How we can help you
Criminal charges are a very serious matter. No case is too big or too small. When you are facing one, having a lawyer to talk to is important. However, you should first understand your case and what you need. It should not just be a lawyer but a criminal lawyer.
Criminal lawyers specialise in defending clients who have been accused of criminal activity or offences, such as murder, burglary, rape, drug or weapons possession. These are not simple situations but intense ones that can be a matter of life or death, which makes criminal lawyers highly trained to deal with your matter .
How do criminal lawyers help accused people with their charges?
Although having a dismissal of charges is the best we can do, allowing clients to post bail, making plea bargains for lower sentences or requesting other arrangements that would make the situation easier for the client is sometimes the greatest and the most advantageous that we could do.

Parramatta Local Court hears bail applications during weekends. Bail often sets the tone for the rest of criminal proceedings.
When bail is refused by police, this is when it’s brought before the local court magistrate. If it’s also refused by the local court or even granted but the accused fails to satisfy the associated conditions, the bail application can be brought to the Supreme Court. In most situations, a bail application to the Supreme Court is the last possibility for an accused person to be bailed out. This is why you must be fully prepared for it and bring the best defence lawyer for a successful application.
The four types of bail applications are the following:
- A release application by an accused person;
- A detention application by a prosecutor;
- A bail variation application by any ‘interested person’;
- An application by the prosecutor for a ‘stay’ of a grant of bail for three days, for a ‘serious offence’.
Convicted and sentenced already?
Mardini Defence Lawyers can also guide you through the appeal process. When you think that your sentence is too severe or you should have been found not guilty of an offence, you can seek legal advice and file an appeal.
