Federal/Commonwealth Offences

 

 Proudly serving Melbourne, Geelong and regional Victoria

When facing a federal or Commonwealth prosecution, it is crucial you engage specialist lawyers. Whether you find yourself charged by, for example, the Australian Federal Police, Customs and Border Protection Services, or Centrelink, engaging experienced lawyers who specialise in Federal and Commonwealth offences will be to your benefit. Often multifaceted and complex, Commonwealth prosecutions can feature international transactions, overseas evidence, and multiple national organisations. Penalties are serious and can have devastating impacts on you or your loved ones.

With any offence, whether it be minor or severe, legal representation is essential. If you are facing legal proceedings or the subject of an investigation or inquest the team at Gallant Law can help you understand your legal rights and represent you throughout the complex proceedings.

Lauren Cassimatis, Director of Gallant Law, is known as one of Victoria’s leading criminal lawyers and an Accredited Specialist in criminal law. With over 15 years of experience in the law, Lauren is passionate about helping her clients rise above life’s challenges.
