It is highly recommended when facing criminal charges that you have a highly experienced lawyer represent you in front of the court. A good criminal lawyer will be able to reduce and negotiate any penalty given which could be anything from a penalty such as a fine or community service through to imprisonment.
Here at Legal Advisory Service, we deal with police charges regularly. Our team is in court daily and has extensive experience with criminal law and the magistrates throughout the Gold Coast.
When meeting with your lawyer the most important thing you will need to do is give a full detailed description of what has happened. Your lawyer needs to know everything, even things you may not think is important. More often than not these little things can have a significant impact on your case. Lawyers hate surprises and surprises do not look good in court. You need to be candid about your matter, including any history that could be of relevance and be open and honest so your lawyer can understand what your trying to achieve.
Being charged with a criminal offence can be a stressful time. The last thing you want is leaking valuable information into the wrong hands. It is understandable that when going through this process being able to vent and express how you are feeling can be of help. Unfortunately, this can have a negative effect on your case as sharing facts to family and friends could turn them into witnesses. Even if the person is on your side, the things you speak about could be twisted and used against you in court. We strongly suggest to only speak to your lawyer about your case which you can be guaranteed will be confidential. The team at Legal Advisory Service will also suggest that you remove yourself from all social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Social Media accounts can be used in court by the prosecution and it is best to have no interaction whatsoever.
Yes there are quite a few ways that a criminal record can affect you, let’s take a look below and the most common.
