So my role as your lawyer is to fight vigorously for your rights in the courtroom. 

My role is to explain to the court the context or situation that was occurring at the time for you at the time of the alleged offence. 

My role can sometimes also be to tell the court that you’re not guilty of an offence and to raise defences that will convince the court, the judge, the magistrate or jury that you are not guilty of that offence. 

So my role is to protect you in the courtroom at all times and that’s what we do for you.

By law, a court must not sentence an offender to imprisonment unless it is satisfied, having considered all possible alternatives, that no penalty other than imprisonment is appropriate. There are a variety of more moderate penalties that the court can impose as an alternative to a custodial sentence, which can be read about here.

James Janke has represented me in 2 very different matters. As a result of his representations and advocacy, one issue was withdrawn and the other received the best result possible. In relation to the client, James is a clear communicator, explains all possible outcomes clearly and frankly. In court, James is a talented and respected advocate. I highly recommend Hamilton Janke Lawyers at times of great stress and uncertainty.
