Success Stories and Publications
Our solicitor Jemin Jo represented a middle-aged couple who were embroiled in a long civil litigation matter against a real estate agent and several of its employees for, amongst other things, misleading and deceptive conduct.
With our representation, the couple was able to resolve the dispute on favourable terms and the matter was resolved without going to trial.
This case illustrates the importance of knowledge of the civil litigation process, negotiation skills and the value of a solicitor like Jemin Jo in reaching a favourable outcome for clients. The settlement resulted in significant cost savings for the couple and avoided the risk of having to pay the other party’s costs in the event that the couple was unsuccessful at trial.
Our solicitor, Jemin Jo, represented 58-year-old man charged with Assault Occasioning Bodily Harm (AOBH).
Despite written submissions being made to the prosecution to discontinue the charge, the matter was set down for trial.
Upon receiving the brief of evidence, Mr Jo assessed that there was insufficient evidence to convict the accused of AOBH. However, there was relatively strong evidence that an offence of common assault was committed.
Mr Jo successfully negotiated with the prosecution for the AOBH charge to be replaced with a common assault charge if the accused pleaded guilty. Subsequently at sentencing, the accused pleaded guilty and was only penalized with a conditional release order whereby there would be no penalty as long as the accused did not commit a further offence for 12 months.
This case illustrates the importance of trial preparatory and negotiation skills and the value of a solicitor like Jemin Jo in reaching favourable plea negotiations. This eliminated any risk of the man being found guilty of AOBH at the trial.
Our solicitor Jemin Jo represented a man in his late 20s in a District Court sentencing hearing, where the client pleaded guilty to a charge of Aggravated Grievous Bodily Harm.
Ordinarily, grievous bodily harm offences, particularly those of a domestic violence nature, are penalized with an immediate term of imprisonment.
However, as part of his submissions, Mr. Jo was able to present to the court numerous mitigating factors including the man’s personal circumstance, the steps he had taken to address his anger management problems and his prior good character. With the benefit of a favourable pre-sentence report and a psychological report, the Judge sentenced the man to a term of imprisonment for 13 months but suspended the term for a period of 18 months with supervision requirements.
This case illustrates the importance and the value of a solicitor like Jemin Jo in reaching favourable sentencing results.
Our solicitor, Jemin Jo, represented a young man who pleaded guilty in the District Court to a number of drug offences including the attempted sale and supply of MDMA.
Charges relating to the sale or supply of drugs are generally penalized with a term of immediate imprisonment. However, in this case, with the benefit of favourable pre-sentence report and psychological report, Mr Jo was able to present to the court numerous mitigating factors including the man’s personal circumstance, young age and steps he had taken to address his drug-related problems.
The sentencing Judge penalized the man with a term of imprisonment of 9 months, which was suspended for a period of 12 months with supervision conditions.
This case illustrates the value of a solicitor like Jemin Jo in reaching a favourable sentencing result.
Jemin Jo represented a man in his mid-20s, who was facing two counts of selling or supplying a prohibited drug, namely MDMA.
Mr Jo sought to resolve the matter, making representations to the prosecution for the withdrawal of one charge with the client to plead guilty to the other. However, this was refused and the matter was set to proceed to trial.
On the day before the trial was to commence and after reviewing the brief of evidence, Mr. Jo was able to convince the prosecution to discontinue their prosecution of the first count. An agreement was also reached that the prosecution would not oppose an application to have the conviction for the second count declared spent.
Our client pleaded guilty to one count of supplying a prohibited drug and was sentenced to a fine. The conviction was declared spent, meaning the circumstances in which it would have to be disclosed was limited.
This case illustrates the importance of good mediatory and negotiation skills and the value of a solicitor like Jemin Jo in reaching favourable plea negotiations. This eliminated any risk of the man being found guilty of both counts if the matter proceeded to trial.
