Criminal Law

Whether you have been charged with a traffic infringement or a sexual assault charge, no case is too big or small for us to take on. We have experienced lawyers to look after your matter. For more serious and complicated matters, we have teamed up with high profile barristers to ensure that your matter is well looked after, leaving no stone unturned. We will not simply tell you to plead guilty to get your matter over and done with.

Our staff often hear stories of clients seeing lawyers who simply tell them to plead guilty as they will only get a slap on the wrist with little to no consequences. We cannot stress the importance of finding the right lawyer to act in your best interest to either fight against your charges or who will make detailed submissions to guilty pleas.

There is a common misconception that you can just get a “duty lawyer” to plead guilty for you to make the adequate submissions. Whilst duty lawyers have a vital role in the criminal justice system, duty lawyers often do not have the rapport that private lawyers will have with you. Articulating a good sentencing submission for you can sometimes be the difference between serving time in jail or avoiding a term of imprisonment. For that reason, it is well advised to seek the right lawyer to act for your criminal matter.

At Law Lawyers & Associates, we understand that people are often unfairly charged for an offence that they either did not commit, or the charges are more severe than what was actually done. We ensure that we review all police prosecution evidence against you before we provide you with in-depth legal advice and options. While we understand that going to court can be very anxious and stressful for all parties concerned, we step through the process with you.

If you are suffering from financial hardship, let our team know and we may agree to either cap your legal fees or enter into some other agreement that you are comfortable with.

I highly recommend Law and Lawyers & Associates in Brisbane. When I faced an incident, despite the ultimate inability to prosecute, their team diligently sought possibilities by delving into the details. Unsure about where to seek help for an important document requiring authority, I turned to the Lawyer & Associates team. They not only assisted in checking the document but also had Jonathan authenticate it. I genuinely appreciate their support.

Jonathan and his team have been very helpful with my injury claim. I was hit by a car at a pedestrian crossing but the apologetic driver at the scene decided to lie to the insurer and said I slipped on the road and that he didn’t hit me. Based on the driver’s statement, the insurer denied liability but Jonathan and his team helped me argue with the insurer on the issue and I am very pleased with the outcome. Highly recommend Law Lawyers & Associates.

I was a victim of a serious work injury, and I can't express my gratitude enough for the exceptional support I received from Jonathan and his team. They made a complex legal process feel surprisingly manageable.What stood out most was Jonathan's lightning-fast response. I initially reached out to him late in the evening, expecting a reply the next day. To my amazement, he got back to me at 10 pm that same night. This quick action proved critical because my common law claim deadline was just one day away. Jonathan worked tirelessly, preparing the necessary documents so we could submit everything on time. Without his immediate attention, I might have missed this crucial opportunity.Jonathan's empathy and attention to detail were remarkable. He took the time to really understand my situation, sparing us from the typical back-and-forth that often comes with legal matters. What truly touched me was his genuine concern for my emotional well-being, especially when discussing the difficult experiences I'd had at work.One exceptional aspect of Jonathan's team is their ability to communicate in multiple languages. My case involved witnesses who spoke different languages—English, Mandarin, and Cantonese. Jonathan's team had experts who could effectively communicate with each witness in their native language, making the whole process accessible and comfortable for everyone involved.Jonathan's excellent memory was another asset. He remembered every detail of my case and our previous conversations, sparing me from having to repeat myself. Given the complexity of my work injury case, with piles of medical records and Workcover documents, having a solicitor who was so well-prepared was an immense relief.Working with Jonathan and his team was a breath of fresh air compared to larger law firms. I didn't have to deal with multiple points of contact; I always communicated directly with Jonathan and received consistent communication and regular updates on my case.With the help of Jonathan, we finally settled the case with a solution that I was satisfied with. Jonathan and his team made a challenging legal journey much less stressful for me. If you're seeking legal assistance and want a team that truly cares about your well-being, I wholeheartedly recommend Jonathan and his firm. They made a significant difference in my life during a challenging time, and I couldn't be more appreciative.Thank you, Jonathan, for being a dedicated advocate and for making the legal process so much more manageable. Your support has been invaluable.
