My legal matter concerning an application for a Domestic Violence Order was managed by Mr Thomas Allen. I am grateful for the outcome he obtained. Without Mr Allen and his ongoing support, I would be certain of a different result. It has been an extremely stressful period. Mr Allen’s astute ability to liaise on my behalf and his expertise was invaluable and for which I am grateful as I am now able to move forward. Thanking you
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Armstrong Legal and specifically Mr Thomas Allen for representing me in my recent case. At the outset, I would like to thank Mr Allen for the very professional delivery of his legal service. From the first time that I met Mr Allen, I was very impressed with his demeanour and delivery as he made me feel at ease knowing the severity of my case. Mr Allen not only gave me the possible positive outcomes of the case but also the realisation of the worst-case scenario as far as sentencing goes. … I will certainly be recommending Armstrong Legal to any of my friends or family needing representation in criminal matters. Thank you so very much.
Thank you for your representation and help. Fingers crossed for the next step and parole. I just want to say that from the first phone call to your office, your service has been outstanding and have put my mind at ease. I am glad I picked your number to ring.
Thank you Armstrong Legal, the lawyers that have helped over the past 3 years but more importantly, thank you to Thomas Allen for the major part you and Mr Buckland played. Cannot thank you enough. Cheers.
Hi all. I would like to thank Ms Lisa Riley for all her help with my legal issues this past month. It was the most harrowing experience of my life and thanks to her expertise, professionalism and knowledge of the law, I came out almost unscathed. I have no hesitation in recommending Lisa Riley and Armstrong Legal if you need help. The service is amazing and the cost was very minimal for the great outcome. Thank you Lisa for helping me in the most difficult time.
I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. My whole life I was thrown away, you made me feel like I did mean something. I could not have asked for a better lawyer. Your compassion and love for your job is inspiring. Your upfront and honesty were muchly appreciated, you are a beautiful person. Thank you for not giving up on me and thank you for all the work you put in. I wish you all the best for the future and I will be recommending you to everyone I know. You're amazing!!!!
I just wanted to thank you for representing me on Monday, I was overjoyed & relieved with the outcome. I don’t think it could have gone any better. All the best, I hope you got to celebrate this one instead after work, you forever made a difference in my life.
I know I thanked you before we parted company but please allow me to reiterate in writing my sincere deepest thanks for defending me in court today. … Armstrong Legal certainly has a great Lawyer you are a credit to the company and I'm quite sure you will secure a very successful future! … My Kindest Regards and Thanks
Throughout Angela has been the consummate professional. She maintained a calm, yet strong demeanour remained informative and completely open in her communication and took complete ownership of the situation. We felt confident we finally had an advocate to steer us out of the nightmare we were in, and she did so with great respect and sincerity. I cannot speak more highly of Angela. She has literally rescued our family from what looked very much like a hopeless future.
Words can’t describe how grateful I am to Trudie Cameron being my solicitor and to Andrew Tiedt presenting my case in the court. They both have been very supportive and amazingly professional and effective. I’ve got an absolutely fantastic outcome I couldn’t even dream about.
Soon after meeting Andrew I knew he was the solicitor I wanted to handle my matter. He immediately sprang into action which brought me stability and hope during a tumultuous time in my life. Andrew was never afraid to give me straight answers to my tough questions which is a true mark of integrity. He is clearly at ease in the court environment and I believe his calm and measured demeanour went a long way to helping me secure the best result from my day in court. I would certainly recommend you approach Andrew if you need assistance.
"Andrew Tiedt was very professional and considerate to personal circumstances and gave sound advice that resulted in the best outcome possible. Highly recommended."
High Court of Australia
The High Court of Australia is the highest court in the Australian legal system. Established in 1901, it decides appeals of special federal importance relating to all areas of law – not just criminal law. It hears appeals from other courts, and certain matters which begin in the High Court.
The High Court determines challenges to the constitutional validity of laws and hears appeals against decisions of the highest courts of each of the states (for example, the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal or Court of Appeal). The High Court also has the power of judicial review over laws passed by the Parliament of Australia and the parliaments of the states and territories
The High Court of Australia is located in the Parliamentary zone on Lake Burley Griffin in the Australian Capital Territory. The High Court also convenes periodically in all the Australian capital cities to hear special leave applications and, in some instances, hearings of appeals that have been granted special leave.
High Court Of Australia Appeals
An appeal can only be heard by the High Court of Australia where “special leave” has been granted. A person who wants to appeal to the High Court makes an application for “special leave” to appeal. Normally, the parties involved are represented by Senior Counsel and Junior Counsel who specialise in appellate work, instructed by solicitors. The application for special leave is submitted in writing with supporting documents and evidence. It is heard by three judges of the High Court and subject to strict time limits. Most applications for special leave are refused. The High Court can only hear an appeal if special leave is granted.
Where a matter is heard by the High Court of Australia, it will be heard by either five or seven Judges of the High Court. A matter before all seven High Court Judges is an appeal before the Full Court of the High Court. A matter may be heard before the Full Court if it involves interpreting the Constitution, considering whether a previous High Court decision remains good law or should be departed from, or where the court considers the law involved is one of major public importance.
Prior to the High Court of Australia hearing a matter, written submissions and appeal books must be filed. There are strict rules for the formatting, content, referencing and filing of such documents. If the documents are not perfect, they will often be rejected by the court.
The High Court hears appeals relating to all different areas of law including criminal matters, immigration matters, contractual matters, commercial disputes and constitutional matters. Appeals can relate to the way in which legislation is interpreted and applied, the rules of evidence and whether certain evidence should, or should not have been, admitted into evidence in a case. They can also relate to divergence or discrepancies in the way in which different states apply legal principles.
Armstrong Legal has instructed prominent Senior Counsel and successfully sought and been granted special leave to appeal to the High Court. We have also appeared at hearings of appeals to the High Court of Australia.
