Criminal Matters

Being charged with a criminal offence can be a very daunting experience.

There are a number of ways police can charge a person. They include being arrested and kept in custody until you are brought before a court, being given a Notice to Appear, being issued with a Complaint and Summons and/or being issued with an Infringement Notice.

An individual has many rights with respect to their dealing with police including your right to silence and having a lawyer or support person present for any questioning. Should you or someone close to you be under an investigation or charged with a criminal offence it is imperative that they contact a lawyer as early as possible.
