As one of our specialised practice areas, we regularly provide efficient legal representation for clients in all types of criminal and traffic law matters.
If you have been charged with a criminal or traffic offence, it is important to get advice and act quickly. Whether it is a minor or serious charge, you have a right to defend the action brought against you.
Our solid understanding of New South Wales criminal law processes and procedures means that you will obtain the best possible outcome before a Magistrate or Judge, whether it be a verdict of not guilty, a section 10 bond or a reduced penalty and/or sentence.
We will guide you in all areas of your estate planning.
It is tremendously important that you have a valid Will. Having a valid Will gives you the power to distribute your assets to whom and what manner you wish.
If you already have a Will, it may be time to review your Will as your circumstances may change and your Will no longer fulfils your testamentary wishes.
Having a Power of Attorney and an Enduring Guardianship is also important, especially in the event that you loose the capacity to make your own decisions. A Power of Attorney allows you to legally nominate a person to act on your behalf in relation to legal decisions whilst an Enduring Guardianship relates to health and lifestyle decisions.
We understand that it is an extremely difficult time when a loved one passes away. Calabrese Lawyers can assist in obtaining probate and guide you through the steps to administer the estate according to the terms of the will.
