Criminal & Traffic Lawyers Wollongong

Wollongong Criminal Lawyers

Along the beautiful coastline of Wollongong just south of Sydney, National Criminal Lawyers® is a specialist criminal law firm like no other.

Our team of expert advocates, led by Principal Lawyer Michael Moussa, are client-focused and efficient at getting the best results. We know how stressful it can be to face criminal proceedings, and that is why our goal is to take the stress off our clients and let them focus on their wellbeing. We tackle their matters head-on and find faults in the Police argument straight away. We act quickly and offer our clients a unique plan to go ahead with their case; this plan is tailored to suit their specific needs.

We start by negotiating with police as a priority. This is a crucial step as here it is possible to have them withdraw some or all charges or amend them to reflect a less serious crime.

Another option we may propose is to plead guilty to the offence but not to the facts, this takes us to a ‘disputed facts’ hearing. This means we fight to get our client’s story told the correct way, so the Court can act appropriately when it comes to sentencing.

Alternatively, if the facts are accurate and we have been instructed that our client wishes to plead guilty if this is the only course we can take, the third option is to plead guilty to both the offence and the facts. In these circumstances, we take extra care to have all relevant documents prepared in time for sentence and ensure the Court hears all aspects of our client’s situation, providing persuasive reasons as to why our client should be given the most lenient sentence possible. We always remember to make sure the Court knows our client has pleaded guilty at the earliest opportunity, that the Court knows about any hardship our client has suffered, and that they have accepted responsibility and are simply looking to move forward with their lives in a positive manner.

Our fourth option a client may choose to act on is to plead not guilty and defend them at a full hearing or trial. This is where our lawyers truly excel and shine; our advocacy skills stand out from the crowd. Our lawyers are well known by Magistrates and Judges and have gained their respect over the years, through decades of combined experience.

Traffic Lawyers Wollongong

No matter how big or small our client’s cases may be, we put in our best to make sure that our client receives the best outcome, and that they feel like they have been given the proper opportunity to have their side of the story told.

Traffic offences can range from very straightforward things such as speeding, running red lights or failing to stop at a stop sign, to very complicated or serious offences such as negligent driving causing death, or failing to provide a breath analysis, or drink driving.

No matter the charge, our lawyers are there to support our clients in their matter. We are driven by the knowledge that the risk of losing a license can be devastating for a family, particularly if they are low- or middle- income earners. The Court takes traffic offences very seriously and we ensure that the Court sees our client understands that it is a privilege, not a right, to have a driver’s license.

We do, however, seek to balance this with the fact that for many people, a license is a necessity for livelihood; that their job and only source of income is at risk of being taken away if their license is suspended or disqualified. We advise our clients to take positive steps towards achieving the best results such as attending a traffic offender’s program, obtaining reference letters, and writing a letter of apology to the Court.

I had John as my lawyer who worked alongside me throughout the 6 months we had great communication he was on top of everything and knew how to communicate not only with myself but with my family when needed, he reassured my family and myself that everything would be okay no matter what the outcome was. Im very grateful for National criminal lawyers because without them i wouldn't have a second chance for improvement.

  • review rating 5  I have used Michael Moussa for matters relating to my brother in all Courts of NSW (district and Supreme). He is a very good lawyer because he has great attention to detail with fantastic experience. He recently got my brother bail for very serious allegations which he has spent time for in custody before. I have no doubt Michael will help defend my brother for his new matters. For a lawyer that knows his stuff dont bother with others. Thanks for all your commitments Michael

    review rating 5  Michael Moussa does what he says and says what he does. Initially I wanted to plead guilty until speaking to Michael from National Criminal Lawyers. He told me a defence exists in my matter and he would write to the police. My matter didn’t even make it to hearing. Even though I did a police recording a loop hole was found by Michael. Michael is an extremely good lawyer and very down to earth. Thank you Michael for everyone you did. I can now sleep well. We owe you the world. Mahmoud

    review rating 5  One thing I absolutely loved about national criminal lawyers is that they always made themselves available at all times of the day to me and give me professional advice. I only had a small traffic matter and I was assigned Alev from their team who was great. She got my red light camera detection offence dismissed - I would have lost my license given it was long weekend. Thanks Alev are the best!

  • review rating 5  I highly recommend Michael and his team from National Crimminal Lawyers. After numerous conversations with other solicitors prior to engaging his services I found that Michael was honest, he did not beat around the bush and got straight to the pros and cons. I received a great outcome and his services were worth every cent. Going through the whole legal process can be a stressful time, but Michael and his team always reassured me the positives. I hope I will never be in a situation where I will require legal support again but if I do, I already feel at ease I have Michael in my corner. Thanks again Michael, Derrick and Daniel .

    review rating 5  From the first phone call I made to Michael, he made sure i was heard and that what i had to say mattered. This was a clear choice for me. Michael didn't just dictate what outcome he thought was best, he made sure that he got me the outcome that i wanted and we did!!! After my first meeting i was then supported by Kaella, compassionate, caring and completely committed to me as a client. She assured me through every moment, a very distressing time in my life. The National Criminal Lawyers Team is definitely worth choosing. Don't bother doing your research, you know your in safe hands here!
