If your child is under 18, then it is likely that their charges will be dealt with in the Children’s Court. There is no doubt that this experience can alter the course of a young persons life.
Our Principal Lawyer, Amanda Brady takes a keen interest in resolving matters in the Children’s Court. Amanda understands how confronting and worrying the justice process is for parents.
It is not uncommon for young people to be be charged with very serious offences. Brady and Associates Lawyers will confidently advise and represent young people in such cases. We can advise you in circumstances where those charges are to be committed to the District or Supreme Court for trial.
Brady and Associates Lawyers can provide representation and assistance in the Children’s Court for all criminal offences in the following areas:
- AVO’s and APVO’s
- Serious Criminal matters involving children and young people (which can be committed to superior courts for trial)
- Children’s Court criminal offences including sexual assault, assault, assault police and graffiti
- Driving and traffic matters
- Care and protection of minors
There is a greater emphasis on the rehabilitation of the child in the Children’s Court sentencing regime. Hence you need an advocate like Amanda Brady to speak on your behalf to make the best of those opportunities for your child.
Young people that are charged with Traffic offences will not be dealt with in the Children’s Court. Consequently, these matters are dealt with in the Local Court. Brady and Associates Lawyers are well suited to protect the rights of young people in the adult court system.
Furthermore, our advice is practical and delivered in plain English. Above all, we know that it is important that children, young people, parents and guardians can all understand what is required and likely to happen at Court.
Our office is very close to Sutherland Children’s Court. Because of our experience, we are also familiar with practice and procedures at many other children’s Courts.
