Court Matters

Clifton Legal have experienced lawyers who are able to represent you in court related matters before the Local, District and Supreme Courts as well as commercial and consumer tribunals.

If you have:

  • been charged with a criminal offence,
  • think you may be charged with a criminal offence, or
  • have been asked by Police or other investigators to interview you

 

You should speak to an experienced criminal lawyer first.  It is often difficult to make decisions on your own as to whether you should speak to Police and answer their questions.  The experienced criminal lawyers at Clifton Legal will help you make the right decision.

 

They are also able to provide advice and representation in relation to:

  • Drink driving offences
  • Other traffic offences
  • Breaching or making an application for apprehended violence orders (AVO’s)
  • Parental rights or child custody disputes
  • Contractual disputes
  • Property disputes
  • Debt recovery
  • Civil claims
  • Contesting a will or making a claim under the Family Provision Act
  • Any litigation matters

 

Not all matters will necessarily end up in court.  The experienced lawyers at Clifton Legal  will be able to provide assistance and advice at all stages of your matter.  It is important that as soon as you receive a court summons or court attendance notice or have any documents served on you which require your attendance in court, that you immediately seek advice from an experienced lawyer.  We are able to provide non-judgemental advice in all court matters and particularly where there are mental health issues involved where we are able to assist in providing proper representation and ensure that appropriate psychiatric and health reports are provided to the court to assist a timely conclusion to the matter.

 

You may be entitled to a grant of aid from the Legal Aid Commission of New South Wales and we will assist you in making such applications.

 

Where a grant of aid is not available we will provide ongoing advice through to the resolution of your matter particularly in relation to the ongoing cost in conducting the matter.  It is often difficult to estimate the time that a matter will take particularly in court matters which have to fit with busy court timetables and often matters will take many months to resolve.
