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."
Conspiracy to Murder (NSW)
In New South Wales it is an offence to plan to murder a person or to participate in planning the murder of someone. A person can be charged with the offence of conspiracy to murder if they arrange for someone to murder a person, encourage or persuade someone to murder a person or if they participate in the planning of the murder of a person.
The offence of conspiracy to murder is contained in common law principles. The offence is also codified in section 26 of the New South Wales Crimes Act 1900.
What actions may constitute conspiracy to murder?
Examples of conspiracy to murder include:
- Hiring a hitman to kill your parents;
- Telling your lover to poison his wife so you can be together;
- Begging your brother to convince his friend to kill your drug dealer who you owe money;
- Agreeing to purchase a gun so that your friend can kill his girlfriend’s new lover.
What must be proven?
To find a person guilty of conspiracy to murder the prosecution must prove each of the following matters beyond a reasonable doubt:
- That the accused and at least one other person conspired or agreed to commit murder; or
- That the accused solicited, encouraged, proposed, persuaded or endeavoured to persuade at least one other person to commit murder.
A person can defend a charge of conspiracy to murder but arguing:

The offence is a strictly indictable offence and must be finalised in the NSW Supreme Court.
