Conviction for a criminal offence can have significant consequences for you and for your family. Even conviction for a minor offence can seriously impact on 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 hold before you discuss anything about your case with police and before you are required to 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 and often formidable processes of the criminal justice system. It may be possible for our expert lawyers to have the charges you are facing dropped or reduced to something less serious.
Whether you are under investigation in relation to a suspected offence or have been charged, your request for bail has been refused, or maybe you want to appeal a prior conviction, we are there for you.

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 Melbourne, 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 Melbourne, 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.
