How can Breens Solicitors & Conveyancers help you?


Defending the charge


With over 30 years’ experience in criminal matters and our understanding of the defences available, we can advise you in relation to the strengths of the police case  against you and whether or not the charge can be defended. 


Just because you have been charged with an offence, it does not necessarily mean you should plead guilty or that the police will succeed in proving their case. You do have rights. Let us advise you with  no nonsense common sense advice.




Although some offences carry  heavy maximum penalties, lesser penalties are available to the court (such as good behaviour bonds, community service orders, suspended sentences or weekend detention). Instructing Breens Solicitors & Conveyancers to represent you on sentence can make a difference. We can also brief specialist criminal defence barristers to represent you .


If you have been charged with any criminal offence, you can contact Paul Kaperonis, Solicitor on (02) 8628 0415 for assistance and advice.
