Local government prosecutions

Local government prosecutions

If you are being prosecuted by a local government or statutory authority, then Austral Legal may be able to assist you.

Whether you plan to contest the prosecution or plead guilty to it, getting legal advice is a practical first step. We recommend that you meet with us via our SmartMove initial 30-minute discounted consultation to discuss and determine the next steps in your matter. In many cases, we will be able to help you work out what your best course of action is at an early stage. This can minimise your further legal costs and in some instances, mitigate against the risk that you may also be ordered to pay the costs incurred by the prosecuting authority (which can be considerable in some instances) on top of any fine imposed upon you.

Alternatively, if you are a local government or statutory authority requiring prosecution work to be carried out on your behalf, then contact us to discuss your requirements. We may well be able to offer fixed fee pricing for certain services so that you know up-front what each stage of a prosecution will cost your organisation.
