- Accused people are at a disadvantage when facing the power and resources of the State, particularly when they are in custody. I empower my clients by providing them with clear advice about the strengths and weakness of the prosecution case and a range of options to deal with their charges.
- Understanding a person’s life circumstances is crucial to achieving the best possible outcome for them. Telling a stranger about your life is confronting, so I make sure my clients are as comfortable as possible to discuss these issues.

Advice from a competent and experienced criminal lawyer before you are interviewed can and often does have a meaningful impact on the outcome of your case and in some instances, is the difference between whether your matter proceeds to court or not.
