When it comes to selecting a lawyer, you want someone who cares, someone who can understand your situation and is able to represent you in the best way possible. I could say that’s what I found when I spoke to Maria from HNT Legal and she was with me from the beginning to the end. I have referred her to family and friends and will continue to recommend her moving forward.
If you are dissatisfied with your result in the Local or District Court of New South Wales, all hope is not lost!
You have a right to appeal your conviction and/or the severity of your sentence for a higher Court to review.
The appeal process can be quite complex and lengthy, and there are strict timeframes and procedures that must be adhered to.
How can we help?
Here at HNT, we have acted for clients in appeals to the District Court and Supreme Court and have had serious convictions overturned and sentences significantly reduced.
We have also appeared in the High Court of Australia to determine the scope of certain charges.
We are well versed in the appeals process, involving reviewing the material from the initial court proceedings, obtaining merit advice from Counsel where appropriate, identifying grounds of appeal, drafting and filing submissions in support of the appeal, and appearing as an advocate or instructing Counsel at the Appeal Hearing.
