We can help. We have represented hundreds of clients charged with assault and violence related offences in the Magistrates’, County and Supreme Courts. We have offices located in Ringwood, Dandenong, Geelong, Frankston, Moorabbin and the Melbourne CBD, all in close proximity to the local Courts.
If you have been charged with assault or violence related offending you should engage a lawyer. The judiciary are extremely tough when it comes to dealing with defendants charged with assault. In many cases people have a defence. There are many questions to be answered before entering a plea of guilty to assault.
Things that should be considered prior to attending Court are: Do you have a defence? Have you only been charged because you were present, and not because you were actively participating? Is the alleged victim likely to give evidence at Court? Did the police conduct a record of interview? What did you say on your record of interview? Is the record of interview or field interview admissible? Can you be identified? Are you eligible for Diversion?
These are just some of the questions that need to be answered after a detailed consultation with a lawyer, following receipt of all the evidence. Don’t try and represent yourself at Court because in most circumstances you will do yourself a disservice.

Thank you again for your support and guidance over the past six months, it is my belief that Dribbin and Brown went far beyond there charter when I came to help my family and myself to the point where your firm was prepared to forgo monies to insure I was properly represented.
I understand that a unlawful assault and interim AVO are on the lower end of the criminal scale but it was impressive and reassuring (in military terms) that you had my back and believed in my innocence.
If there is a sad side to this sorry it’s that their innocent people who cannot access proper legal representation due to their economic circumstances and are forced in to diversion order as the only way to resolve their dispute.
I would recommend you Rebecca Glew and Dribbin and Brown in a heartbeat in fact 03 8644 7322 is permanently in my mobile phone because you just never know. Ps please remember us the little people when you’re a QC or sitting on the high court.
