Amelia Ramsay acted on the client’s behalf at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court.
We advised the client of a number of options that would improve his chances of getting a good result at court including regular drug screens, character references, demonstration of family support, and continued counselling. The client was able to produce twice-weekly drug screens for more than 3 months. Further, he obtained some excellent character references that were forwarded to our office to ensure that they were appropriate for court purposes.
The client’s psychologist also provided a very supportive letter. The client’s partner and mother were at the final court hearing when a plea in mitigation was conducted. All of these factors contributed to an excellent outcome that the client was able to achieve by the end of the case.
Since joining Doogue + George, Amelia has represented clients in a broad range of indictable offences including, manslaughter (one-punch laws), foreign incursion and terrorism related offences, importation of drugs, cultivation of drugs, and sexual offences. Her work has included trials in the County and Supreme Court, plea hearings and contested committals as well as appeals to the Court of Appeal. Amelia works closely with barristers including briefing Queen’s and Senior Counsel. Amelia also appears regularly at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court and suburban courts as a solicitor advocate.
