Criminal Defence Law
We provide criminal defence services to our union clients and their members through an association our firm has with some of the country's leading criminal defence lawyers. Our criminal defence services include providing legal representation and advice to members during a criminal investigation, negotiating terms where a member is facing arrest and providing criminal defence in the event that charges are laid, including conducting bail hearings and trials.
Since our clients' members can at the same time face not only criminal, but also professional regulatory and employment sanctions in relation to allegations that arise in the course of their employment, it is essential to have a co-ordinated and cohesive approach to their legal representation. We work closely with our criminal defence lawyers and the members’ union, so that members can have peace of mind knowing that we are seeking the best possible outcome for them on all fronts.
