Criminal Law

Dealing with a criminal matter can be an extremely stressful and trying time. Our criminal law solicitors have experience across a range of criminal matters and will guide you through the process, keeping you informed as to what happens next.

If you are being questioned by the Police, or charged with an offence, it is crucial that you obtain legal advice before providing a statement or participating in a record of interview as anything that you say may be incriminating or used against you as evidence at a later stage.

Our team can assist you with the following offences:

  • Assault;
  • Sexual offences;
  • Drug related offences;
  • Theft; and
  • Contraventions of domestic violence orders.

It is extremely important that you seek legal advice before deciding to plead guilty or not guilty to an offence as once you enter a plea, it can be very difficult to change your mind. There may also be defences available to you.

Kelly Legal can assist with:

  • Interviews with the Police and guiding you through the initial stage of being charged with an offence;
  • Guilty pleas;
  • Bail hearings;
  • Negotiating facts and charges with the Police; and
  • Defending you at trial.

Don’t become overwhelmed by the criminal process, contact our office now to arrange an appointment with one of our criminal law solicitors.
