Fight Trumped up Charges by Hiring Hooper Legal as Your Criminal Defence Lawyers in Lismore
When the police arrest you or bring charges against you without proper evidence, there should be consequences. Too often, people who go through these situations—where they are falsely accused or find themselves facing deliberately trumped up charges—simply count themselves lucky and move on when the charges against them are eventually dropped. However, the fact is that misleading criminal charges against you can have a very negative impact on your life, even if you avoid conviction. From the burden of legal costs to the strain that comes from having your character tarnished in the eyes of friends, family and colleagues, false charges are far from harmless.
At Hooper Legal, our criminal defence lawyers in Lismore will not stop at getting false accusations or trumped up charges against you dropped. On the contrary, if you wish, we will also help you build a case against the people who dragged your name through the mud. Said another way, we will help you hold the police accountable for their actions, especially if they mistreated you or arrested you without proper evidence.
Working with Hooper Legal to Fight for Fair Compensation
Without a doubt, police work is difficult and dangerous. There are certainly plenty of police officers out there who do things by the book and make sure to preserve the human rights of suspects throughout the arrest or investigation process. Unfortunately, though, there are also some officers who abuse their power or try to take down suspects without sufficient evidence.
At Hooper Legal, we have seen many such cases. If you read through our testimonials page, you will see several different stories about innocent clients who were mistreated by the authorities. One client was falsely accused of assault by his ex-partner and arrested by the police without sufficient evidence. Another was provoked into swearing at police and then charged with resisting arrest.
Both clients chose Gary at Hooper Legal as their defence lawyer in Lismore. Both clients also ultimately had all charges against them dropped, due primarily to Gary’s work in court, and both clients later decided to sue the police for unlawful arrest. Hooper Legal handled the unlawful arrest lawsuits as well and helped the clients win fair compensation to cover their legal costs and make up for the strain of the criminal proceedings.

The bottom line is this: even if the police drop false or unfair charges against you, you shouldn’t necessarily let that be the end of the story. When charged with a crime, it can strain your relationships, torpedo your finances, cost you your job and more. If the police see fit to charge you without sufficient evidence, they put you through this gauntlet without reason or cause. In such situations, you deserve compensation, and Gary Hooper is precisely the man to get it for you.
