Waverley Local Court – July 2015 We appeared for a woman who had a fine for a speeding offence turn into an SDRO Enforcement Order. Such orders, once going through internal review, can only be challenged in court. Our client loaned her vehicle to another couple from the UK subject to a ‘home swap’. Upon receiving the penalty notice on her return, our client sent the form and an affirmed stat dec to the RMS. Only when it was too late was she informed that the stat dec had been received, leading to the conclusion...
Our client was an executive charged with high-range drink driving. We advised him to plead guilty, and persuaded the court to impose the minimum period of licence disqualification, which was backdated to the date of the offence.
Our client was a repeat drink driving offender charged with low-range drink driving subsequent offence. We advised him to plead guilty, and moved the court to proceed without conviction, but in light of our client’s prior record, the court was not persuaded, and our client received a small fine and the minimum disqualification period.
Our client was charged with assault and fail to quit premises after a night out at a popular eastern beaches hotel. At Waverley Local Court, we managed to get the second charge dropped at hearing due to a mischarging under the Liquor Act. Our client was convicted of the assault charge and we lodged an all grounds appeal to the District Court, where we will appear pro bono.
