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 to understand 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.

    review rating 5  Def without a doubt the best lawyers in town. I had Michael Moussa from an appeal to District court for local court hearing where my previous lawyers screwed up my case. In two days he went through the full file and aced it. Now I can continue my life without a criminal conviction and continue with my career. I am indebted to this firm!

    review rating 5  I can honestly say with full confidence that I think Michael is the most professional and knowledgeable solicitor I have come across. He is confident and delivers as promised. He is a man of his word and has done an excellent job in defending my brother in court. I would highly recommend him to anyone who may be facing criminal charges as he is extremely reliable and trustworthy. I am more than grateful for the service he has provided me even though it meant going out of his way on a Sunday.

    review rating 5  I was represented by senior criminal defence lawyer Daniel Wilson from National Criminal Lawyers. Daniel prepared my matter for defended hearing but was also ready for all the possible outcomes. He knew all the case law and having a plan to show the weaknesses of the police case was able to negotiate an outcome with police which saw the dropping of a very serious charge and the watering down of the agreed facts to the point I received a non conviction in my case. I am so very grateful Daniel represented me and I highly recommend Daniel and National Criminal Lawyers

  • review rating 5  As business owner I had too much at stake and before I found NCL, I went to a high profile lawyer who had no time to look after my case but always had time to send me an invoice. When I heard of NCL and their track record I decided to meet with Michael. When I met Michael and his team I was impressed with their knowledge and professionalism and I knew they would get me the best possible outcome. From the first day John and Gandom they worked so hard and made sure everything was well prepared before the court date. On the court day John double checked all the documents to make sure everything was in order and explained the process to me and what I should expect on the day. Thanks to John's hard work I walked away with no conviction. NCL greatly exceeded my expectations, Thank you so much NCL.

    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!
