Criminal Law – Ken Bates Perth Lawyer

Criminal Law

The Criminal law is rapidly changing as are the practices and procedures of the Criminal Courts in Western Australia.

Ken Bates is a Specialist Criminal Lawyer who has an up to date knowledge of changes in the law, the practice and procedure of the Criminal Law and recent Appellate Court decisions which affect how the law is interpreted and the range of sentences to be imposed in respect of particular types of cases.

At our initial consultation I will provide you with advice as to the nature of the charges and penalties involved and your prospects of successfully defending the matter.

I will provide you with the best options for dealing with your case, which may include negotiating with the police or prosecution to have your charges dismissed or alternatively, downgraded, pleading not guilty and defending the matter at a trial or pleading guilty and presenting the strongest possible argument to the Court to mitigate or reduce the penalty to be imposed.
