If either you or someone you know has been charged with any kind of a criminal offence in Sydney, it is extremely important that you obtain the services of an experienced criminal defence lawyer.

There are many different consequences that you could face for committing a crime in New South Wales, such as a driver’s license restriction and even jail time. Even if you are charged with something as minor as a drunken driving offense, you can still face serious consequences, such as jail time, restrictions on your insurance, and even restrictions on being able to travel.

If you fail to obtain any kind of legal representation the first time something like this happens to you, you likely will not be able to obtain a second chance at something like this if it happens again. The first time you are charged with any kind of a crime, get in touch with our criminal law firm‘s expert lawyers who specialize in this law in order to determine what your various options are.
