      Section 32 for Serious Domestic Violence Charges

      Recently, our senior lawyers were able to persuade a Magistrate at Parramatta Local Court to dismiss serious domestic violence charges against our client.

      Police had alleged that our client was trying to take money from his parents. When they refused to provide him with the money, it was alleged that he had attempted to choke one of them.⠀

      If found guilty our client was facing a criminal conviction and up to 5 years imprisonment. This would be devastating as he was a practising lawyer. ⠀

      Our team identified that there were strong mental health factors at play and immediately got to work preparing an instructing letter to a psychiatrist.

      Our client was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. We then prepared lengthy written submissions.

      Ultimately, the Magistrate was persuaded to dismiss the charge pursuant to a Section 32 Application.⠀

      Our client and his family were extremely relieved to have put this ordeal behind them and move on with their lives.
