Ritchie Lawyers are specialist criminal defence lawyers providing accurate, confidential and practical legal advice and fearless representation in criminal law, traffic law and apprehended violence orders.


Before you speak to the police it is important to obtain advice from a lawyer who specialises in criminal law so that you know your rights and you can make the best decisions to protect your interests.

If you have been arrested, charged with a criminal offence or received a court attendance notice then retaining the right lawyer to represent you will ensure that you will achieve the best possible result.

We appear in courts on the North Coast and throughout New South Wales on a daily basis. Our lawyers are respected advocates and when required we have access to the state’s finest barristers.


Poor decisions when driving can be costly and result in loss of demerit points, loss of your driver’s licence and in extreme cases loss of your liberty. It is essential that at an early stage you get proper advice to guide you in your traffic matter.

If you have to go to court for a traffic offence or you are appealing a decision of the Roads and Maritime Services then it is wise to have a lawyer representing you who is experienced in traffic law.

We provide advice and representation in all aspects of traffic law.


If you require an Apprehended Violence Order for your protection from intimidation, harassment, stalking or a possible personal violence offence then it’s prudent to have representation to help persuade the court that an Apprehended Violence Order should be made in your favour.

If you have been served with an Application for an Apprehended Violence Order against you and you don’t agree with it then you should seek advice on the options that are available to you.

We assist clients through the Apprehended Violence Order process whether it’s giving initial advice on your prospects of success, preparing statements, appearing for you in court or negotiating a desirable outcome.
