Criminal Defence and Traffic Matters

Police Investigations

If you are being investigated by the police or any other investigative body then it is likely that you need to obtain legal advice in order to know your rights and obligations in the situation and those that the investigators are required to give you. There are many different criminal charges that the police and other agencies can charge a person with. These may include but are not limited to: assaults, sexual offences, drug offences, domestic violence breaches, and fraud.

Traffic Matters

Traffic offences can have a detrimental effect on people’s lives. Most people require their driver’s licence in order to get to and from their place of employment and without it they can experience significant personal and financial hardship.

Ferrall & Co. Lawyers act in all traffic related matters, from drink driving charges to applications for special hardship licences, as well as more serious criminal charges associated with the use of motor vehicles.

The seriousness of the traffic offence will often determine the severity of the penalty imposed. While many people are let off with a fine, others will be disqualified from holding or obtaining a driver’s licence for a period of time, with disqualification periods lasting from months to years, and others may be sentenced to a period of imprisonment. Traffic offences and the penalties that can be imposed for them can have significant ramifications on people’s lives.

Ferrall & Co. Lawyers are experienced in traffic matters and will be able to guide you through the legal process in order to obtain the best outcome for your matter. It is of the utmost importance for you to obtain independent legal advice as soon as you possibly can in relation to any traffic offences.
