Criminal Law and Court Representation

When you are in Court for a criminal offence, you need and deserve the best advice and representation. It’s a stressful time, particularly if your liberty is at stake. You need a lawyer you can trust, one that will get the very best result for you.

As an experienced and highly respected criminal lawyer I will endeavour to obtain the best possible result for you, and provide you with all of your options.

I have extensive experience in traffic matters, from speeding offences, drink driving through to very serious driving matters involving the death of a person.

I can advise you on all available defences, as well as assist you with any leniency appeals.
