Our Services

We work closely with clients to provide exceptional legal services that are catered specifically to their needs. With an exclusive and highly specialised focus in criminal litigation (in all its forms) including appellate law, Good Legal Lawyers provides the most intelligent, comprehensive and uncompromising representation available.

Employing the philosophy that the devil is in the detail, our practitioners prepare cases by focussing on what the law requires, on what a client needs to address their situation and by recognising that every case has its own unique set of circumstances that need to be taken into account. We are not lawyers who turn up with hundreds of files and treats you as one of our many clients. We focus on the individual with laser-like focus.


Don't be a number, don't bargain your future.

Local Court Matters

AVO, Plea, PCA, Drugs and Crimes Act Matters, Defended Hearing Work

Most people need to see a lawyer on a bad day. We are the people you come to for comfort, support and advice when things have not gone well, there is a problem that requires resolution or you need someone to stand up and defend you from the power of the Police and the Prosecution to imprison you and deprive you of your liberty. Even when you are not in custody, you can find yourself at the risk of going to prison and you will need someone who understands what you don't - the process, the system and how to go down that path. 

You might be involved in a commercial dispute that requires the assistance of mediation or the Local Court small claims division to sort out and you will need to get help to know what to do, in what order to do it and what to avoid doing because it might make your situation worse. 

Good Legal Lawyers have been around for a long time, we know what to do, when to do it, how to go about getting it done and very importantly, what it can be like for you not knowing where you fit in with an unfamiliar process. If you want a lawyer to be someone that you can place your case in the hands of and then "leave it up to them" we are the people for you. 

How do you know when you have the right lawyer? How do you know how to choose the right lawyer? A good lawyer is a help. An excellent lawyer - like Good Legal Lawyers - knows this story because they have lived it:















The West Wing - final scene in the Episode "Noel", Leo and Josh are discussing getting help and who is the best person for the job. 

"This guy's walking down a street, when he falls in a hole. The walls are so steep. He can't get out. A doctor passes by, and the guy shouts up "Hey you! Can you help me out?" The doctor writes him a prescription, throws it down the hole and moves on. Then a priest comes along and the guy shouts up "Father, I'm down in this hole, can you help me out?" The priest writes out a prayer, throws it down in the hole and moves on. Then a friend walks by. "Hey Joe, it's me, can you help me out?" And the friend jumps in the hole! Our guy says "Are you stupid? Now we're both down here!" and the friend says, "Yeah, but I've been down here before, and I know the way out."
