Parke Lawyers are experienced in traffic law and our traffic lawyers can represent you if you are charged with a traffic offence. Our team of lawyers have the experience and expertise to give you accurate legal advice and to represent you should you have to go to court.
If you have been charged with a drink driving offence (driving while exceeding the prescribed blood alcohol concentration) you should obtain legal advice at an early stage, as the relevant law is quite complex. Engaging an expert traffic lawyer in Melbourne to represent your interests will help you to obtain the best possible outcome.
Drink driving is treated as a serious offence and if you are found guilty you will have a criminal record. The only way to avoid a criminal record when you were charged with a drink driving offence, is to have the charges withdrawn or be found not guilty. However, it is up to the magistrate or judge to decide whether or not you receive a conviction. In many cases you may also be disqualified from driving for a certain time and the magistrate or judge will consider submissions regarding whether, and if so, for how long, any disqualification period should last.
Although you may choose to handle your case yourself, a well-qualified traffic lawyer can represent you in court and help you to get the best possible outcome for your case.
