Criminal Charges and Police Investigations
Prior to contacting a criminal defence lawyer, it can be a good idea to exercise your right to remain silent.
If you are arrested by the police, then you have the right to make a phone call. It is ideal to use this opportunity to speak to a criminal defence lawyer and receive advice as to your situation.
This advice can be used to inform you in decisions – such as the extent to which you exercise your right to remain silent.
A criminal lawyer can advise you throughout the entirety of your matter – from police interviews to bail applications, pleas, committal hearings, trials and appeals.
In Queensland, criminal matters begin in the Magistrate’s Court.
The matter will either be determined by the Magistrate, or sent to a higher court, such as the District or Supreme Court.
A trial at the District or Supreme Court is generally heard before a judge and jury.
Appearing in court is always a daunting experience.
A criminal lawyer will guide you through the process, providing the relevant advice and the best strategy to defend the charges against you.
How Sunshine Coast Traffic Lawyers Can Help You
Traffic offences refer to breaches of the road rules, such as speeding, failure to stop at a traffic light, and failure to give way or stop at the relevant traffic sign.
Other more serious traffic offences may require the Magistrate’s court to disqualify the offender’s driver’s license.
Further examples of traffic law offences include:
- Driving without due care
- Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle
- Drink and drug driving
- Driving unlicensed
- Driving with an expired license
- Driving disqualified
If you have been charged with an offence or hope to apply for a disqualification removal, special hardship application, or restricted (work) license application.
A traffic lawyer can provide you with advice, help you complete the relevant documents, and represent you in Court.
A conviction for a serious traffic charge can result in a substantial fine, loss of license, or in some cases, jail time.
Losing your license can negatively impact your life and that of your family.
Effective advice and legal representation is imperative to explore your options, and to understand the significance of the actions you make in court.
