Criminal Law

The Best Criminal Lawyers in Melbourne & Across Victoria

If you’ve been charged with a criminal offence. Your immediate uncertainties around the charge, the legal process, and the risk of conviction are only some of the things weighing on your mind. The various steps, procedures, and roles of players in a criminal case can be complex and confusing without the right support and guidance. You’re anxious, trying to make the right decisions for the best possible outcome.

The long-term consequences of a criminal charge are probably also starting to enter your thoughts. Could it affect your business, your family, your ability to travel? If you’re not an Australian citizen, a criminal conviction could also risk your right to stay in the country. These are all genuine challenges to consider, in addition to putting forward your best possible legal defence.

At Gallant Law, we also understand that you have a lot going on beyond your legal case. We pride ourselves on offering a full service that supports you, both in and out of the courtroom.

We ensure the risks and outcomes are clearly explained. We know you value regular communication. We want you to know what is going on and feel in control of your own case.

We’ve been defending criminal matters for 20 years, and in that time, we’ve worked on all kinds of cases and appeared in every court from the Children’s and Magistrates’ Courts through to the County/District, Supreme and High Courts.
