Criminal Law


Criminal Law




The possibility of being charged with an offence, or worse still, getting arrested on a criminal charge, and worst of all, being bail refused and ending up in custody after an arrest, can be an extremely upsetting and frightening experience. Many people in these situations simply do not know what their legal rights are, or what the due process involved is. Even if they do, they are often so overwhelmed by the enormity and stress of their predicament, they may find it difficult to exercise their best judgment and make the right decisions. Criminal cases frequently come with very high stakes, and a single mistake or an unwise decision (which may be irreversible) can easily cause further delay, stress and financial cost, or even result in disastrous consequences.

Getting professional and timely legal advice from a capable and experienced criminal lawyer, who can advocate effectively for you both in and out of court, could possibly make a significant difference in the ultimate result of the court proceedings.
