Our lawyers at Caspian Legal firmly believe in the ‘presumption of innocence’. Any individual accused of a crime is innocent unless they are proven to be guilty. We aim to make sure that our clients understand their rights if they are charged with any offence, or when communicating with police officers or a prosecutor, so that you are not pressured to ‘plead guilty’ when you are in fact innocent.
Being represented in court is also important, simply because most of us do not have to attend court in our lifetime. It is understandable that we may be overwhelmed or confused when asked to attend court for the first time. Protecting you and your rights is our priority.
For each criminal charge, there are elements which need to be proven to the court beyond reasonable doubt. If any of the elements are not proven, the alleged offender must be acquitted.
If you are charged with any offence, our team is available to review your court attendance notice and other primary documents to help you understand the process step by step, so that you receive a fair trial. We handle a variety of criminal law matters, such as traffic cases, assault charges, Apprehended Violence Orders (AVOs), sexual assault offences, drug possession and bail applications, as well as other types of charges.
