Have You Been Charged with an Offence? Get Criminal Law Advice for Mernda Locals

If you have been charged with a crime or asked to attend a police interview, receiving prompt legal advice is the best thing you can do. It is important to note that those being questioned by the police are entitled to make two phone calls, not just one, meaning you can contact both a family member or friend and a lawyer.

Nardi Lawyers is here to assist you in achieving the best possible outcome, and we highly recommend calling our criminal lawyers in Mernda the moment you are made aware of criminal charges or at your earliest opportunity after being arrested or brought in for an interview.

By working together, we can guide you through the next steps.

  • assault-icon

    There are many charges that fall under the category of assault. Often you will be charged with intentionally cause injury, recklessly cause injury and summary assault, all for the one incident – normally only one of these charges will proceed and it is important that we talk with police without delay – call today to discuss your matter.

  • family-violence
    Family Violence

    Offences of this nature are increasingly before the courts (as seen in the stats above) and often involve an attached intervention order where the police are the Applicant. Early advice is critical, so don’t hesitate to call us!

  • drug-driving
    Drug Offences

    Certain drug offences result in what is called ‘reverse burden of proof’ – which means that rather than the prosecution proving you are guilty beyond all reasonable doubt, you need to prove that you did not commit the offence.

  • theft-icon

    Theft can involve either a small sum of property or a large sum, but either way, it is an indictable offence. This means it is in the higher category of offences and legal advice is very important. These ‘dishonesty’ type offences can affect other aspects of your life in the future, such as insurances. If you have been charged with a minor theft, and you have limited or no prior matters, you may be eligible for Diversion.

  • sexual-offences
    Sexual Offences

    These matters are also increasingly before the court. Some are historic matters where the alleged incident occurred many years ago, and others are current day matters. Certain sexual offences can also result in the accused being place on the Sex Offence Register upon conviction.

  • appeals-icon

    Appeals are in the spotlight at the moment with reform on the way. Currently, you can have a complete rehearing from the Magistrates’ Court to the County Court. You are not bound by what occurred in the Magistrates’ Court and you can change your plea. We have experience in Appeals all the way to the Supreme Court of Appeal.
