If you have been charged with a criminal offence then, irrespective of the outcome, criminal allegations can lead people to question your reputation and your credibility. The consequences of having your reputation tainted due to criminal allegations can go well beyond your personal life. It can affect your career, your professional relationships and your capacity to earn an income.
At the Law Office of Andrew Williams, your reputation and community standing is of paramount importance to us so every effort is made from the outset to protect and uphold your reputation.
How A Criminal Lawyer Can Protect Your Reputation
At the Andrew Williams Criminal Law Offices, we examine the prosecution case and the evidence thoroughly. We leave no stone unturned in our efforts to discover the flaws, weaknesses and inconsistencies in the prosecution case.
A criminal case often turns on small pieces of exculpatory evidence. That evidence may come to light early, following a careful analysis of the prosecution brief. Sometimes the evidence which the police seek to rely on is inadmissible in a court of law. This means that the evidence is not able to be led by the prosecution at a trial. If that is the case the prosecution won’t be able to proceed with the charge.
If the problems with the prosecution case are discovered early it gives us the opportunity to forward written submissions to the prosecution highlighting the flaws and weaknesses in the evidence and urging a discontinuance of the charges on public interest grounds. If our submissions are accepted the client can then move on with his/her life and leave behind the enormous stress of criminal proceedings and the potential for their reputation to be ruined completely.
As well-known and respected criminal lawyers within the Perth community, we take very seriously the enormous responsibility of representing accused persons. We work tirelessly to protect and preserve your rights, your reputation, and community standing.
The Law Office of Andrew Williams has a compassionate and genuine understanding of the accused person’s situations and need for help. That understanding is based on the fundamental principle that every accused person is entitled to the presumption of innocence. Every person has the right to defend their charges and no one should have their reputation ruined by allegations alone.
