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.

Section 10 No Conviction for Drug Supply Charge

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.

Philip said that Elizabeth gave him really good advice which he intends to follow. I don't know when they next speak but I am keeping an eye on things. I have full confidence in Elizabeth.

Very positive. I was really impressed by how the different jurisdictions were explained to me. One was a Civil matter and the other, the Family Court. Until the explanation I was confused and that is what was causing me distress. I am relieved to understand the difference and that is because it was explained to me in a way that I could understand. Well Worth the time and money for that peace of mind. Impressed with the follow up too. Many thanks.
