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.

Testimonials

  • 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  A traumatic period in my life, however John was an absolute star. I was charged with a serious offence and the chances of avoiding conviction were not in my favour. However, John and the team went out of their way to keep me updated throughout the entire process. He was available at all times to answer my queries and offered very honest advice which ultimately led to me receiving the desired outcome. A special mention for John, he is a honest, trustworthy and caring person which went out of his way to ensure I got the best outcome and can't speak highly enough of this gentleman's abilities. Bless you!
