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."
Our Sydney Criminal Lawyers
At Armstrong Legal we have a team of dedicated Sydney criminal lawyers and traffic lawyers who are ready to assist and provide legal representation or advice. While we have criminal lawyers practising all over New South Wales, and Australia, we have a large team of Sydney criminal lawyers. Our Sydney team of criminal lawyers has the experience, knowledge and skill needed to offer our clients the representation they need. In addition to this, a number of our solicitors have been recognised by the Law Society of NSW as Accredited Criminal Law Specialists.
Our team is here to help our clients through what is undoubtedly a very stressful time in their life. Criminal charges can have devastating impacts on a person’s future – a criminal conviction can impact one’s ability to travel and to obtain or maintain employment in certain industries. If a person is charged with a criminal offence it is critical that they get quality legal advice about their options in dealing with the matter.
Sydney criminal lawyers that suit you
Our Sydney criminal lawyers will be able to explain the elements of a criminal charge, the maximum penalty that applies, the court procedures involved and what to expect at court. They will advise you as to whether a plea of guilty or not guilty is appropriate, and guide people every step of the way through that process.
Our solicitors appear in courts all around New South Wales (and on occasion, interstate). We always take care to match any prospective client with the most appropriate solicitor to manage their case, depending on the nature of the case, the experience required and any special or personal circumstances of the client. We also have a number of solicitors who are bilingual and can often match a client with a solicitor who shared their first language.
Sydney criminal lawyers support family members of people charged
We are often contacted by concerned family members or loved ones of persons who are charged with criminal offences, including juveniles. Where someone has been charged by police or refused bail, the people closest to them may not know who to turn to for assistance or what to do. In this situation, our lawyers can help.
We can get in touch with family or friends who are in custody after being refused bail, or who simply need legal advice. We can provide them with advice in relation to their matter and can assist with bail applications, criminal charges or police investigations. We can also provide assistance in relation to how to best contact a person whilst they are in custody.
Sydney criminal lawyers give urgent advice
Our lawyers regularly assist people requiring urgent advice. This may be where the advice relates to a request to attend a police station, a person who has already been arrested and detained or in relation to police search warrants.
We understand that people are often arrested unexpectedly and that information about why this has happened or what might happen next can be extremely limited. Further, there is always a possibility that the person who has been arrested will be refused bail. If this occurs, we can arrange for one of our experienced lawyers to attend and give them legal advice. We will be able to liaise with the police about the matter, provide advice to the person charged whilst they are at the police station, and if necessary, appear urgently at a bail application on the same or the following day.
It is incredibly important that appropriate advice is received from the outset, and we understand that many people don’t want to leave getting bail to chance. Our lawyers can help.
Licence suspensions and having licence disqualifications removed
We know how important a drivers licence is for many people and that the consequences of losing your licence can be dire. Our lawyers can provide advice about whether there is any right of appeal in relation to a notice of suspension of a licence or whether a person is eligible to apply to get their disqualification removed and get their licence back after being disqualified by the court for a long period of time.
Apprehended Violence Orders
It is commonplace for Apprehended Violence Orders to be needed at short notice. Police can also make an application for an Apprehended Violence Order on a person’s behalf and serve a Provisional Order on a defendant or serve a person with an application for an Apprehended Violence Order. Often, this will require a person to attend court within the following few days.
Urgent advice about an AVO and finding the right lawyer quickly is important. Our experienced lawyers provide advice about a person’s options to apply for an AVO, or to defend one. We assist clients in both making and defending AVO applications at court. Our lawyers frequently deal with resolving all sorts of disputes, and we understand the importance of having someone who can clearly and strongly advocate for you in court to ensure the right result is achieved.
WHERE TO NEXT?
If you suspect that you may be under investigation, or if you have been charged with an offence, it is vital to get competent legal advice as early as possible. Our lawyers are highly specialised in criminal law and will be able to guide you through the process while dealing with the various authorities related to your matter.
