What Should You Expect in Your Case?

Naturally, you have many concerns and questions about what evidence the police have gathered, what penalties you may face based on your charges, and what kind of defence we should pursue. The team of experienced criminal defence lawyers at What The Law team will address all of your concerns.

A key part in the process is disclosure review. This is when we sit down with you and review the evidence the police have gathered against you. The disclosure review is discussed and included in our initial free consultation.

After reviewing the evidence and charges we can tell you how strong the case is against you, what kind of penalties you may face based on the charges, and what defence option we believe is your best option. In the end, the decision is yours to make but we will provide the guidance and support you require during your case.

Throughout the process, we will explain the legal steps you and the prosecutor take next, so you always know what to expect. The legal process can be long, but we will work to make it as smooth as possible for you and your family members.
