It may restrict your travel to other countries, limit job opportunities as well as impact child custody and immigration decisions. Because the consequences can be very serious, you need experienced legal representation you can trust. At Martin & Hillyer, our team of defence lawyers can help you make sense of the charges against you and how you should respond to them.

    What to Do If You've Been Charged

    • If you are being investigated by police or have been charged with a criminal offence, it is important for you to understand your rights and ensure they are protected. For example, you always have a RIGHT TO SILENCE. Your decision to be silent in the face of a criminal investigation or criminal charges cannot be used against you as evidence of guilt. In most situations, once you are detained or arrested by the police, you must be given a reasonable opportunity to talk to a LAWYER of YOUR CHOICE before the police can ask you any more questions.

    • If you are being investigated or have been charged by the police, you should speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. By¬†contacting Martin & Hillyer, we will be there to answer your questions and make sure your rights are protected. Communication between you and your lawyer is private and confidential. When you hire us, one of our lawyers will become your legal representative and will be there with you through every step of the process.
