    Our team of experienced criminal lawyers are on call to assist you, no matter the situation. We specialise in all things criminal law and work hard to ensure you receive the best possible outcome. If you are charged with a criminal offence, be sure to get in contact with us today!

    The team at Australian Criminal Defence handle all types of criminal offences, including drunk driving, drug possession, supply drug offences, domestic violence, sexual assaults, fraud matters to the most serious matters, including murder and drug importation throughout New South Wales and appear at all levels of the court system including the Children, Local, District and Supreme Court.

    Our team of lawyers include specialist drug lawyers who deal with the most serious of drug matters and have secured unlikely acquittals in a range of matters, including commercial supply and drug importation. Together with our select team of barristers and forensic experts, we work as a team, drawing on decades of criminal law experience.

    Some criminal lawyers take a wait-and-see approach. They stall until the first court date or until they receive the police brief of evidence before investigating and working up your case.

    By contrast, we believe there’s no time to waste. The most critical window for defence work may be the first few days following an arrest or even prior to formal charges being filed. By getting to work immediately, we can often locate favourable defence evidence and witnesses and get a “head start” towards defending the charges.

    At Australian Criminal Defence, our defence lawyers give your case our full attention to ensure you are treated fairly under the criminal justice system, and our team has built a reputation of having serious cases dropped prior to the matter reaching a jury trial.

    Whether you are facing a minor offence such as drug possession and are hoping to avoid a criminal conviction or facing a more serious charge like drug supply or sexual assault, contact the experienced team at Australian Criminal Defence to give you the best chance of successfully defending your charges.

     

    Australian Criminal Defence have the experience to help you get the best results possible.

    Joe has been very helpful with providing me with advice with a legal issue I needed assistance with. Been able to get in contact with him when I needed, wasn’t trying to take as much money from me like how other legal professionals would, his main aim was to provide the best legal service he could. I would highly recommend him.
