Our client was initially charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm. Following our representations, the prosecution accepted a plea to a lesser offence.

Our client’s mother commented: “We got the results we had hoped for and more, and in such a limited time, a great outcome for a little Aussie just lost in the system.

Achieved an acquittal, on all counts, of a bookkeeper accused of stealing from her employer. The allegations centered around certain expense and wages claims that the employer reported to the police as ‘suspicious’.
Our client pleaded guilty to a sexual offence involving a child relative. Despite protestations from the DPP, we secured a suspended sentence order meaning that our client will serve no jail time (provided he does not offend further in the next 18 months).
