Criminal Law

Contact with the criminal-justice system can be one of the more traumatic experiences people have.

You need to know your rights – and you need someone on your side.

Don’t wait to get in touch with us. If you are apprehended by police, remember that you have a right to silence – you don’t have to have an interview – and a right to ask to speak to a lawyer. Exercise your rights.

You may not be told that police are considering charging you with a criminal offence.

Even if you are charged, you may not be aware of available defences.

So, don’t talk to police. Pick up the phone to Fraser Criminal Law.

The criminal process can be long, involving many court appearances before you get your “day in court”. Depending on the seriousness of the charge, you might be appearing before a Magistrate or you might have to go to the Supreme Court before a judge and jury. You need to know all available options.

Of course, most matters are simpler, like assaults and drink-drives and many result in pleas of guilty. What are the penalties? What might the Court do? Could you be headed to jail? You need to ensure you get the best possible result.
