QLD Traffic Law
For many people, keeping their licence is important if they are to maintain their current employment. For other people, limiting any disqualification period is critical.
For example, people who are self employed and require their licence to attend to their employment, will be anxious to ensure that any period of disqualification is minimal, or alternatively, they will want to know if they qualify for a Work Licence or a Special Hardship Order
White Collar Crime
The Australian Securities Investment Corporation (“ASIC”) investigations can be complex and take place over a considerable period of time. They can involve compulsory interviews for people suspected of committing offences. This could include company directors and accountants.
If you or anybody in your corporation are subject to an investigation of this type, the earlier you seek legal representation, the better. Often, in our experience, negotiations at an early stage have led to favourable outcomes for people under investigation.
Drugs and Violence
Drug charges can range from the possession of small quantities of drugs, to trafficking of large commercial quantities and relate to cannabis, methamphetamine (Ice), heroin, GHB and cocaine.
Whatever the charge, a finding of guilty in relation to drug charges is highly undesirable. It is important that you speak to an experienced drug offence lawyer prior to making any formal record of interview.
