It can be very stressful and overwhelming to be questioned by police, or charged with an offence. This is particularly true if you have never been involved in a similar situation and are unfamiliar with the criminal law process.

It is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible after a situation arises. This will ensure that you understand the criminal law process, and your rights and obligations throughout any investigation and/or subsequent charge.

The criminal law process ordinarily involves one or more appearances at Court. It is important that you seek legal advice prior to going to Court to ensure that you understand the Court process and the implications of your actions at Court.
