Traffic & Crime
Regardless of whether you have been issued with a minor offence penalty notice or you are facing more serious charge, CK Lawyers can provide you with professional advice and representation.
We have a range of experience in all types of traffic matters including PCA offences, drink driving, speeding infringements, and habitual traffic offender declarations. Our lawyers understand every aspect of traffic law and work with you to ensure that the impact of any infringement on your life is minimised by securing a great outcome for you.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
CK Lawyers explore every possible defence that may be open to the facts as the period of licence disqualification is the main concern of people facing a DUI charge. A magistrate’s sentencing decision includes factors such as:
- The person’s level of alcohol in their system
- The person’s driving behaviour before interception by police
- The distance the driver had already driven the vehicle
- The person’s traffic history
Driving with Proscribed Content of Alcohol (PCA)
CK Lawyers can help with these types of matters which are highly technical. Investigation of the machines used by the police and any defects in these may be used against the police case to secure a good outcome for you by minimising fines, lowering the disqualification period or suspension period and to even secure a s10 Good Behaviour Bond, which means that you will not be convicted of the offence.

“ KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT IS POSSIBLE IS THE BEGINNING OF HAPPINESS ”
Undoubtedly the most well-known area of law which solicitors can help with is Criminal Law – when a person is charged by the police for committing an offence against the Crimes Act.
CK Lawyers can assist you from the time that the police arrest and charge you at the police station until the finalisation of the matter at court.
We will try to negotiate and plea bargain with the police in appropriate cases and will attend at:
- Police Station (if appropriate)
- Bail Applications at the Local Court
- Bail Applications at the Supreme Court
- Advise you on every element of the charge
- Advise you of any available defences
- Represent you in a Defended Hearing, if you plead “not guilty”
- Represent you in a Sentencing Hearing, if you plead “guilty”
Regardless of whether you have been issued with a penalty notice for a minor offence or you are facing serious police charges with a possible jail sentence, CK Lawyers can provide you with the advice and representation you require. Our team will work tirelessly to defend you – mounting a defence to any criminal charges is a technical procedure, and our lawyers are well-equipped to help you understand charges made against you and create a strategy to deliver appropriate representation in Local Court matters and District Court and Appellate matters. In addition to our talented team of criminal law lawyers, we work with barristers to achieve the best possible representation and outcome at every stage of the case.

- Apprehended Violence
