Our solicitor Amran Azad represented a 23-year-old male at the Dandenong Magistrates Court on 19 September 2018 in relation to his eighth breach of an Intervention Order.
The client had had an Intervention Order taken out against him to protect his family as a result of an unfortunate death of a family member which had caused his life to spiral.
The maximum penalty for breaching an Intervention Order is a fine of $38,685.60 or imprisonment for two years. The client came to our office following a court attendance the day prior, during which a magistrate indicated that it was likely that he would receive a term of imprisonment.
Our representation resulted in the court allowing the client a deferred sentence, where upon successful completion of a course, he would receive an adjourned undertaking.
That result was achieved through summary case conferencing, where the Victorian Police reconsidered the summary of facts alleged, and then explaining to the court the personal circumstances of the client.
This case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Amran Azad who will give time and attention to all aspects of your case to achieve the best outcome possible.
Our solicitor Amran Azad represented a 21-year-old male at the Broadmeadows Magistrates Court on 5 June 2018 in relation to a charge of driving whilst suspended
The client had moved interstate for work but had failed to re-direct his mail from his family home. He had accumulated fines and his licence had been suspended without his knowledge.
The maximum penalty for driving whilst suspended is a fine of 30 penalty units ($4,757.10) or a term of imprisonment of four months. Although there is no legislatively prescribed licence loss, the court can also impose a further term of suspension.
The prosecution submitted to the court that such driving offences are strict liability offences and that it was our client’s responsibility to ensure that he was licensed. It submitted that he should be penalised for the offence.
Our representation resulted in the court finding the charge being found proven but dismissed without any penalty. That result was achieved by Ms Azad providing details regarding our client’s personal circumstances, our client’s past and factors affecting his current circumstances. She also highlighted the detrimental effects a loss of licence would have on the stability and structure of our client’s life.
This case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Amran Azad who will understand your personal circumstances, past history and factors concerning the charge to present your case to the court in the best possible light.
Our solicitor Amran Azad represented a 28-year-old male who had received a notice from the Licensing and Regulation Division proposing to cancel his security licence.
This proposal was made on the basis that our client had been accused of committing a serious sexual offence against a minor. Our client was a risk of losing his licence and his employment which he had held for six years.
Our representation and submissions resulted in our client’s licence being reinstated and he was able to recommence work.
This case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Amran Azad who will give your matter the attention and advocacy it deserves to ensure your rights are protected.
