Being charged with any offence can be a horrifying experience and the ability to contact your lawyer immediately can be life saving. We understand the decisions you make at that time are often made under pressure, which is why we recommend always talking to a lawyer as soon as possible.

Our experience and ability to give advice at this point will give you great comfort. When you have been approached by law enforcement in relation to a criminal matter it is imperative you seek immediate legal advice. No matter the time day or night we are there for you.

Solicitors from Lawler Magill are regularly seen in the Brisbane Courts and elsewhere tirelessly defending the rights of our clients. We know how to run a measured and aggressive defence for our clients, whilst keeping them well-informed of the processes that many people are completely unfamiliar with. Some common offences we deal with are:

  • Assaults
  • Bail Applications
  • Burglary
  • Child exploitation material offences
  • Customs offences
  • Domestic Violence Matters
  • Fraud and corporate crime
  • Minor drug offences (such as possession offences)
  • Murder and manslaughter
  • Police Interviews
  • Robbery
  • Serious drug offences (such as importation, trafficking and supply)
  • Sex offences (such as rape, sexual assault)
  • Stealing
  • Taxation offences

At Lawler Magill we believe that justice should be accessible to everybody, including those who may be unable to afford to privately fund their representation. As such we are a preferred supplier for Legal Aid Queensland.

We recognise that some clients require a higher level of care where there are significant language and/or cultural issues present, as well as mental health issues. We are very well experienced at dealing with people who are at some sort of disadvantage and catering to their needs so that they can get the best possible defence. We have had extensive dealings with the Office of the Adult Guardian for those under a guardianship order and understand the issues inherent in such a situation.

If you have a query, please do not hesitate to enter it and one of our solicitors will respond to you shortly.
