The state of Victoria takes driving offences seriously. As a specialist traffic lawyer I routinely deal with driving related matters in both the Magistrates’ and Superior Courts.
Offences like driving whilst disqualified, driving whilst suspended, driving dangerously and other ‘hoon’ offences will be heard in the Magistrates’ Court whilst more serious offences involving death or serious injury carry heavier penalties and will be heard in the County or Supreme Courts of Victoria.
If you are found guilty of a driving offence, consequences can include loss of licence, severe fines and the possibility of imprisonment in some cases. For these reasons it is important to have your case conducted in an experienced and competent manner.
I can help you if you have been charged with any kind of traffic offence. There is not a driving-related matter I haven’t handled. I am a traffic law specialist and enjoy attending court to fight for our client’s rights.
Police are becoming increasingly severe with Victorian motorists. And traffic matters are becoming more complicated. Both the Courts and Vic Roads can impose penalties. Even a very straightforward matter can become complicated when you have first been to Court and Vic Roads then sends you a license suspension notice.
Ask yourself, how important is my licence and what will it cost me if I lose it?
It is at this point that you should call me to assist you with your case.
Indictable matters relating to culpable driving, dangerous driving causing serious injury and death and negligently causing serious injury are obviously treated very seriously by the judiciary.
If you are found guilty this may result in a sentence of imprisonment and other sentencing options not involving imprisonment may apply.
If you have been charged with any of the above offences it is important to see a lawyer early. When you have been charged in relation to a serious accident, your lawyer needs to obtain reports, engage consultants and gather evidence by way of subpoena or otherwise.
There are many reasons why incidents occur and it is my job to analyse the evidence to reach the best possible outcome. Don’t leave your life in the hands of anyone less than a competent, experienced driving offence lawyer.
