice places. Criminal courts are a shocking experience to those that have been there before, let alone those that are there for the first time.
With extensive experience in dealing with a range of criminal cases, we have become one of Perth’s most recognised law firms specialising in criminal defence law. We are determined to provide legal services that you can trust and be confident that our lawyers are looking after you every step of the way.
