Do I need a criminal defence lawyer?

Whilst it takes over five years to become a lawyer in Australia, it takes many more years of experience to become an excellent criminal defence lawyer. If you have been arrested or charged with a criminal offence, you should only retain an experienced and skilled criminal defence lawyer, someone who has years of experience and who can apply this experience to your matter. The more experienced the criminal defence lawyer is, the more experience the lawyer will have to rely on when dealing with police, and when representing you in court, to give you the best chance of a more favourable outcome.

How can a criminal defence lawyer help?

Lawyers experienced in Criminal Law (such as the team at Empower Law Group) know how to  handle the complex criminal law framework and can prepare you for the road ahead. They know the ins and outs of the legal system, including the practices and procedures, the relevant laws, the rules of evidence, the sentencing framework and have years of experience leading them to know what helps a client’s case and what doesn’t.

If you have been charged with a criminal offence, or suspected of having been involved in illegal activity, it can be a daunting, overwhelming, confusing and often embarrassing experience. You could receive a visit from the police at your home late at night, or a sudden appearance at your place of work. We understand how stressful this can be and we can help you manage these feelings of fear and uncertainty. A good criminal lawyer will ensure that you have the information that you need at every stage of the matter, which will provide you with clarity and confidence, two essential aspects when defending criminal charges.  

As far as facts and witness statements are concerned, a criminal defence lawyer can provide you with tactical advice on the evidence, and if necessary obtain and prepare evidence from witnesses to support your case. Witnesses can be afraid for their safety when they talk publicly, but conversations with a lawyer will ease their concerns so that the evidence needed for your defence is admitted into evidence.
