Criminal Lawyer Brisbane and Gold Coast

As criminal lawyers serving clients in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and surrounds we have a bunch of experience helping our clients get out of, negotiate or mitigate the consequences of charges that might be made against them for criminal offences. 

Crimes against people are some of the more significant matters that criminal lawyers deal with. They are treated very seriously in Queensland and can have significant penalties. These types of alleged crime include a variety of circumstances where people are harmed, or may have been harmed, through unlawful conduct.

THE NUMBER ONE RULE OF CRIMINAL LAWYERS

Speak to us before you speak to the police.

This is the absolute most important thing that you must do if you’ve been charged with a crime, are under investigation or even just think you might be charged with a crime.

And it’s just as true whether you are completely innocent of the alleged crime or whether you have concerns about the outcome.

We can help you understand:

  • The risks and benefits of speaking to the police about your circumstances;
  • What should and should not be said during a police interview (and whether you should agree to an interview at all);
  • Whether or not the police even have a realistic basis for charging you; and
  • The ways in which you might be able to get the charges against you dropped or the possible penalties minimised.
    These are things that we strongly believe you should know before you participate in an interview with police. That way you can make good decisions based on solid advice.

Below are a few specific examples of the areas we can help in, but we can’t emphasise more strongly the need to call us before speaking with the police.

Hands down No.1 law firm in Brisbane! Would highly recommend TWC Criminal Lawyers to anybody facing a criminal charge. I would particularly like to acknowledge Tam Elabbasi and Martin Longhurst for their incredible efforts in helping me throughout the last 3 years. They are not only the most elite in their field of criminal law but are down-to-earth, kind and non-judgemental human beings. For a couple of very intellectually superior men they actually have a great sense of humour too... ha go figure! In a time of crisis, you need a team that is competent, professional and reliable but having additional moral support and optimism makes a massive difference too. I was initially made to serve time in prison but was given an early release and a no conviction recorded and subsequently the opportunity to continue my studies in Medicine. In all my court appearances and encounters with law enforcement, they clearly explained the implications and possible outcomes for the case I had. They are very knowledgeable, personable as well as professional, and easy to communicate with even on a colloquial level. I always trust their advice and it was clear and conclusive. I felt reassured and well looked after with their services. I felt their commitment to assisting me in my legal battles extended beyond just a paycheck but that they truly like to see people do better with their lives and seek justice. I am so grateful and blessed that I decided on this Law firm to act on my behalf. I don't know if I would be here today able to pursue my dream career if it wasn't for the hard work of this team. I am very happy with the outcome that they fought hard for and would happily recommend this practice to anyone. Legends! Thank you

I couldn't recommend Wesley and the team enough. Wesley provided clear and concise advice, quick responses and a wealth of knowledge and really helped my partner and I understand everything we needed to know with regards to starting a business. If you need a business solicitor or a lawyer in general, then definately reach out to Wesley.. He really took the stress out of the legal processes involved in purchasing a business and is a very genuine person who wants to help. Thanks Wes!

I couldn’t be happier with the result Samuel Hwang achieved for me. I owe my life to Samuel for getting me a second chance when I thought it impossible. I searched through countless lawyers who seemed cold and uncaring until I found Sam who straight away put my mind at ease with his professionalism and kindness. He went above and beyond to provide me with the best possible outcome and for that I will be forever grateful.
