A fierce fight for every case
HHG Legal Group understands the impact criminal cases can have on your personal, work and family life. If you (or your company) have been charged with a serious or trivial offence, or if you are a witness or victim of crime, dealing with police and going before the courts can be stressful, overwhelming and confusing.
Our experienced, dedicated and skilled criminal lawyers will help you understand the process ahead of you, advise you about your rights, choices, and likely timeframes. We will assist you to gather and assess evidence and, where appropriate, ensure you access expert medical assistance, counselling or diversionary programs, so that you can present yourself in the very best light to the Court.
DEALING WITH CHARGES
With expert negotiation skills and good relationships with prosecutors throughout Western Australia, HHG has regularly discontinued or downgraded criminal charges.
If you intend to plead guilty, we will help to minimise the penalties and fines with persuasive pleas in mitigation, delivering you a spent conviction wherever possible. Where you are unfairly accused, our lawyers will prepare you for trial and fight to ensure you are not convicted.
