Success Stories and Publications

Non Conviction for Drug Supply Charge

Our 28-year-old client was charged with drug supply in relation to MDMA and a drug possession charge in relation to cocaine. After careful examination of the brief of evidence which revealed inconsistencies between the CCTV footage and statements of witnesses, Elizabeth negotiated with the prosecuting solicitor from the DPP to have the supply charge dropped. Our client pleaded 'guilty' to possession of the cocaine and Elizabeth persuaded the magistrate to deal with our client under 'section 10' meaning that our client avoided a criminal record altogether.

This case highlights the importance of seeking legal advice before entering any pleas in court, and ensure you choose a lawyer who will fight to get your charges dropped early where possible, saving you the expense of a lengthy trial.

No Conviction Recorded Despite Previous Convictions

Our client ended up in court after he was apprehended by police driving while his licence was suspended due to non-payment of fines. He had already previously been to court for a drink driving offence for which he had been convicted and lost his licence. Through careful preparation, we were able to present a compelling argument to the magistrate to explain the circumstances surrounding the offence. The magistrate at Fairfield Local Court dismissed the matter without a conviction being recorded which meant that no disqualification from driving was imposed. Our client was, therefore, able to keep on driving, which was an essential requirement of his job.

This case highlights the importance of having strong legal representation in court to ensure that your case is presented in the most favourable light.

Section 10 No Conviction For Mid-Range Drink Driving

The majority of people found guilty of Drive with Mid Range PCA receive a criminal conviction and lose their licence for at least 6 months. Despite this, we were able to persuade the magistrate of Blacktown Local Court to deal with our 70-year-old client by way of a section 10, allowing him to avoid a criminal conviction and to keep on driving.

Despite the Magistrate being initially unimpressed that our client had washed down his medicine with some bourbon and coke the morning after a night of heavy drinking, Elizabeth was thoroughly familiar with our clients case and was able to fully explain the circumstances surrounding the offence, as well as assisting our client in preparing necessary subjective materials that were tendered in court.

This case highlights the importance of having strong legal representation who know your case and can present it in the most compelling light.

Mid-Range DUI Avoids Conviction & Loss of Licence

Our 28-year-old client came to the attention of police due to him exceeding the speed limit, and he then failed a roadside breath test. Back at the station, he blew 0.100 and was charged with Drive with Mid Range PCA. Our client's traffic record was less than perfect, and his licence had previously been suspended for accrual of demerit points. Elizabeth assisted him to prepare subjective materials to be presented to the magistrate in court.

In front of the magistrate, Elizabeth paid careful attention to the particular personal circumstances of our client and his need for a licence. As a result of Elizabeth's presentation of our client's case, the magistrate was persuaded to deal with our client by way of a 'section 10', which meant no fine, no criminal record, and no driving disqualification period for our client.

This case highlights the importance of having strong legal representation and preparation, taking into account your personal circumstances in order to obtain the best possible result.

Excellent representation and the best outcome I could have asked for. Went to court for a driving while suspended charge, fantastic during the whole ordeal. Not only was the fine waived, but more importantly I was able to keep my license and stay on the road.

I urgently needed a lawyer for my second day's court attending. I called Go To Court Lawyers at 8am, and I secured an appointment in the afternoon. My lawyer gave me the advice and encouraged me to deal with it on my own, as I am unemployed and my case was pretty small. I appreciate the honesty, his consideration of my financial situation and his encouragement.

Ows it goin. Yes I was relieved to b able to speak of my experience and b listend to with open minds and of a non-bias approach. All the staff I av spoken to at GTC av been friendly and helpful. I don't do any of this as a cover up of any of my behavior, I am fed up with bein lied to and about. Very nice fellas and I av confidence in confiding with/to em both. Ther assistant is a nice lady too. Has given me extra time of his to help and I am very appreciative of him doin so.

Thanku for ur svc's,
