We can help guide you through the legal process, making sure that you are fully aware of the different aspects of the proceedings and what is required from you throughout.
If you have been charged with a criminal offence, it is imperative that you contact the expert legal team at Russo Lawyers before making any legal decisions.
If your presence has been requested at a police station in relation to a criminal matter, you need to consult with our team before providing any statements. Under the Police Powers and Responsibilities Act 2000 (Qld), you have the right to speak to a lawyer over the phone, and depending on the hour of day, have them attend the police station to provide legal counsel. In doing so, our solicitors can advise you of your rights and responsibilities in relation to police questioning.
If a court outcome has been reached, and you are not satisfied with the result obtained following a trial or sentence conviction, our experienced team can provide informed advice and seek the appropriate avenues to help you appeal this verdict. With regular appearances at the Court of Appeal under the Supreme Court, and appeals filed in the District Court of Queensland and High Court of Australia, our lawyers experts in the appeals process.
