Our Approach to Bail Applications
Because it is more difficult to get bail after bail has been refused, we believe that an application for bail should not be made unless you and your lawyers are thoroughly prepared. This may involve adjourning your matter until affidavits are taken to prove employment and hardship, valuations and bank approvals are obtained and acceptable people are available to deposit cash or security. With a large criminal law team, we are able to gather all of this evidence in a short period of time.
The rule against repeat bail applications can be extremely harsh and result in people remaining in gaol when they should not be. Statistics show that many people who are bail refused are either found not guilty or receive a sentence that does not include gaol.
WHERE TO NEXT?
If you suspect that you may be under investigation, or if you have been charged with an offence, it is vital to get competent legal advice as early as possible. Our lawyers are highly specialised in criminal law and will be able to guide you through the process while dealing with the various authorities related to your matter.
