Port Macquarie Criminal Lawyers & Criminal Defence Solicitors

At Lindeman Lawyers, we are Criminal Solicitors in Port Macquarie with proven success in assisting clients who have been accused, charged or convicted of a criminal or traffic offence.

We have experience in representing individuals who have been charged with the most minor of crimes to the most serious. We’ve successfully defended our clients across that broad spectrum of criminal charges.

Acting in any criminal matter is complicated. Often our clients interact with police prior to seeking the advice of any legal practitioner. Criminal charges, by their very nature, are most often brought quickly and without notice to the individual. We pride ourselves on being accessible to our clients and on giving them instantaneous advice when matters “get out of hand” quickly.

The running of a criminal trial is a complicated process. The review of evidence the police wish to rely on and evidence which our clients wish to bring to the court is important. It is most important that a cogent argument is presented on behalf of anyone that is charged with a criminal offence clearly, effectively, persuasively and quickly.

We are very familiar with technology and use it often to assist our clients who have been charged with criminal offences. We have significant experience with clients dealing with DNA evidence, CCTV and we have our own expert electronic media technicians who assist us greatly both in analysing electronic data and presenting electronic evidence to the courts.

At Lindeman Lawyers Port Macquarie, our ability to negotiate is crucial and we pride ourselves on being able to conduct negotiations on a local court level and all the way through to the Supreme Court jurisdictions.
