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 important 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 Law Offices of Andrew Williams, 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 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.

Testimonials Hear from our valued Clients

I had Andrew deal with my case recently and couldn't of been happier with the result he got for me.
From the start Andrew was quick to reply to any questions and queries i had regarding my matter. He was very professional in my opinion, very easy to talk to and explained things quiet well.
I felt very comfortable in the court room knowing that Andrew wanted to get the best result he could for me, and i would highly recommend Andrew Williams to anyone who needs a lawyer.

Colin W

I was on a very tight rope where if it balanced the wrong way it would have totally devastated my life.  Andrew was honest through the entire process preparing me for the worst but never let me give up and thankfully with his help got a great outcome that let me move forward with my family .I cant praise Andrew enough and recommend him 100%

Jason M

I trusted that Andrew was the person to defend my case in our initial contact on the phone. He was very confident in his approach, from the first point of contact to the court room. I believe this must be from years of experience. Another added bonus for Andrew is that he is very honest and fair. He tells you like it is in the book of law and does not appear manipulative. His communication skills helped me help him to form a best defensive argument for my case. In other words, he made me comfortable to open up to him. In the end, he was able to convince the judge to let me off with only warning for providing misleading information to the police officer, which can be recorded as a criminal record against your name for 10 years.

Abraham A

Unhappy with my then representation, I went searching for a new lawyer. Andrew responded quickly and professionally to my enquiry. It was quickly apparent during the first meeting that Andrew was knowledgeable, honest and was committed to getting us the best possible outcome. Andrew looked at all avenues available to me in a Magistrates Court matter. He negotiated on my behalf with the prosecution, attended 3 court hearings and defended my plea at a sentencing hearing. Andrew presented strong arguments in my defense and I was very pleased with a successful outcome. Andrew was also transparent and reasonable with his capped fee costing structure.

Timothy R

After being charged with Common Assault of a minor I made a sensible decision not to use the local Kununurra law firm. I engaged Andrew Williams to assist me with resolving this matter (to the point of me being awarded costs). Despite being 4000km away I never had any issues with Andrew's commitment to my case. He promptly returned all calls and demanded I do likewise when important information needed to be exchanged. I found him to be an intelligent, straight-talking and knowledgeable legal counsel. I have no hesitation in recommending this likeable and professional lawyer to those that require legal representation. Especially those that reside in regional or remote areas where there is no choice.

Andrew Williams is a laywer of much dedication I will never have the words of gratitude and admiration for his honesty and integrity I would highly recommend him to anyone who may require his services in the future

Helen L

I just wanted to take my time to explain my experience with Andrew Williams. I had an incident that could have really affected my future. As anyone does I called around all the lawyers in Perth and just not any lawyer but the ones who are highly respected amongst other lawyers and get the results. I have a friend who works in the industry and she recommended Andrew. She said she always sees Andrew in the paper with amazing outcomes to cases that he gets for his clients I first called his office and left a message with the receptionist. At the time he was on leave and it was his wife birthday. He promised her he wouldn't be bothered with work (this was at christmas time as well) he made the effort and called me to see if I was okay and how everything was. From that moment on I knew I had found my lawyer. When you are going to court you want someone who is going to care about you and go the extra mile and not just pay you off. From the whole experience he was straight with me and very honest. My case was not an easy one and it could have been a very bad outcome. Andrew went out of his way to get me what I wanted. Throughout the whole process I felt like I was dealing with a friend. He was very professional and got the outcome I wanted. I really couldn't recommend Andrew any higher. He gave me a second shot. Thank You again mate.
