What You Need to Know About Hiring a Criminal Law Barrister
Do you require the services of a criminal law barrister? Sometimes, determining the answer to this question can be more complicated than it seems on the surface. At Galbally Parker, we are here to help you determine the type of legal representation you require for your criminal law case.
How Much Do You Know about Melbourne Criminal Barristers
We are proud to employ some of the finest Melbourne criminal barristers working today. But what exactly is a barrister, and in which types of cases are their services required? Here are a few facts you may or may not know about barristers:
- Solicitors and barristers are different: The terms ‘lawyer’ or even ‘criminal law lawyer’ can have a broad meaning, encompassing both solicitors and barristers. Solicitors and barristers both have a wealth of knowledge in the legal field. Solicitors are exceptionally skilled at preparing cases and advising clients, among other things. They can also appear in court, though doing so is not necessarily their speciality.
- Barristers play a vital role in courtroom cases: If you need a criminal offence lawyer to represent you in court, you will likely want to hire a barrister. Barristers specialise in courtroom advocacy. They work with solicitors and their clients to learn more about the case in question and to formulate a strategy for the courtroom. From there, the barrister will appear in court to argue the case and defend the client. Barristers have a deep understanding of litigation tactics and often specialise in a specific area of law.
- Barristers do not work in law firms: Typically, barristers work independently, whereas solicitors practice as part of law firms. Law firms and their clients will then engage the services of barristers if a courtroom advocate is required.
About the Professionals at Galbally Parker
At Galbally Parker, we seek to provide each client with the most exceptional criminal defence possible. Here are a few details to know about the professionals we employ or work with regularly:
- Our lawyers have represented clients in high-profile cases: We pride ourselves on having won favourable verdicts for clients in high-profile cases. Most recently, our Principal, Ruth Parker, achieved an acquittal for Faruk Orman, who had been wrongfully accused and convicted of a crime as part of the infamous Lawyer X scandal.
- We seek out the finest third-party experts: While our solicitors are extremely skilled in all areas of criminal law, we also have an innate sense of when it is time to bring in a third-party expert. Sometimes, that means hiring one of the best barristers in Melbourne. Other times, it means working with third-party providers of medical, psychological, technological or forensic services. In any case, our goal with these partnerships is always to bring in the sharpest and most experienced voices to help our clients.
