Slades & Parsons Accredited Criminal Law Specialists of Melbourne:

Defending criminal charges for over 35 years!

Slades & Parsons represent a diversity of clients charged with criminal offences from the relatively minor (shop thefts, minor traffic offences) to the most serious (homicide, rape and sexual assault offences, drug offenses, sex offences and people smuggling). With extensive experience in dealing with major fraud and Commonwealth cases as well as younger clients in the Children’s Court, Slades & Parsons lawyers have a strong record of success in the running of contested hearings and trials in all courts.

Looking after Clients

Being charged with a criminal offence is a confronting experience that can have serious consequences for your future employment, career and relationships.  We ensure you are kept fully informed about the case against you as we explore possible defences and seek a realistic, timely and affordable resolution of the matter.

We will discuss a realistic fee structure with you that optimises the best possible outcome of any matter.  In order to prepare the best possible case and to get the optimal outcome, which might include sentencing, we work closely with other professionals, including: psychiatrists, medical practitioners, family and violence counsellors, psychologists and drug treatment specialists. 

Confidentiality and Professionalism

Client confidentiality is important and we understand some clients might want as little media exposure as possible. At Slades & Parsons our specialist criminal lawyers and solicitors offer clients confidential and professional advice, ensuring a high degree of professionalism. We work closely with members of the Bar and will always look for the most experienced and appropriate barrister to represent you, if a trial is required. Ensuring we are acting on the client's instructions, we provide an accurate ongoing assessment of the strength of a prosecution case and available defences.

Slades & Parsons lawyers take on both private and legal aid cases and can help support you in applying for legal aid if you are eligible. To find out more on legal aid call our hotline on 03 9602 3000. 

Slades & Parsons Solicitors have over 35 years of experience in criminal law.
