COMMON QUESTIONS

I’ve been charged with a criminal offence. Do I need to tell my employer?

Not necessarily. This will depend on your specific employment arrangement and the type of offence you have been charged with. Contact Wallace O’Hagan Lawyers today to discuss and obtain advice about your situation.

I’ve been issued with a summons to attend a compulsory examination. What should I do?

Wallace O’Hagan Lawyers regularly represents clients who are require to appear before compulsory examinations. Even if you have been told that you are only a witness in the proceedings, it is crucial that you obtain legal advice to protect your interests. Without proper protections in place, the evidence obtained in compulsory examinations may have significant, unforeseeable consequences for you.

I’m being investigated by my professional disciplinary body. I haven’t been charged with anything yet. Do I still need a lawyer?

Absolutely. Appropriate legal advice in this initial phase can not only protect your professional career, but prevent any further criminal or civil proceedings.
