It is critical that any person who is facing sex offence allegations or criminal charges ensures they have the best legal team on their side – from the date the allegation is first made.
Where a person is charged, it’s important to have a lawyer assisting with the charging process, decisions about whether or not to participate in interviews or forensic procedures, the making of a bail application and throughout the criminal matter – regardless of whether the client plans to defend the matter, or admit guilt.
Our lawyers regularly provide legal advice in relation to the management and handling of allegations, police investigative techniques that clients should be aware of and the charging and court process. We have people on hand to provide advice in relation to dealing with police, bail applications, the police brief of evidence and whether or not the charges should be defended at court.
