The state of Victoria takes driving offences seriously. As specialist traffic lawyers we routinely deal with driving related matters in both the Magistrates’ and Superior Courts.
We have offices in Frankston, Geelong, Ringwood, Moorabbin and Dandenong and regularly appear at the local Courts in these areas, including the County and Supreme Courts.
Offences like drink driving, driving whilst disqualified, driving whilst suspended, driving dangerously and other hoon offences will be heard in the Magistrates’ Court whilst more serious offences involving death or serious injury carry heavier penalties and will be heard in the County or Supreme Courts of Victoria.
If you are found guilty of a driving offence, consequences can include losing your licence for a period of time, severe financial penalties or even prison in more extreme cases. It is vital to engage a competent and experienced driving offence lawyer who can help you receive a not guilty verdict or can minimise the penalties you may face.
Lawyers with experience
Dribbin & Brown’s driving offence lawyers can help you if you have been charged with any kind of traffic offence. There is not a driving-related matter we haven’t handled. We are traffic law specialists and enjoy attending court to fight for our client’s rights.
Police are becoming increasingly severe with Victorian motorists. And traffic matters are becoming more complicated. Both the Courts and VicRoads can impose penalties. Even a very straightforward matter can become complicated when you have first been to Court and VicRoads then sends you a license suspension notice.
Ask yourself, how important is my licence and what will it cost me if I lose it?
It is at this point that you should call the driving offence solicitors at Dribbin & Brown to assist you with your case.
Serious driving offences
Indictable matters relating to culpable driving, dangerous driving causing serious injury and death and negligently causing serious injury are obviously treated very seriously by the judiciary.
If you are found guilty this will almost always result in an immediate gaol sentence. From a police perspective there is now no such thing as an accident. When someone is seriously hurt or injured they will look for someone to blame.
If you have been charged with any of the above offences it is important to see a lawyer early. When you have been charged in relation to a serious accident, your lawyer needs to obtain reports, engage consultants and gather evidence by way of subpoena or otherwise.
There are many reasons why accidents occur and it is our job to leave no stone unturned when developing a case theory to prove your innocence. Don’t leave your life in the hands of anyone less than a competent, experienced driving offence lawyer.
