Defending Theft Charges

When representing clients charged with minor theft offences, our goal is always to secure a withdrawal. This can be achieved by negotiating a "diversion" of the theft charge, which may require our client to complete some community service or counselling.

A theft of over $5000 is treated more severely under the law, and can result in a significantly longer sentence of imprisonment of up to 10 years. 

Defending Fraud Charges

Fraud charges are extremely serious and can result in sentences of up to 14 years in prison. These cases can be very complex, and successfully defending them will often require the careful review of substantial amounts of disclosure. 

Fraud charges can be the result of a simple error, omission or negligence. Charges can arise in the context of employment, business, the purchase or sale of goods, the filing of taxes, or the claiming of benefits. 

Regardless of the nature of the fraud charge, it is advisable that you speak to an experienced criminal lawyer at the earliest opportunity in order to protect any defences you may have and to ensure the best possible outcome for your case.
