What is a defence lawyer?
A defence lawyer is a fundamental entitlement of any accused person. If you are suspected, accused or charged with committing a crime, don’t think for once that you have no rights. You do have rights, and our defence lawyers will protect those rights from being infringed by the police or other prosecuting authorities.
Once arrested or charged, you don’t want to risk being remanded in custody awaiting a hearing or trial date, and in the longer term suffering the social and career stigma of a guilty verdict, followed by a sentence that means that you could be fined, sent to jail or punished in other ways. Even in the case of guilt, there are ways to mitigate the verdict, conviction or sentence so that you suffer less than you could otherwise.
O’Brien Solicitors are regularly present to defend people charged with criminal offences in the Local, District and Supreme courts in Sydney and throughout NSW.
Navigating the court and justice system yourself is full of peril. There are particular rules relating to the ability to apply for bail, meeting the requirements of the court, and laws about appealing a verdict, conviction or severity or sentence.
