Why Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers?
We are Local Solicitors
With offices very close to most local Magistrates’ Courts in Victoria and an office in the Melbourne CBD, we have lawyers across the State ready to assist you. Our criminal lawyers only practise in criminal law, traffic law and intervention order law, and they attend the same courts routinely and regularly, giving them local knowledge about the Courts, the staff and the Magistracy. It is this local knowledge that gives our lawyers the edge when representing you.
After Hours Legal Service Available
Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers also run an after-hours advice line, so if the police arrest you, our lawyers are available at all hours to provide the right advice to you. The right advice early is critical. A good record of interview can be the difference between being found guilty or not guilty later and, in rare circumstances, can mean you won’t be charged at all. From when police first make contact with you through to your final hearing at Court, Dribbin & Brown have the skills, resources, relationships and the knowledge to help you through what could be one of the worst experiences of your life.
Jury Trial Specialists
Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers have developed excellent relationships with some of Victoria’s most prominent and talented barristers. This gives us access to counsel with extensive trial experience. If you have to run a jury trial, you need to know that you have the best team in your corner. Picking the right barrister is crucial. Over time, the partners at Dribbin & Brown have developed essential and long-standing relationships with some of Victoria’s best barristers and have been in charge of running hundreds of jury trials with outstanding results. When a matter is running to a jury trial at Dribbin & Brown, it is always David Dribbin or Michael Brown that make the final choice when it comes time to choosing counsel. It is this hands on involvement that has led to Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers growing from a firm of two in 2010 to a firm of 22 in 2020. If you are facing Court in the County or Supreme Courts, you need to make sure that you get it right first time because there are very rarely any second chances. That is why barrister choice is so important.
At Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers, we understand the importance of client care. We don’t overload our lawyers with six or seven cases each day because we know that client care is essential. For that very reason, it is rare for our lawyers to be doing more than one to two matters a day.
Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers have a number of criminal law specialists working at the firm, which is important because to pass the criminal specialisation exam you must have very specialist and detailed knowledge about criminal law. This knowledge base is available among all the lawyers that work at Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers.
