    Suspended Fine For Company In Breach of Workers Compensation Laws

    Our Solicitor Courtney Ashton represented a private company which was prosecuted by WorkCover WA. The client was the owner and operator of a beauty salon which was required under the Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981 (WA) to maintain a current workers compensation insurance policy.

    Ms Ashton was engaged to represent the company at the sentencing hearing.

    On the day of the hearing, the client entered a plea of guilty and Ms Ashton delivered a plea in mitigation and asked the court to impose a suspended fine due to the current economic climate. Pursuant to the Sentencing Act 1995, any fine imposed by the court on a body corporate is five times the amount that an individual would be fined.

    Based on Courtney’s submissions to the court, the client was sentenced to a fine, suspended for 12 months.

    This case illustrates the importance of legal representation at court hearings and in particularly sentencing hearings where the client is a body corporate and faces significantly tougher penalties for a failure to comply with its obligations.

    Spent Conviction For Driving Offence

    Our solicitor Courtney Ashton recently attended Perth Magistrates Court for a client who had been charged with driving with a prescribed illicit substance in their oral fluid or blood.

    The client was concerned that they would lose their approved manager's licence if they were required to disclose the conviction to the regulatory body.

    As a result of our submissions, the client was granted a spent conviction order. As a result of the spent conviction order being granted, the client is no longer required to disclose the conviction and is at no risk of losing her approved manager's licence.

I've had a very unique case that required an expert advice in a very short notice as I was about to board a plane for an overseas offshore. I desperately discussed my case with Go to Court and surprisingly I've got a call from one of the greatest lawyer ever on Friday night saying he's happy to see me over weekend. Yeah, over the weekend!!! He sat with me on Saturday, reviewed my case and promised he will get back to me before my flights on Sunday. Long story short, not only I was pleased with their professional commitment, my case was resolved sooner than expected. Such a great team, such a great expertise. Highly recommended.
