Criminal Defence

Being charged with a criminal offence is a harrowing experience, which can have a major impact on your life and future as well as indirectly affecting your family, loved ones and those who depend on you. It is extremely important that this type of matter be handled correctly. Our team has vast experience in the conduct of criminal matters. Their experience in criminal law includes everything from Local Court sentencing matters and hearings through to District Court jury trials and appearing in the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal. We can help with:

  • Bail Applications / Show Cause Hearings

  • Pleas / Sentencing

  • Committals

  • Apprehended Violence Orders (AVOs / ADVOs)

  • Mental Health Applications (section 32 / 33 Applications)

  • Hearings in the Local Court, District Court and Supreme Court

  • Jury Trials

  • Traffic matters

In appropriate cases, such as very serious criminal charges, we also work with barristers, Queen's Counsel and Senior Counsel in striving to achieve the best possible outcome for you, and endeavour to engage only barristers who are well regarded for their expertise in their area of practice.


Of course, we discuss the nature of your legal needs and objectives with you before making an assessment of what is required in your case. We consult with you every step of the way to ensure that your budget, which we understand in most cases is limited, is applied to those resources that will maximise your prospects of achieving your objectives so that we can also achieve our objective of client satisfaction.


Our team is highly experienced in conducting negotiations with Police Prosecutors and the Office of the DPP, but if your matter is to proceed to hearing or trial, you may rest assured that we will defend your rights with vigour and tenacity.


Eugene understands the importance of timing in a matter. I found he had a good eye for detail, was able to organise information expertly, and was well-networked. It seemed to me that he was always three or four steps ahead. His past experience as a barrister was evident. I highly recommend Gramelis Attorneys.
