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.
