J.D. Hawkins & Associates Barristers and Solicitors is an experienced Criminal law firm, located on Hay Street, Perth.

JD Hawkins & Associates are one of WA's most trusted criminal law firms, with a reputation based on achievement. We understand that facing criminal charges is distressing. In addition to the allegations made against you, court procedure can also be overwhelming, as can the complexity of the law itself. We offer clear, helpful advice on any aspect of the legal system, so you know your rights and are best prepared to meet your obligations.

We listen to our clients without judgement or prejudice. We get to know you and your situation, so we can first assess whether you have a viable defence, and then proceed in collecting evidence and building your case. If you are criminally liable, we assess the likely sentence and work towards the best possible outcome. We take every case with equal seriousness and dedicate time to each of our clients without exception.

Through our extensive knowledge of the criminal justice system and our friendly, reliable service, we are able to assist our clients with any legal matter. We represent children and adults throughout Western Australia, against all criminal charges, in all WA courts. We offer legal advice on all matters, from negotiating charges to applications for grants of Legal Aid.

Even if charges have not been brought up against you, there are many instances when seeking legal advice is essential. For instance, if the police wish to ask you questions, take you to the police station or obtain your DNA, you may be unsure of your rights. We are always available to contact for advice – even after hours – and can advise you of your rights and obligations, and how to proceed.

If you, or someone you know, requires legal representation or advice, please contact us immediately. We provide an after hours contact number for anyone in need of advice falling outside of business hours (+61 4 0301 7391).
