Under circumstances where the death of a person comes under scrutiny a coronial hearing is ordered to investigate. This hearing is presided over by a Magistrate and witnesses and persons of interest are called to give evidence. This is a court room situation where the rules of law apply. It can often be a daunting experience where legal advice and support is a necessity.
Lawler Magill has vast experience in attending such hearings. Our principal, Neil Lawler, has been involved in the Cameron Doomadgee inquests and hearings, and has a vast knowledge of the intricacies involved in these types of proceedings.
As has been seen in the Daniel Morcombe case, an inquest can often lead to criminal charges being laid. It is essential that anybody who is involved in any such inquests seeks legal advice as soon as possible. You may be entitled to be represented and should always seek advice.
