How our process compares to an old-school criminal law firm.

Most traditional criminal law firms will charge you per court appearance, even for basic adjournments. MyDefence's referred criminal lawyers work smart. They use digital tools to negotiate the best outcome for you before they even get to court. This means they can set their fees much lower for the same or better result.


We're redefining how a law firm works.

What our clients are saying about us.

Supported all the way through.

Super easy working with my MyDefence lawyer, I felt like I had some control of what was going on with my case and felt supported all the way through. They did a really awesome plea which got me a 6 month bond with a small fine without a conviction recorded.


Great weight lifted.

I just want to mention how grateful I am for everything you have done for me, and to thank you so much for your hard efforts on reversing the police's opposition to recommending Diversion for me. I feel a great weight lifted.


Highly recommended!

Your communication and professionalism are second to none. Not to mention you have a great ability to make people feel comfortable in your dealings with them. I will highly recommend you to anyone else in need of your service.


Best result for the charges I had.

I had a few law firms represent me before and they were wholly useless asking me to plea to all charges and not even making an effort and it cost my family a lot of money. My lawyer at MyDefence came prepared, explained everything to me, got some charges dropped and spent half an hour talking to the magistrate to give me a sentence without conviction.


3 charges down to 1.

Thank you to MyDefence for helping me with my charges. My lawyer fought for me and managed to get 3 charges down to 1. I ended up just paying a fine when I was told early on by the Magistrate I was looking at a good behaviour bond.


Best money spent.

I had a driving charge for driving while suspended and was facing a further suspension. My MyDefence lawyer found that the police brief hadn't been submitted to the court properly and because it was one year past the date they charged me, the police couldn't refile the charge. This was definitely the best money spent.


Great legal service.

My lawyer turned up on day one to court and I received a Diversion because I had no prior criminal history. She took care of all the arrangements beforehand and kept me informed through my MyDefence online account. If I needed to talk to her I just needed to schedule a video call with her. Forever grateful!
