Drug Charges

If you have been charged with drug offences, our Canberra criminal lawyers can help.

Being charged with a drug offence is very serious. Most people who have a history of drug charges will most likely be under constant police surveillance. This involves the installation of listening devices in your home, phone cars etc. In the ACT, if you are caught in possession of a substantial amount of drugs, the law will deem you trafficking, unless proven innocent.

To get the best possible outcome, it is important that you seek advice from one of our Canberra Criminal Lawyers who will guide you throughout the entire process as well as provide you with individual legal advice.

Traffic Charges

At Law By Dan, our Canberra Criminal Lawyers work in all areas of traffic law in the ACT. Facing a traffic charge can be confusing and intimidating which is why our Canberra Criminal Lawyers deal with police, prosecutors and the court on your behalf. If you have been charged for drink driving, traffic fines, driving under the influence of drugs, use of mobile phone, speeding, or driving whilst disqualified or suspended, our Canberra Criminal Lawyers urge you to act now before it’s too late.

Sex Offences

These types of offences are very broad. If you have been charged with any sex offences, choosing the best criminal lawyer is crucial.

There are a multitude of offences you can be charged for in the ACT under the Crimes Act 1900 and the Criminal Code Act 2002. This is why our Canberra Criminal Lawyers encourage you to seek advice from one of our lawyers today. Due to the varying circumstances and individual types of charges, the nature of sexual offences tends to be quite broad. Our Canberra Criminal Lawyers are renowned for making formal applications prior to attending court which indicates the type of sexual offence. These often include sexual assault without consent (known as rape), indecent assault, distributing or possessing child pornography, sexual assault of a minor or having a relationship with a minor, and many more cases pertaining to sexual offences.

When it’s time to go to court, our lawyers are happy to negotiate with the prosecutors on your behalf regarding what charges you agree to plead guilty to. In the event that things don’t go to plan, our lawyers are experienced in the courts of appeal.

Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence charges are very serious. Your choice of the best criminal lawyer is the most important decision.

A domestic violence offence is one that breaches the Personal Protection Order or the Domestic Violence Order. These matters are taken very seriously and if found guilty, are often harder to obtain bail. Due to the everchanging nature of domestic violence matters, it is always a good idea to seek advice from an experienced criminal lawyer who can help you understand current legislations.

Assault Charges

Have you been charged with assault or related offences? These types of charges have serious consequences.

Assault charges cover a broad array of matters. These often include common assault, actual body harm, grievous bodily harm and assaulting police. In Australia, all assault charges have a jail term as a penalty option. Therefore, it is important that you seek prompt advice if you believe that you may be under investigation or have already been charged with assault. Our Canberra Criminal Lawyers deal with assault offences from coughing on or spitting at a public official or wounding with intent to murder/manslaughter and everything in between.
