Representing yourself in Court for a simple offence

free webinar

The Queensland Police Service has charged you with an offence, you need to go to Court but you aren’t quite sure what happens.  Maybe your finances don’t stretch to paying for a lawyer (though you can check with us first as we have a solution for that) and you want to know how to go about representing yourself in Court.

Bamberry Lawyers and Gold Coast Traffic Lawyer is proud to present our first free webinar –

“What you need to know (but are afraid to ask) before you go the Queensland Magistrates Court for a simple offence”.

Speaker and lawyer geek – Sam Jackson – will take you through in this hour long Webinar  everything you need to know before you go to Court. Topics covered will include where and when; what to bring; who to speak to; things to consider before you enter a plea of guilty; what to expect; what to say to the Magistrate; and what happens next.

There will also be a question and answer session following the presentation. The webinar will only cover the law in Queensland but anyone can register.

The webinar will be held on-line on 10 September 2014 at 10:30am , Queensland time. But don’t panic if you can’t make it at that time! All registrants will receive a link so that they can watch the webinar as many times as you like on replay.

This is the first in a series of free webinars to assist people facing criminal charges in Queensland. Places are strictly limited. Reserve your spot so you don’t miss out.

You can register here.
