Tweed Heads, NSW – Legal defense firm, Carl Edwards Solicitor, based in Tweed Heads, New South Wales, announce the re-launching of their practice that provides top legal services and solutions to residents in Gold Coast, Coolangatta, and Tweed Heads. The Practice protects its client’s against legal matters arising in their daily lives through a full range of options that include industrial, criminal, family, domestic, children, property, and violence legal issues.
“Local attorneys have for a long period been fighting for increased magistrate hours due to concerns that domestic violence victims and offenders are having their rights negatively impacted,” Carl Edwards Solicitor lead partner, Carl Edwards said. “The local Federal MP has also weighed in to call on NSW Premier to reinstate sitting days at the Local Court at Murwillumbah. Justice delayed is a denial of justice, and there is even an instant where a straightforward assault matter has taken more than seven months to get a hearing.”
In their endeavor to defend their clients more efficiently while obtaining faster verdicts on their behalf, this firm continues to protest the closing down of the Murwillumbah Local Court. As time goes by, more and more lawyers are joining the chorus in expressing their dissatisfaction with the scaling down of this court. Hearings at this courthouse have increased by over four percent within the period between 2012 and 2014. The resultant delays from the scaling down are hurting crime victims too.
There are domestic violence victims out there who are having their suffering magnified. This is because of the extended periods of time it takes before their hearings and conclusions of their cases can take place. The Richmond MP has also weighed in on this matter through urging The Premier to reinstate the three listing days besides the once per month hearing day at the Murwillumbah Local Court. Additional appeals have gone to the Lismore MP, and his government to have those days reinstated.
It will be a major disaster and a broader worry for this community should the sale of the local courthouse, the Murwillumbah TAFE, take place. Lawyer Carl Edwards and other like-minded lawyers have told the Federal MP that it is taking twice as long, for court hearings for residents facing or victims of criminal charges, to have their cases settled. Many lawyers are saying that this has now become a debacle.
