Josh Smith Legal – Barristers & Solicitors are an experienced law firm based in the Melbourne CBD. We mainly practise in criminal defence law and Victims of Crime Applications (VOCAT). That is where we are most experienced, but we also practise in other areas of law including:
Private criminal law
Wills & Estates
We are passionate about what we do and we take enormous pride in providing high quality and affordable legal representation to all of our clients. We recognise that all legal situations are stressful and overwhelming for those involved, and what might appear to someone to be a ‘small’ or ‘minor’ legal case can be major and have potentially life-changing consequences to someone who is caught up in it.
Our legal fees are reasonable and we always try to accommodate our individual client’s budget. We hate money to get in the way of a healthy lawyer-client relationship, and unlike a lot of law firms in Melbourne we are prepared to adjust our legal fees to suit a client’s situation. Our staff are always happy to discuss your financial situation to try to reach a mutually beneficial arrangement.
Our office is based at Level 24 of 570 Bourke Street, Melbourne in the heart of the CBD. We are contactable 24/7, every day of the year because we recognise that legal problems can occur at any time of the day or night and people need experienced lawyers they can count on.
We also provide legal services throughout regional Victoria and we even have experience working on legal matters interstate and have appeared in courts interstate before.
No lawyer can guarantee you a certain result, but at Josh Smith Legal we can guarantee you that we will put in 100% effort, dedication, passion and skill to your legal case. We can also guarantee that we will act for you with genuine care and sensitivity and we will never give up fighting for you.
