WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU ARE ARRESTED?

 

If the police arrest you for a criminal offence, you will be placed in handcuffs and taken to a police station. When you get there, you will likely be asked if you want to participate in an interview. In Queensland, if a police officer wants to ask you questions in relation to an indictable offence, the law says they must tell you:

  1. you have the right to remain silent.
  2. you have the right to contact a friend, relative or lawyer.

While the law says you must be given cautions, remember anything you say could be used against you. You should say nothing about the alleged offence until you have spoken to a lawyer.

You may be a person who naturally likes to help people, but remember, when is the police wanting your help you should think twice. And while thinking, phone a Brisbane defence law firm straight away.

Police will try and gain your trust to get you to speak to them. Do not be fooled by this, because they are only trying to make their job easier in proving you committed the offence.

WHY DO CRIMINAL LAWYERS TELL ME NOT TO SPEAK TO POLICE?

 

If you are arrested for a criminal offence, the police will probably ask you if you want to participate in an interview. The best advice any lawyer can give you is to refuse and say nothing. Anything you say to police, especially during an interview can be used against you to prove you committed the offence. They hope you will let your guard down and say something that will incriminate yourself. You may think there is nothing wrong with doing an interview, but you may say something that is not true by accident. This accident could land you in prison. Do not speak to police unless you have got advice from a criminal defence lawyer. Contact our experienced criminal lawyer Brisbane team so one of our lawyers can give you advice to make sure your rights are protected.

WHEN SHOULD YOU HIRE A CRIMINAL DEFENCE LAWYER?

 

You should hire a criminal defence lawyer as soon as you have been contacted by police or charged with an offence. You may think hiring a lawyer will make you look guilty, but even innocent people hire lawyers to make sure their rights are not violated. If the police contact you or charge you with an offence, contact us straightaway on 1800 529 000 or complete the form on this website.

 

A CRIMINAL DEFENCE LAWYER CAN HELP YOU UPHOLD YOUR INNOCENCE

 

If you are charged with a criminal offence in Brisbane, the law says you are presumed innocent until proven otherwise. To prove you committed an offence, the prosecution must prove you are guilty beyond reasonable doubt. This standard is very high. It is not merely you may have done it, or it is likely you did it, or we think you did it. To be found guilty, there must be no doubt in the Magistrate’s or Jury’s mind that you committed the offence.

Remember, being charged with a criminal offence does not mean you are guilty. The best thing you can do is arm yourself with a criminal lawyer who will help protect your rights and defend you.

 

WHAT SHOULD YOU ASK A LAWYER BEFORE HIRING THEM?

 

If you are charged with a criminal offence, you are probably wondering “how do I find the best Brisbane criminal law firm?”. Before hiring a lawyer, find out what the lawyer practises. Some lawyers will say they can do anything. Criminal law is a very specialised area of law. If you go to a lawyer who does not have much experience in criminal law, you are risking your freedom.

Ask the lawyer about their experience in criminal law and the cases they have worked on. Find out who will work on your case. Some law firms have one lawyer who will be the face of the firm and get clients in the door. Once the client has signed up, they then pass them off to a less experienced junior lawyer. When it is your life on the line, make sure you speak to the person who will work on your matter. At our criminal law firm, we make sure the lawyer you speak to is the person who will be representing you.

 

WHAT DO CRIMINAL LAWYERS IN BRISBANE CHARGE?

 

When choosing a criminal law firm, you will want to know what it is going to cost for them to act for you. It is too hard to tell you how much a lawyer will charge, because each criminal law matter is different. Before hiring a lawyer, always discuss costs with them and find out what they will charge for the tasks they will do.
