We recognise the pivotal role a driver’s licence plays in your life and understand the potential repercussions a conviction may hold for your future. Our legal team brings extensive experience in handling a diverse array of traffic matters, including:

Police Pursuit: Legal matters arising from attempting to evade law enforcement during a pursuit, including charges and consequences related to high-speed chases.

We are committed to providing comprehensive legal support to navigate through the intricacies of traffic law. Our knowledge encompasses various potential penalties that may be imposed by the Courts in New South Wales, including but not limited to:


Dismissal under Section 10

A legal outcome where a court decides not to proceed with a conviction, often granted under Section 10 of the law, indicating that no further action will be taken against the accused.

Conditional Release Order

A court-imposed order that allows an offender to serve their sentence in the community under specific conditions, typically requiring good behaviour and adherence to certain terms.

Section 10A

An amendment to Section 10, providing an option for courts to dismiss charges and place an offender on a bond without recording a conviction, subject to compliance with specified conditions.


Monetary penalties imposed by the court as a consequence for an offence, varying in amount based on the severity of the violation.


The judicially ordered confinement of an individual in a correctional facility for a specified duration as a consequence for committing a serious offence.

Community Corrections Order

A court-ordered sentence that allows an offender to serve their term within the community, with specific conditions such as community service, supervision, or rehabilitation programs.

Deferral of Sentence

A postponement of the pronouncement of a sentence to a later date, often to allow the accused to demonstrate good behaviour or fulfil certain conditions before sentencing.

Suspended Sentence

A sentence where the offender is found guilty but the execution of the sentence is delayed, giving the individual an opportunity to demonstrate improved behaviour before facing the full consequences.

Intensive Correction Order

A community-based sentence involving strict supervision, electronic monitoring, and requirements for the offender to engage in specified activities or programs.

What should I do if I receive a traffic ticket?

It’s crucial to carefully review the ticket and understand the violation. You may choose to pay the fine, but you also have the right to contest the ticket in court. Consulting with one of our lawyers can help you explore your options and determine the best course of action.

How can I contest a speeding ticket?

To contest a speeding ticket, you can gather evidence such as traffic conditions, witness statements, or any equipment calibration records. Our legal team can assess the strength of your case and explore potential defences, like challenging the accuracy of speed measurement devices.

What are the consequences of drink driving and drug driving convictions?

Convictions may result in penalties such as licence suspension, fines, mandatory alcohol education programs, and, in some cases, imprisonment. The severity of consequences varies based on factors like prior offences and blood alcohol content. Seeking legal representation is crucial to navigate these charges effectively.

What is the difference between a traffic violation and a criminal traffic offence?

Traffic offences are typically non-criminal offences, resulting in fines or points on your driving record. Criminal traffic offences, on the other hand, involve more serious charges such as reckless driving or drink and drug driving offences, potentially leading to criminal convictions with more severe consequences. It’s essential to understand the nature of the charge and seek legal advice accordingly.
