Success Stories and Publications
Our solicitor Tracy Albin has successfully represented a woman charged with her third offence of No Authority to Drive contrary to the Road Traffic Act 1974 (WA). Typically, a subsequent charge will carry a term of suspension of the offender’s drivers licence. In this case, Ms Albin successfully made submissions to the Court and the client received a small fine and no licence suspension. That client is now able to apply for a driver’s licence.
A solicitor like Tracy understands her clients’ needs and the impacts that a loss of licence could have on them. Through diligence and determination, Tracy was able to achieve an excellent outcome for her client.
Our solicitor Tracy Albin successfully achieved a downgraded charge for a young man charged initially with possession of a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply. Following the downgrade of the charge, Ms Albin also obtained a spent conviction for the young man for his two charges of possession of a prohibited drug and possession of drug paraphernalia. The overall penalty received included 2 small fines and court costs. This was an excellent result, which allows the young man to continue trouble-free in his employment.
The man was also referred to the Pre-Sentence Opportunity Program, where he underwent several sessions of counselling and he began to engage more actively with his peers and his family, and has since ceased all drug use. This referral to the program by the solicitor has enabled a favourable outcome both in and out of court for this client.
Tracy’s diligence, ability to understand the needs of her clients and her persuasive submissions were key to receiving this excellent result.
