Our solicitor Lisa Taylor represented a teacher charged with driving under the influence in the Murgon Magistrates Court.
The man had passed out in his car at a petrol station on Melbourne Cup Day and when police attended and breathalysed him had a BAC of 0.207.
Ms Taylor emphasised her client’s remorse for his actions, his prior good record and his plea of guilty on the first occasion. The man had also completed a Traffic Offenders Program and had been cycling to and from work since losing his license.
The client was fined $1100 and disqualified from driving for eight months. Following the disqualification period, he will be required to have an interlock device fitted to his car.
The court did not record a conviction due to the effect this could have on his work as a teacher.

Being able to gain some initial advice on the phone and then being able to book someone for the same day for an hour was fantastic. We were not pressured to front up with a heap of money and were given the option on whether or not to engage them. We were able to make decisions and they were happy to inform us of the process and encouraged us to handle the areas that we could ourselves to help reduce cost.

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,
