Conviction for a criminal offence can have significant consequences for you and for your family. Even a minor offence can seriously impact your career and limit your employment opportunities. It can also preclude you from travelling outside of Australia.
It is important, then, that you understand precisely what you are facing and what rights you have before you discuss anything about your case with police and before you present at court.
Obtaining strong legal advice early maximises the likelihood of a good outcome. Your lawyer can help you to decide whether you want to plead guilty to the charge or whether you wish to fight it. They can help you through the complex processes of the criminal justice system such as applying for bail and running a voir dire. It may also be possible for our lawyers to negotiate with the prosecution for some of the charges to be withdrawn replaced with lesser charges.
Whether you are under investigation in relation to a suspected offence or have been charged, your application for bail has been refused, or you want to appeal a decision, we are there for you.

Drink driving lawyers
Drink and drug driving offences can be very serious. Aside from the risk to yourself and others, they can involve significant penalties including heavy fines and the loss of your licence. Repeat offences, or those which result in, for example, a fatality or serious injury, can also mean a term of imprisonment.
Many drivers charged with these offences have not had prior experience with the criminal justice system and can find it very daunting and stressful. If you have been charged with a drink or drug driving offence and are facing the prospect of appearing before the court, obtaining quality legal advice is important so that you know what your rights are, what the process will be, and how best to proceed.
At Go To Court Lawyers North Lakes, our staff are experts in drink and drug driving law and can walk you through each step of the process. They will provide you with helpful advice and strong representation to ensure you receive the best possible outcome. They may even be able to advocate for the court to recognise drivers’ education as part of your sentence so that any other penalties will be minimised, and to help you to avoid committing another similar offence.
Traffic offences such as hooning, driving in excess of the speed limit, driving without a licence, or failing to stop for police, carry potentially hefty fines and can result in the loss of your licence. It is important you obtain high-quality advice as early in the process as possible so that you know what you are facing and how best to manage it.
At Go To Court Lawyers North Lakes, we understand what your licence means to you and your family, and know that losing it will likely cause you hardship. We also understand that a charge does not necessarily mean you are guilty.
After having considered all aspects of your matter, our highly-skilled and insightful lawyers will advise you of your options, including whether or not you have a viable defence. They will lead you through the traffic law process, and, if no defence is available, help you to obtain the lowest penalty possible in your circumstances. In the event that you lose your licence, we may also be able to assist you to obtain a special or extraordinary licence so that you can maintain your employment.
Facing a charge of drink driving, driving under the influence (DUI) or driving whilst intoxicated (DWI) can be a daunting experience. In the most severe cases, a prison sentence can be imposed. There is also a minefield of mandatory licence suspension and disqualification periods to navigate, depending on the circumstances and the nature of the drink driving.
Our Marsden lawyers understand that you just want to get back to your life and protect your greatest independence – your licence. By speaking with a Go To Court drink driving lawyer, you will have access to first class representation and realistic advice.
