Best lawyer for DUI charge in Canberra?

By whoodzzz - 10 July 2012 32

riotacters..

Recently I was pulled up on a super low range drinking charge and am now faced with a summons and licence suspension which is going to have significant impact on a recently agreed shared custody arrangement.

I haven’t had any issues with police (other than stupidity in a car when I was younger – 15+ years), so figure that engaging a lawyer to discuss the case and have representation is probably an intelligent thing to do.

Can anyone suggest a lawyer?

I appreciate all the trolls, go hard but its not like I’ll listen to you 😉

What’s Your opinion?

Why would you lose your license for a “super low range drink-driving” charge?

If you read the OP he said it could affect hi shared custody arrangements with his ex.

I think it’s less about losing his license and more about losing access to his kids.

Although I can’t see how a low range DUI would do that unless his drinking was an issue raised during the original custody proceedings.

Shows poor judgement and risk taking.

Aulich and Pappas are urban myths when it comes to getting off in Canberra. Case in point, recent murder convictions in Canberra.

Represent yourself and take your custody arrangements seriously. Yes, it’s your fault

Who did John Hargreaves use?

Stupidity in a car when you were younger, and now more stupidity in a car when you’re older.

At least you’re being consistent… 😉

What do you call a super low range reading? If it’s 0.05/6 then i would defend myself because having a lawyer represent you is going to make bugger all difference to the outcome.

Is Jack Pappas still working in this town? He’s a bona fide genius at beating the rap.

He is no good if there is no defence. Sounds like you are going to plead guilty, but want someone to represent you. If that’s the case, I wouldn’t waste my money.
