Going to Court
If you have been issued with a Notice to Appear (NTA) for a traffic or criminal offence, going to court can be a stressful experience.
Depending on the nature and seriousness of the matter, you may be required to attend court in accordance with a notice to appear. Usually, there is a presumption that bail will be granted if you have been provided one of these notices. If your charge/s are more serious, then you may be held in the watchhouse as bail is opposed by the Queensland Police Service.
The notice to appear should provide you with a time, date and address of your matter. When you arrive at court, you should ask the prosecutor about your matter and obtaining a copy of the material pertaining to the offence. Prior to indicating to the court how you wish to proceed with the charge/s, we recommend organising a free consultation with one of our Brisbane criminal lawyers by calling 0401 999 347.

If you have been charged or accused of an offence involving assault, then what you do next can make a significant difference to the outcome of that charge.
In most cases, there are usually two considerations when assessing an assault charge.

The second consideration is whether the assault was lawful as it may be justified or excused by law, or how the assault might be mitigated.
As there are different types of assault charges and that each charge is unique to the facts, we recommend speaking to a criminal lawyer so that you may receive advice tailored to your situation.
