If you have been charged with a driving offence you should contact a lawyer immediately as the outcome for these offences can result in serious penalties, particularly for repeat offenders. The following charges can carry terms of imprisonment:
- Culpable driving
- Dangerous driving
- Drink driving
- Drug driving
- Driving whilst suspended/disqualified
Melinda is very experienced in representing people charged with a huge range driving offences and can advise you on whether you should plead guilty or not guilty, as well as provide advice on the likely penalty including licence suspensions and interlock requirements (if any).
Road Traffic laws in Victoria are very complicated, and it takes an expert to navigate this technical field of law. Sometimes there is no obvious defence to driving charges; however Melinda will be able to assess the evidence to determine if there is a gap in the evidence or a procedural error caused by police.
Often, defences in driving matters come down to the facts and Melinda is very experience in cross-examining witnesses to elicit inconsistencies in the prosecution case.
