Advice open accordron item

We can provide you with comprehensive advice in order to protect your rights before you speak with the Police, and throughout each stage of your criminal matter. Far too often we see cases where clients have not sought appropriate legal advice before speaking with the Police and have then disclosed information which is later used in evidence against them.

It is important to understand that key preparation for the defence of any criminal matter often starts to occur before a suspect is interviewed. Our team of dedicated criminal lawyers and advocates can be with you from the very start of your matter, until its conclusion.

Police Station Attendances open accordron item

In certain circumstances, it may be advisable to have a lawyer present during any interview with Police. Decisions as to whether to have a lawyer with you at the Police Station are important and must be carefully considered. We can give you detailed and strategic advice to guide you as to whether you should have a lawyer present with you at the Police Station.

Should you require a lawyer to attend a Police Station with you, our team of highly experienced criminal lawyers and advocates are on hand to assist you.

Bail/Release Applications open accordron item

If you are arrested and refused bail by the Police, you will face court as soon as possible in order to have the court determine whether you are to be released on bail or whether you will instead be held in prison on remand awaiting trial or sentence.

The decision to grant or refuse bail is an important one and our team of exceptional criminal lawyers and advocates are on hand to represent you in court to secure your release from custody. We can also make bail/release applications to the NSW Supreme Court if required.

Court Appearances open accordron item

Our team of highly experienced criminal lawyers and advocates ply their trade in court. Respected by Judges and Magistrates as well as our opponents, we appear in all manner of courts across various jurisdictions. Every case is important and our attention to detail is key to each case.

When it comes to appearing in court, not only is knowledge and expertise in the law important, but it is the experience and skillset of our criminal defence lawyers and advocates which can make the difference in your case.

Sentencing open accordron item

If you are pleading guilty, or have been found guilty of criminal offences, facing sentence and sitting in court with your licence, career and even liberty on the line is a daunting prospect. Our team of criminal defence lawyers and advocates can help you prepare your case for sentence and appear in sentencing matters in all manner of jurisdictions, no matter how serious the charges against you might be.

Our experienced advocates are your voice in court to explain the circumstances of the offences and to obtain the best possible outcomes on sentence.

Diversion open accordron item

In some cases, rather than proceeding to trial or sentence, it may be appropriate instead to have your case dealt with by diverting you away from the criminal justice system. There are limited diversion options available at law and examples include diversion programs available to children, diversions on mental health grounds and diversions available to drug offenders.

Our team of astute criminal defence lawyers and advocates will be able to assess your case to determine whether you may be eligible for a diversion program.

Hearings/Trials open accordron item

Pleading not guilty and defending charges against you is not as straightforward as many people think. Rules as to the admissibility of evidence as well as practices and procedures in criminal courts are comprehensive. The ability to test and discredit evidence and have inadmissible evidence excluded is important in the defence of any criminal matter.

Our team of exceptional and experienced criminal defence lawyers and advocates will be able to work with you to prepare the best strategies for the defence of your charge/s and appear in court to be your voice in the presentation of your case.

Charge Negotiations open accordron item

Regardless of whether you intend pleading guilty or not guilty to some or all of your charges, situations often arise where negotiations can be held with the Police or Prosecutors in order to either have your charge/s dropped or discontinued, have your charge/s reduced or downgraded or to have the facts pertaining to the charge/s against you amended.

Police officers are not lawyers and quite often lay incorrect or inappropriate charges or place irrelevant, inaccurate or unfair content in Police Facts. Even if you are intending to plead guilty, it is important to obtain detailed advice from an experienced criminal defence lawyer as to the prospects of negotiating the charge/s and facts against you.

If you are pleading not guilty and wish to defend your charge/s, time consuming and costly legal proceedings can sometimes be avoided by having your lawyer seek to have the charge/s against you dropped. Our team of exceptional criminal defence lawyers and advocates can examine your case and the evidence to determine whether it is possible to have your charge/s dropped before trial.

What our clients are saying

I would like to acknowledge my sincere gratitude to Mr Jack Leitner. I was represented by another firm in Parramatta Local Court. My previous representatives’ preparation for my case was atrocious. I changed my representation. Within minutes of our first phone call, I knew this man knew his stuff. His preparation, professionalism, research, calming influence, everything, was incredible.
I owe everything to Jack, he has changed my life. You are a legend.

‘Daniel is a great solicitor. I’ve used his service twice now and he really turns up for you.”

NS

‘I can highly recommend Daniel and the team from Australian Lawyers and Advocates. My matter was looked after by Daniel directly and the level of expertise and knowledge provided by Daniel was not only outstanding but kept me at ease throughout the entire process of my case. The guidance provided by Daniel and the team lead to a positive outcome on my behalf. Thank you.”

RS

I would like to recommend Jack Leitner. I want to extend my appreciation for all your efforts during this long and difficult path. Your availability, follow-up, and especially the attentive and prompt replies have been invaluable. Dealing with the law and lawsuits is not easy for the “common” man. The incarceration of my partner during the course of this legal nightmare was devastating and certainly increased my level of stress while having to deal with this matter at the same time. Please know that your kindness and concern has made a difference. Thank you for helping me through this difficult trial. I am so grateful to you for representing my partner in court, and for being a powerful advocate for my partner throughout these difficult times. Thank you so much for your passionate, thoughtful, and brilliant work. To say I am pleased would be a great understatement. Again thank you so much for everything you and your firm has done for me. I really cannot tell you how much it all means to me.
