If you or a loved one are experiencing an allegation of having committed a criminal offence, you can not afford to face the problem without competent and professional legal advice.
At PJM Lawyers, we have a long history of representing clients in the Local Court, District Court and Supreme Court of NSW.
Whether it relates to protecting your licence, your reputation and good character, making a bail application or representing you in Court for a serious offence, PJM Lawyers is the obvious choice.
PJM Lawyers are experts at dealing with NSW Police. If you know the Police want to speak with you, we are often able to negotiate a mutual beneficial time to attend the station, saving you the embarrassment of being arrested at work, at home or on the side of the road after a routine traffic stop.
PJM Lawyers are well-positioned to advise you of your rights and responsibilities and to advise you of the merits of undertaking a police interview or not.
We have often found if we help our clients prepare for a well-organised and constructed interview with Police, with supporting information and material we have often been able to convince the Police not to take the matter any further. If we accompany the client to the station, we are able to negotiate bail and at the inception, highlight to Police (where appropriate) deficiencies in the Police case and why proceeding further would be in appropriate.
Attending a Police Station as a suspect can be a very confusing, stressful, traumatic and potentially life changing event. With PJM Lawyers on your side, your chances of a good outcome significantly increase.
If the allegation proceeds to Court, it will in most cases be dealt with in the Local Court or District Court depending largely on the seriousness of the allegation.
At PJM Lawyers, we have vast experience and knowledge in both jurisdictions.
PJM Lawyers are well-placed to:
1) Advise you of the process;
2) Advise you of your prospects of success with any proposal course of action;
3) Negotiate with the Department of Public Prosecutions and/or the NSW Police Service about the appropriateness of charges end or the alleged ‘facts’ (version) of the incident;
4) Work with you and advise you on the merits of pleading guilty or not guilty;

6) Advise you and assist you on preparing written and other material necessary on a plea of guilty or sentence matter to mitigate any penalty;
