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."
Robbery Offences (NSW)
There are a number of robbery offences in New South Wales. Robbery means stealing in circumstances that involve the use of force or the threatened use of force. Robbery is what is known as a ‘composite offence’, meaning that it is both a property offence and a violent offence.
Robbery offences are governed by the Crimes Act 1900 and can attract lengthy periods of imprisonment.
Robbery/stealing from the person
In New South Wales, it is an offence to commit a robbery or steal from the person. This offence carries a maximum penalty of 14 years imprisonment.
Armed Robbery occurs when a person commits a robbery while armed with an offensive weapon. It carries a maximum penalty of imprisonment for 20 years. Aggravated Armed Robbery occurs when a robbery is committed by a person who is armed with a dangerous weapon. Armed Robbery in Company occurs when a person commits an armed robbery in company with one or more other persons. Armed Robbery with Wounding occurs when a victim sustains wounding during an armed robbery.
Demanding property with intent to steal
A lesser offence than robbery, demanding property with intent to steal occurs when a person demands property using menaces or force, with the intent to steal, but where the theft is not in fact carried out.
Robbery with wounding
Robbery with Wounding is a robbery where the victim is wounded. A wounding is an injury that breaks the skin, such as a cut or a gash.
