Traffic Matters

Traffic and driving offences represent some of the most common offences in NSW. Here at Just Defence, our criminal lawyers have extensive experience in representing people charged with traffic offences. We understand that the loss of a driver’s licence can have serious consequences affecting employment, relationships, and your social life.

If you’re facing a traffic offence, like drink driving or dangerous driving, contact us today on 0416 540 000. We will carefully examine your case, and consider whether there is any available defence. We’ll work hard to help you keep your license and avoid getting a criminal or traffic record.

We also specialise in RTA license appeals and habitual offender declarations. With our expert assistance, you can maximise your chances of minimising the penalties, or even retain your licence.

Bail Applications

If you’ve been arrested, we can act quickly to apply for bail on your behalf. This means getting together all the right documents, and making a strong submission for your release – whether it’s through the Local, District or Supreme Court.

It’s important to prepare a Bail Application carefully and thoroughly from the outset, as there can sometimes be a 5 to 6 week wait for reapplications to be heard in the Supreme Court.

If you have any questions regarding bail or need a criminal defence lawyer to prepare a bail application, contact us on 0416 540 000.

Shootings, Firearms, and Weapons

At Just Defence, we take these matters very seriously – and you should too. Conviction of firearm, explosives, or dangerous weapon related offences can carry serious consequences including imprisonment.

Not everyone who is in possession of a firearm is guilty of a criminal offence. If you are charged, we can advise you on defending the charge. So if you or someone that you know has been charged with an offence relating to firearms, explosives, or dangerous weapons, speak to one of our criminal lawyers immediately. We will give you relevant information and top quality defence.

We have extensive knowledge and experience in this area, and we will ensure that we explore all your options, and advocate to secure the best possible outcome for you.

Assault and Property Damage

Assault charges are some of the most common charges laid, and may involve threats of violence or harm without actual physical contact. We will examine your case and will discuss your options, which may include negotiating the withdrawal or reduction of the charges, vigorously defending the matter, or advising you on pleading guilty if it is in your best interests. Our experience in these matters means that we will carefully assess your case and recommend the best way forward.

Dishonesty, Theft & Fraud

At Just Defence, we represent clients with charges ranging from minor shop thefts to aggravated armed robbery, break and enter, credit card fraud, embezzlement, and Centrelink fraud. For any charge, we make sure to examine all evidence and give you strong defence without judgement.

If you are being investigated or have been charged with one more of these offences, you should call Just Defence. The Prosecution must prove a number of different elements before you can be convicted of these type of offences. Our criminal lawyers are experienced in dealing with these matters. They understand numbers and the ins and outs of taxation, accounting, and finance, having degrees specialising in these areas.

Sexual Offences

With extensive experience in sexual offence charges, Just Defence understands how sensitive these matters can be. If you’ve been charged with an offence such as sexual assault, indecent assault or pornography possession, you can count on us to carefully consider the case, and give you expert strategic advice in a completely confidential setting.

The courts take sexual offences very seriously, and this is reflected by the severity of the maximum penalties. Our lawyers are able to explain where you stand, and provide you with the advice you need to determine whether to defend or plead guilty. And whilst some of these offences carry lengthy maximum penalties, the court may consider lesser penalties. Our team at Just Defence have experience in highlighting mitigating factors.
