Driving Offence Lawyers – Melbourne
The state of Victoria is fairly ruthless when it comes to driving related offences. As specialist traffic lawyers we routinely deal with driving related matters in both the Magistrates Court and Superior Courts. We have offices in Frankston, Ringwood, Moorabbin and Dandenong and routinely appear at the local Court located in these area including both the County and Supreme Courts. Less serious traffic matters will usually be heard in the Magistrates’ Court whilst the more serious offences involving death or serious injury carries heavier penalties and will be heard in the County or Supreme Courts of Victoria. If you are found guilty of a driving offence, the consequences can include losing your licence for a period of time, severe financial penalties and the loss of your liberty in more extreme cases. The key to attending Court is to engage a competent and experienced driving offence lawyer that can help you get a not guilty verdict or minimise the penalties you may face.
Lawyers with Experience:
Dribbin and Browns’ driving offence defence lawyers can help you if you have been charged with any kind of traffic offence. There isn’t a driving related matter that we haven’t had experience with. We are traffic law specialists and enjoy attending court to fight for our client’s rights. Increasingly in Victoria the police are coming down hard on Victorian motorists. Traffic matters are also becoming more complicated. This is compounded by the fact that there is double dipping with regard to the penalties imposed by the Courts and VicRoads. Even a very straightforward matter can become complicated after the fact, when you have been to Court and VicRoads then sends you a suspension notice with regard to your licence. What you need to ask yourself is how important is my licence and what will it cost me if I lose it? It is at this point that you call the driving offence solicitors at Dribbin and Brown to assist you with your case.
Serious Driving Offences:
Indictable matters relating to culpable driving, dangerous driving causing serious injury and death and negligently causing serious injury are obviously treated very seriously by the judiciary and if you are found guilty this will almost always result in an immediate gaol sentence. Unfortunately, as far as the police are concerned, there is now no such thing as an accident and when someone is seriously hurt or injured the police are looking for someone to blame. If you have been charged with any of these offences it is important to see a lawyer early. When a serious accident has occurred and you have been charged, reports need to be obtained, consultants need to be engaged and evidence needs to be gathered by way of subpoena or otherwise. Ultimately there are many reasons why accidents occur and it is our job to leave no stone unturned when developing a case theory consistent with your innocence. Don’t leave your life in the hands of anything less than competent, experienced driving offence lawyer. Call us at any one of our Melbourne offices today.
