Criminal Law 

If you are facing a criminal or traffic charge, Nightingale Lawyers is here to support you. There are two general approaches to this:

First, plead not guilty and defend yourself by proving your own set of facts. 

Second, plead guilty and mitigate the penalty by demonstrating your remorse and good character.


Either way you need someone you can speak to and trust. We know how to ask the right questions so that you can achieve the best possible outcome.


Our experienced criminal lawyers are dedicated to defending your rights and providing you with the best representation in Court.

Criminal Offences

We undertake a wide range of criminal matters. Our lawyers regularly appear in all courts in NSW. We are equipped to handle urgent bail applications (including those on weekends and public holidays) as well sentencing hearings and defended hearings. Our expertise covers all areas of criminal law.

We pride ourselves on predicting the outcome of a matter so that you can get the best possible legal advice. Your liberty is the most important thing and we know how to discover evidence to prove your version of facts. The burden of proof is beyond a reasonably doubt so if you have any doubt that the Police have made an error then we can help you test and prove that. It is all about ensuring justice and the truth prevails. 

Traffic Offences
In addition to criminal matters, we also offer specialized assistance in traffic offences. Whether you are facing charges for drink driving, driving on a suspended or disqualified license, or careless or dangerous driving, our expert traffic lawyers are here to help. We can provide guidance and representation for all traffic-related charges, including, applying for relei against RMS suspensions and demerit point suspensions.

We understand the significance of your driver's license to your job, family, and freedom. We will thoroughly investigate your case, provide guidance for your Court appearance and advocate strongly on your behalf. With our extensive knowledge of driving and traffic law, we will strive to achieve the best possible outcome for you, and we are very proud to say we have a strong, if not perfect, record of predicting the correct outcome.
