How A Criminal Trial Can Impact Your Reputation

(And How The Right Criminal Lawyer Can Help)

Criminal Charges

Andrew Williams is a senior Perth criminal lawyer who has extensive experience in providing quality legal advice in criminal law matters and representing people at bail, sentencing and trial hearings in both the summary courts and the superior criminal law courts throughout WA.

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.

Had Andrew defend a reckless driving charge. He gave good solid advice throughout the process and defended me well at the trial. His costs were affordable and he was a great guy in general. The most important thing is we were able to have the charges dismissed via a not guilty verdict. I would recommend him to anyone.

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 arg...

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 ple...

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 inte...
