Traffic offences can have a huge impact on your life, your family and your employment. Our Coolangatta traffic lawyers are experienced in helping you deal with the consequences of traffic law charges and navigating the complex system of penalties, ranging from loss of demerit points and large fines to lengthy licence suspensions and sometimes even imprisonment.
Getting access to qualified and professional legal advice on your traffic matter helps ensure that any penalty you face does not cause excessive hardship to you or your family. Our experienced traffic lawyers can provide you with an early free case assessment through our Legal Hotline that operates seven days a week from 7 am to midnight and put you in touch with one of our local traffic lawyers in Coolangatta to represent you in court.
It pays to have an expert in your corner when dealing with all aspects of Queensland traffic law, including:
- Work licences;
- Special hardship licences;
- Licence disqualifications;
- Dangerous driving;
- Speeding offences; and
- What to do following a traffic accident.
We recommend booking a 1 hour conference with your Coolangatta lawyer before going to court. You will get expert advice on what you should do, the likely outcome and any preparation you need to do beforehand. You will also get a fixed quote on the cost for you to be represented in Coolangatta Magistrates Court on the day.
If you prefer, you can meet your lawyer at Coolangatta Magistrates Court without the need for a conference beforehand. Some examples of when this will suit you are adjournments, simple pleas or when your case is listed for directions from the court (not a final hearing). And if you are not on bail, you may not even need to attend.
Coolangatta Magistrates Court is located at Musgrave Street, Coolangatta, only about 100 meters from the beautiful Coolangatta Beach. If you’re driving from Brisbane, Coolangatta is about a one hour drive south down the M1.
Public transport from Brisbane to Coolangatta is not easy. A train from Brisbane to Varsity Lakes will take you about 50 minutes and then you’ll need to catch a bus from there about another 19 kms.
Go To Court Lawyers Coolangatta have an office at Shop 4, 28-32 Minjungbul Drive, Tweed Heads, just 7 kilometres from the Coolangatta Magistrates Court.
Driving unlicensed is never a good idea, but what you may not know is that there are different types of unlicensed driving.
Our Coolangatta traffic lawyers can advise you on the possible penalties of your unlicensed driving and what sort of result you can expect from going to court. They can also help you present your case as to any defences or reasons why you should not be punished as harshly, depending on the circumstances of your case. For more general information, read our article on unlicensed driving in Queensland or contact or Legal Hotline.
Serious traffic offences
Operating a motor vehicle dangerously is a serious traffic offence and can lead to imprisonment. The severity of the penalty increases if there are alcohol or drugs, excessive speed or previous convictions involved. Penalties are significantly harsher if the dangerous driving resulted in grievous bodily harm or death.
Our Coolangatta traffic lawyers can advise you on the penalties you are likely to face when appearing in court, and go with you on the day to make an argument as to why the court should show you leniency. Many factors can go into determining a serious traffic offence penalty and having an expert with you to ensure that all bases are covered can significantly impact the outcome.
Professional representation can make all the difference
Our experienced traffic lawyers in Coolangatta are well versed in the complicated penalties of traffic offences and can help you navigate the system with the minimum of stress while achieving the best possible results.
As an unrepresented person before the courts, you may miss out on an opportunity to ask for a lighter penalty. Do not risk your life or your livelihood. Call our no-obligation Legal Hotline to discuss your options today.
