Success Stories and Publications

Further Community Corrections Order Imposed After Breach

Our solicitor Joseph Palamara represented a 49-year-old male at the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court on 31 October in relation to failing to comply with the conditions of Community Corrections Order (CCO).

The case involved our client failing to complete his 200 hours of the community work, in addition to re-offending by committing a similar offence within two months of the Community Corrections Order being imposed.

Our representation resulted in the court imposing a new Community Corrections Order with more conditions for a period of 18 months. As well as other terms of the CCO, our client will have to undergo a mental health assessment and treatment as well as an offending behaviour change program.

That result was achieved by preparing the case thoroughly. We paid careful attention to our client’s personal circumstances and collected a large amount of evidence in support of our case that he was an otherwise good person who had failed to comply with the previous order in place due to changes in his personal circumstances. We relied on case law to support our argument the court should give greater weight to rehabilitation in this case and that the court could properly extend our client unusual leniency.

This case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Joseph Palamara who will continue to care for his client’s circumstances and will work hard to ensure their case is prepared and presented in a way that ensures the court gives full effect to every factor in the client’s favour.

Community Corrections Order for Range of Offences

Our solicitor Joseph Palamara represented a 26-year-old at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 16th November in relation to damaging property, contravening a Family Violence Intervention Order and distributing an intimate image of another person.

The case involved our client engaging in criminal conduct on several occasions. The conduct involved damaging property, contravening a Family Violence Intervention Order, stalking, threatening to distribute an intimate image and distributing an intimate image of another person.

Our representation resulted in the court imposing a Community Corrections order for a period of 12 months.

This result was achieved by preparing the case thoroughly.  We paid careful attention to our client’s personal circumstances and collected a large amount of evidence in support of our case that he was an otherwise good person and had taken steps to address his offending. We relied on case law to support our argument that the court should give great weight to the changed circumstances of the client and presented case law that supported our argument that the court could properly extend our client unusual leniency.

This case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Joseph Palamara who will continue to care for his client’s circumstances and will work hard to ensure their case is prepared and presented in a way that ensures the court gives full effect to every factor in the client’s favour.

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. I must say the "system" needs a re-vamp in regards to the person protected and or application and of VRO's to b held accountable for communication during an order of which they have askd for to protect them... Thanku for ur svc's,
