The team at Australian Criminal Defence handle all types of criminal offences including drink 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.

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, often we can 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.

What Kind of Experience Does The Criminal Lawyer Have? If you ever find yourself in a case where there may be a criminal charge against you, the chances are that you are going to be scared for your life. There were so many different scenarios that could lead to that, and you need to find someone who has experience dealing with your specific situation. For example, you cannot expect someone who dies with DUI cases regularly to work well on a sexual assault case. When you are shortlisting, be sure to ask for relevant experience and see if the Sydney criminal lawyer you are considering has what you need.

How Well Reputed Are They? This is an extremely important question as it will provide you with the easiest way to either consider or exclude someone from your search. If someone has a good reputation and serves their clients properly, they will probably treat you the same way. The same applies to bad lawyers as well, meaning that if a lawyer is known to cause problems of any kind, then they might end up doing the same for you as well. Always look for a Sydney criminal lawyer who has a repetition of satisfying their customers and winning cases for them as well.

Do They Have the Relevant Credentials? An easy way to find out if the Sydney criminal lawyer you are considering can handle your cases is by checking for the qualifications and experience that they have. Ask for credentials from the lawyer you are thinking of hiring and see what educational background and experience they have had. The best lawyers always go to the top institutions, but the right ones usually have streaks and a great track record in the courtroom overall.

Are They Providing Guarantees? The simple fact is that you cannot control what happens in a courtroom once a hearing starts. Every side can only present their arguments and evidence and then it is up to the judge and jury to decide who is right and who is wrong. If a Sydney criminal lawyer provides you with guarantees for your cases, then it will be best to remain sceptical and stay away from them if you can. Such promises mean that they are either not confident about their performance or doing something illegal which should also be reported.

Are They Within Your Budget? Last but certainly not least, you also need to consider the budget you have for the case. The right criminal lawyer for you is also the person charging you an amount that you can afford to pay. While it does help to push your budget a little if you are getting a great deal, going out of the way for it is never a good idea. Talk about your budget openly and check if there are any hidden fees to avoid issues in the future.

Criminal cases are no joke, and you want to hire the most suitable Sydney criminal lawyer that you can. The factors defined here should help you find the right person and make sure that you win the case that you are in.
