Southport Criminal Lawyers: Local experts in Criminal Law
The Southport team of experienced criminal lawyers are here to help.
Being questioned by the police or being charged can be an extremely stressful experience. The answers you give police during questioning will be used against you if you end up in court.
What is more, the answers you give in questioning are often the very evidence the police will use to lay charges against you. Convictions, no matter how minor, can have serious consequences for current and future employment, overseas travel and even a simple Blue Card to work with children.
The Go to Court criminal law team are focused on giving you the best outcome you can achieve in your circumstances. Our Southport criminal lawyers provide professional advice tailored to your situation.
The criminal justice system can seem to be a convoluted minefield. We have hundreds of articles to assist you with common criminal law issues, written and edited by lawyers for people without law degrees.
Some pages our Southport clients find helpful
Our legal pages and articles are written and edited by lawyers. While we do everything we can to ensure the relevance to your situation, we know everyone’s circumstances are different.
Some of our most popular criminal law articles include:
- Assault charges, the types, penalties, and possible defences;
- The most common criminal defences in Queensland; and
- Applying for bail in Queensland;
- What to do if asked to provide a police statement;
- Information about public nuisance offences in Queensland;
- Information about domestic violence orders (also known as restraining or protection orders) in Queensland.
As webpages can only give general advice, we recommend you contact a qualified lawyer to discuss your particular problem. Before talking with police, make sure you contact a Southport lawyer to prevent unwittingly giving them information to charge you with.
If you still have questions, our Legal Hotline is staffed by criminal lawyers who know how the law applies in Queensland. Our Legal Hotline lawyers are available from 7 am until midnight, 7 days a week.
