Being charged with an offence can be quite a stressful ordeal, which can be further amplified if refused bail.  Criminal lawyers at Lawson Legal have years of experience in conducting bail applications with a high success rate.

Lawson Legal has conducted numerous trials in the greater Perth area and the rest of Western Australia.  Prior to the commencement of a trial, all options are explored to achieve the best possible option for our clients.  Our criminal lawyers focus extensively on the preparation for a trial, with a full understanding of the case, in order to achieve victory.

Sentencing hearings require a high level of experience and persuasion in arriving at the best outcome.  Criminal defence lawyers at Lawson Legal have an outstanding record of keeping clients out of gaol and avoiding criminal records with over 100 successful spent conviction applications.
