    Our Experience

    Since 2010 we have been representing people throughout the Coolangatta region who have been charged with criminal offence and needs a good criminal lawyer to represent them. We aren’t a criminal law firm that does criminal law as just one area of law, we do criminal law exclusively.

    Our client’s often come to us nervous, worried and needing answers. This is not a time for uncertainty over your future nor the costs you will pay. The stress that a criminal law charge causes to people can be overwhelming, having a lawyer to help will give you a lot of relief.

    We strive to give you immediate comprehensive advice and a fixed fee so you can be sure of your legal costs. While we will never be the cheapest we do offer the best value in our humble opinion.

    Our prices include;

    • full preparation for court and devising strategy to minimise the penalty
    • negotiations with the police prosecution unit including obtaining history and charge documents
    • preparing for what we will tell the Magistrate
    • advising you on how to obtain character references
    • all telephone calls and emails
    • detailed information to you on the penalty and information on what will happen at court and afterwards
    • appearing in the court with you to conduct a guilty plea

     

    What areas of Criminal Law do you undertake?

    We do every area of criminal law. This includes;

     

    Why should I choose you and not just represent myself?

    We understand that many people do just represent themselves in court rather than engaging a criminal law firm. The duty lawyer will often represent people for free however understand that the duty lawyer is often very busy and can only spend a few minutes with each defendant. They cannot possibly fully prepare each matter and consider all the variables.

    We get calls every week from people who have represented themselves and had a terrible outcome and are now desperate to try and do something to overturn the decision. Just some of the reasons to engage Clarity Law as your criminal lawyer includes;

    1. We have appeared in Coolangatta hundreds of times this means we know what the Magistrates want to hear to minimise the penalty
    2. We can often get no conviction recorded so you are not impacted financially in the future by having your job prospects restricted or travel plans affected due to having a conviction recorded
    3. We are there to look after your interests, neither the Magistrates nor the Police Prosecutor is going to do that, you need someone on your side
    4. We can take you through the whole process so you are not worried what will occur in Coolangatta court as we would have explained everything to you and will be with you at court to assist you. This will dramatically reduce your stress levels
    5. engaging us shows the court you are taking your charges seriously
