Melbourne Computer Crime Attorneys
After years of being uncertain about prosecuting internet-based crimes, law enforcement has become adept at identifying perpetrators, analyzing emails and online information, and convicting offenders.
If you are under investigation for an internet crime, or if you have already been charged with an offense, you must take the charges seriously, and you must choose a law firm that understands net-based criminal law, and has established a successful track record for dismissals and other favorable outcomes.

Most online crimes are also crimes offline. One difference is that the rules for search are more complicated. Police or federal agents may find evidence of a crime on your hard drive, but that by itself is not proof of a crime. We force them to prove that you alone had access to that drive, that you knew what it was and that your intentions in having it were criminal. Our lawyers hammer at the prosecution’s case until cracks start to show.
