Representation versus Self Representation
We recommend that people seek representation when going to court.
Lawyers are trained to be able to best present your case to the Court and obtain a more favourable outcome on your behalf. Lawyers can provide ongoing advice as your matter progresses so that you can make more informed decision about your matter.
At Hutchinson Legal, we endeavour to provide you with advice at each stage of your matter. Our lawyers appear at all Victorian Courts, including specialist courts such as the Assessment and Referral Court and Drug Court. We will seek your instructions and strive to achieve the best result on your behalf.
New bail laws have recently come into effect, so it is important that you receive informed advice about preventing yourself from being remanded into custody or applying for bail should you find yourself in custody.
Convictions may prohibit you from obtaining a Working with Children’s Check or seeking certain employment opportunities, so we recommend having representation as they advise you about possible sentencing outcomes.
