Imagine you’re in an executive job and then suddenly there’s a knock on your door from the Police, ATO or ASIC investigators; accusing you of a white-collar crime or a corporate crime. It would be humiliating, and you’d feel ashamed, even if you were innocent. After the initial shock subsides, you want to act fast because the consequences of going to court; even if you’re found not guilty can be severe and you could lose everything you’ve worked hard for, combined with the loss of reputation.
A lawyer can talk to you about charges you may face; and the penalties if you are found guilty. A Melbourne Corporate Crime Lawyer can offer you peace of mind by referring to similar cases where they achieved positive outcomes.
Contact one of our Melbourne Corporate Crime Lawyers today if you’re under investigation. The earlier you engage the services of an experienced lawyer, the better the outcome will be because they will have more time to research and prepare your case.
Corporate Crime covers a vast array of offences and potential penalties. The legislation is often complicated and extensive, with some legislation being hundreds or thousands of pages long. Our lawyers have extensive knowledge of the law and can, therefore, defend you with excellent competency.
Nothing is more stressful than the possibility of a criminal conviction. Whether it’s a minor or serious conviction, it can appear on your record for ten years if you received the conviction as an adult and five years if convicted as a minor; and more serious comes never become spent. A criminal conviction could affect your employment or stop your future travel plans.
If you’ve been charged with an offence or think that you might face charges, it is crucial that you talk to one of Armstrong Legal’s Melbourne lawyers at the first opportunity. They’ll also make plea recommendations. If you decided to plead guilty, then they will fight for minimal sentencing.

Melbourne Commercial Lawyers
Our commercial lawyers are experienced in all aspects of commercial and civil law, including contracts, consumer law, property law, tort law, corporations law and employment law.
Commencing litigation isn’t always the best way to proceed when you are involved in a civil or commercial dispute. There are many forms of dispute resolution that may need to be considered before commencing court proceedings. Armstrong Legal’s Melbourne Commercial lawyers can advise you on all your options.
Melbourne Administrative Lawyers
Administrative law is the area of law that deals with the review of decisions by government bodies and agencies. It includes Centrelink matters, Working With Children Checks, immigration law and child protection matters.
Decisions by government decision-makers are subject to merits review by government agencies and tribunals, investigations – such as by the Ombudsman – and judicial review by the federal courts. Armstrong Legal’s Melbourne Administrative lawyers can advise you on all your options.
The consequences of committing a traffic offence in Victoria are severe, and if you don’t agree with an infringement notice, you can ask to have the matter heard by the Victorian Courts.
If you do contest the original penalty, the Magistrate may cancel the fine; however, they may also increase the fine, order you to pay court costs, cancel or suspend your licence and in the most severe cases, record a criminal conviction. A criminal conviction could be destructive to your future travel or employment plans.
Legal representation can make a significant difference if you are going to court. A Melbourne Traffic Lawyer can guide you through the process, and the Victorian Courts expect that you will have sought legal advice before your court appearance.
Our dedicated Melbourne Traffic lawyers are committed to ensuring you get the best possible outcome and will give your traffic matter the attention it deserves.
Were you aware that if you commit a drink driving offence interstate while driving on a Victorian licence, the courts treat it as if you committed the offence in Victoria? A Melbourne Drink Driving Lawyer can assist with information that you may not have known. The lawyers know the legislation, the penalties and the best defences in your circumstance.
If you commit a drink driving offence, you’ll probably face the Victorian Courts. If convicted, you will receive a criminal record alongside other penalties including fines, vehicle impoundment, licence suspension and in severe cases, imprisonment. It may seem trivial but a criminal record, even for a drink driving offence, can impact your future employment and travel desires, even when the convictions are spent.
An Armstrong Legal Melbourne Drink Driving Lawyer will work hard to minimise the penalty, and in some cases, they’ve had previous success getting charges dropped in favour of a lesser charge.
A good lawyer can make a massive difference to your defence and your mental health and wellbeing. They’re also equipped to help you with your plea, defences, apology letters and character reference preparation.
