Anastasia Qvist is an outstanding lawyer. My criminal law situation (family violence order) was difficult, complex and Ana's diligence saved me as I was going through the most difficult period of my life. Ana is down to earth, commonsense and she even kept our costs to a minimum. She is a skilled litigator and knows the ins and outs of the ACT Magistrates Court. She dealt skillfully with the DPP and is an excellent negotiator. You will get a fair representation and she genuinely cares about her clients. She has my complete recommendation. The lady goes to bat for her clients.
I would strongly recommend Anastasia to anyone who is seeking legal representation. As a first-time offender who was charged with a Level 2 Drink Driving offence, she walked me through every step of the matter and was very upfront and clear on all aspects of my case. She was always accessible when I needed advice. Her approach and advice were excellent. Under her representation, I received the best possible outcome and managed to avoid a criminal conviction. She was a pleasure to deal with throughout the whole matter.
Anastasia Qvist was very professional and helpful in every step of my matter. I got a very good outcome and I can’t thank you enough for your hard work and the Armstrong Legal team in Canberra. I would highly recommend her!!!
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."
Can You Apply For Bail More Than Once?
When a person is charged with criminal offences, they may be granted bail or remanded in custody. When a person is granted bail, this means that they are allowed to live in the community under certain conditions until their criminal matter is finalised. Bail may be granted or refused by the police or by a court. When a person applies to a court for bail, they are generally restricted to applying for bail once, except when particular circumstances exist. This article outlines the circumstances in which a person can apply for bail more than once.
Can you apply for bail more than once?
The courts generally cannot hear a second bail application after an accused has been refused bail. However, there are a number of exceptions to this. A person may make a second bail application if:
- They were not legally represented on the occasion of their first application, or
- Fresh information relevant to the grant of bail is to be presented, or
- Circumstances relevant to the grant of bail have changed, or
- The person is a child and the previous application was made on a first appearance for the offence
If a fresh application is made, it is treated as an entirely new hearing. So even a minor “change in circumstances” can result in a very different outcome. Your lawyer will assist you in identifying fresh information or circumstances on which to ground a second bail application.
bail applications in the higher courts
If a person has been refused bail in the Local or District Court and there are no grounds justifying a further application to that court, a bail application may be made to the Supreme Court. Supreme Court bail applications generally take longer and are heard more formally than bail applications in the Local Court.
A decision by the Supreme Court to refuse bail can be appealed to the Court of Criminal Appeal.
