Both our client and his deceased best friend were found to have high blood alcohol concentration. Our client was charged with Culpable Driving Causing Death and we represented him at the Melbourne County Court.
Our client also helped his best friend’s family who suffered greatly due to the Kinglake fires. He volunteered to help in rebuilding their home, made a financial donation, and organised a water tank for them. As the family had lost all their memorabilia of their son in the fire, our client coordinated with all of his friends to collect photos of his best friend for them.
