Success Stories and Publications

  • Reparation Orders (WA)
  • Simple Offences, Crimes and ‘Either Way’ Offences (WA)

    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.

BEST LAWYERS EVER. Shame they don’t have the same taste in coffee as me, but I’ll let that pass. Thanks for looking after me guys – smiling as I leave this review. I’d give 10 stars but Google won’t allow it *sigh*

Communication was great from start to finish. I cannot fault them in any way, the only solicitor to go above and beyond. I would recommend anyone to use this firm, incredible. Such professionalism, they are right on top of getting you JUSTICE, not stealing your money like all of the others. They know their law, they show it in court and they advise you every step of the way, your never in the dark. I wish we had of found you before wasting money on countless other solicitors. You're only as good as your solicitor, that's the best advice I can give anyone. They have given so much of our life back, we were going to give up, we thought we had lost, then we found them, how lucky were we. Thank you so much.

We visited the practice and I can't remember the lawyer's name but they were attentive, listened, and gave sound advice. Thankfully we didn't need to take the matter further, but the advice set our mind at ease. We were happy with the service. Thank you
