Criminal Lawyers – Gold Coast & Brisbane

Hannay Lawyers Is Queensland’s Preferred Criminal Defence Team

Being charged with an offence or subject of a Police investigation can be an overwhelming and stressful experience. Knowing your rights during this time, and also having access to quality legal representation is essential. Choosing a criminal lawyer in the Gold Coast or Brisbane region means choosing a team you can rely on to protect your interests and fight fearlessly to defend your rights.

The decisions you will have to make if charged with a criminal offence should not be made without consulting a criminal lawyer. This is especially so in matters involving Crime and Corruption Commission inquiries, where the law is complex and you are not afforded the same legal rights.

A criminal lawyer’s role is not only to argue in Court with you. Criminal lawyers are responsible for advising you on complex legal matters, negotiating with the Police and Police Prosecutors, and also work to ensure the effective and adequate facilitation of the Court process so that your rights are protected.

This means that your lawyer can attend with you to Police questioning and inquiries conducted by the Crime and Corruption Commission and the Australian Crime Commission. Having an experienced and committed criminal lawyer means that you receive quality legal advice at the earliest stage of the legal process, to resolve the matter as quickly as possible and ensure you receive the most advantageous outcome.
