Success Stories and Publications

Community Based Order For Drug Offences

Our solicitor Anne Ford successfully represented a man who was charged with several drug offences, one of which was Cultivating a Prohibited Plant With Intent to Sell or Supply (499 grams of cannabis).

After extensive negotiations with WA Police Prosecutions Unit and the Investigating Officer our client was spared a jail term and was sentenced to a Community Based Order for a total of 1 year, with no fine or costs ordered by the court.

Anne was able to achieve an excellent outcome for her client in this matter.

Extraordinary Driver’s License For Drink Driving Client

Our solicitor Anne Ford successfully represented a man charged with driving with a BAC of 0.08%. The client received the minimum fine, a loss of license backdated to the Police Roadside Disqualification date and Court Costs. Six weeks later Ms Ford succeeded in obtaining a court order which allowed our client to be granted an Extraordinary Driver’s License.

The client was a young father who had recently started up his own business.  Without a license he would not have been able to work, financially provide for his family and would have had to sell his business. The client’s business was dependent upon him having a license to get to and from work and throughout the course of his day.  On this basis, supported by evidence, Ms Ford submitted to the court that the client should receive an Extraordinary Driver’s Licence. He was back on the road within 6 weeks of his drink driving conviction.

Great Outcome For Client on Driving Charges

Our solicitor Anne Ford successfully represented a man charged with Providing False or Misleading Personal Details contrary to the Road Traffic (Administration) Act and driving with No Authority to Drive contrary to the Road Traffic Act.

After Anne made submissions to the Court, the client received a small fine, a license disqualification and a Spent Conviction. Had the client not received a Spent Conviction, he would have not been able to continue in his employment due to having a disclosable conviction against his name.

Testimonials

Had a really good experience with Danielle on the phone. She listened to my situation including being hesitant to make an appointment due to a bad experience with another law firm weeks before. She was really reassuring and said that she was certain they would be able to help. She took great notes which I saw at the appointment. When I showed up, the lawyer was aware of the situation and we spent the time addressing solutions and drafting documents.

My Lawyer was very professional and considerate when seeing for the first time. Although I can't afford a private Lawyer at this time I have found a way. Because the stress I was under was far too much for me to take on alone while trying to start a new life with my 5 children. I highly recommend this company!
