Penalties

Heading icon

These matters are usually heard in the Supreme Court or County Court, and at their highest can carry a sentence of life imprisonment for some offences.

Scientific Forensic procedures, such as fingerprint analysis, ballistics (the science of projectiles and firearms) and DNA evidence have an increasingly important role in homicide proceedings.  We support our solicitors continuing professional development in order to assure they stay fully informed of all recent developments in these fields and their impact on current law and defence of these charges.

Dear Leanne,

As per our discussion this afternoon, I am willing to accept the prosecutors offer of dropping all charges against me. Please pass on my thanks to Matt for his involvement in this matter, and of course a big thanks to yourself also. I’d give you guys a hug if I could for the professionalism and care that you show in your practice.
All the best to you and your team,
Ben

"Just wanted to thank you again for today. I’m still in awe at how well it went down today and so quickly all without you barely speaking. My daughter was so happy to see me home when she got home from school. You are a true gem. I am truly grateful, you were the only one who showed me an ounce of interest in my hour of need.

Thank you, thank you thank you. With a performance like today you are going very far in your career!"
