Facing a local court appearance for assault?
If you have been charged with an assault, the Local Court Lawyers can help. Crimes of violence are taken very seriously by the local court and depending on the nature of the assault gaol terms can be imposed, even for first time offenders. There are a myriad of other issues that complicate assaults including bail, apprehended violence orders, non-association orders and even place restriction orders. Some jobs require no criminal convictions for matters of violence, for example teaching and government employment. A conviction can also make it difficult to obtain visas for international travel.
There are choices to be made between pleading guilty and not guilty and the processes vary greatly. The Local Court Lawyers are in the best position to assess your case and will guide you through every step of the process with the focus on getting you the best possible outcome.
