WELCOME TO GREEN & ASSOCIATES SOLICITORS
At Green & Associates Solicitors, what sets us apart is our addiction to not only winning or achieving our target; but doing it in the quickest, cheapest and most impressive way possible. Each and every one of our clients can expect that from us in every matter we undertake.
G & A provide a tailored experience to suit the particular needs of our unique clients in each different set of circumstances. We also take a commercial, practical approach and cut through the red tape to get to the root of the issue, with a view to saving time and money for all involved.
At G & A, we have a wide range of experience and knowledge in criminal law, together with broad coverage of areas relevant to commercial and personal law problems. We are able to provide comprehensive and strategic advice and achieve the best outcomes for our clients; while minimising risk and potential flow-on effects in often multifaceted scenarios.
With our office bordering the edge of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs and the CBD, we are well placed to serve even the urgent needs of our clients in the Eastern Suburbs; those from outside appearing in the criminal or civil Courts in the east and the CBD.
We are dedicated to the underdog and to serving our local community (including during times of need; on a pro bono basis), particularly in the 2011 postcode. Our Principal also occupies the unpaid office of Treasurer of the Potts Point Partnership (our chamber of commerce).
Our staff are approachable, dedicated and happy; always available for a chat (or a pet, in the case of our dog), so feel free to get in touch.
Not happy with your Court result? You may be able to appeal the Court’s decision. An appeal is where you ask a higher Court to review a lower Court’s decision and instead impose a more favourable outcome.
You may want to appeal if:
You don’t think you should have been found guilty and/or;
You think the sentence is too harsh.
Various assaults are usually governed by the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW). Assaults can be divided into two categories: common assault & aggravated assault.
Common assaults fall under s 61 of the Crimes Act 1900 and are usually dealt with by a Local Court; however, the prosecution can elect to have them dealt with in the District Court when more serious. A common assault is any act by which a person intentionally or recklessly causes another to apprehend immediate and unlawful violence; or strikes, touches or applies force to another, without legal justification. It can be relatively minor conduct and does not necessarily need to involve physical contact.
Aggravated assault is a term used to cover a wide range of serious assault offences. Sections 32 to 54 of the Crimes Act 1900 deal with most of the aggravated assault offences. These assaults are categorised by the degree of injury that is caused.
Being denied bail when facing a charge can be hard and cause serious interference with your life. We understand the need to act urgently on bail applications, even on weekends.
The initial decision to refuse bail will be up to Police, but then considered by a Court on the first mention date. The Court assesses whether there are any bail concerns, or risks to society or specific people, that amount to unacceptable risks which can or cannot be addressed through appropriate bail conditions. At first instance, this also depends on the seriousness of the charge you face, and whether it is a show cause offence, for which the presumption to grant bail is overturned and has to be established by you.
Applying for bail in these circumstances is difficult, because being unprepared can result in failure. Normally, when an application fails in the Local Court, the only recourse is another application in the Supreme Court, which can come with a long waiting time. It is important to get it right the first time around.
Commercial leases in NSW are interests in commercial premises (for example, office buildings) that are granted by one person, the ‘landlord’, to another, the ‘tenant’.
They confer a right on the tenant to exclusive possession of the commercial premises for a certain period of time. Commercial leases in NSW are generally not regulated by statute but by common law and the lease itself.
For the most part, however, it is up to the landlord and tenant to decide the terms of the commercial lease. Some commercial leases relating to retail shops are governed by a special statutory regime contained in the Retail Leases Act 1994 (NSW). Other rules affecting the creation of commercial leases are found in the Conveyancing Act 1919 (NSW) and the Real Property Act 1900 (NSW).
Conveyancing is the legal work involved in preparing the sales contract, dealing with finance and the requirements that come with it (i.e. mortgages; caveats and loan documents); and taking all the steps necessary to ensure a commercial or residential property can be successfully purchased or sold and transferred.
While there are licensed conveyancers in the market offering cheap fees, and this option suits for some straightforward transactions, for more complex transactions or in order to receive in-depth advice on more complicated scenarios or related issues, such as loan documents, potential tax consequences, asset protection or the particulars needs of unusual purchaser or vendor (seller) entities, sound legal advice is required.
Drug charges are usually laid under the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 1985 (NSW) (for recreational drugs), and the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Act 1966 (NSW) (for prescription drugs, steroids and others), which creates offences for:
possession of drugs;
supply and trafficking (with the seriousness of the offence depending on the quantities);
aiding and abetting;
possession of drug-use implements
The drugs “prohibited” by the Act are listed in a schedule. They include common street drugs.
We work with different kinds of people who have been charged with a wide range of various offences. These offenses range from: less serious ones such as minor drug possession or drink driving; to more serious ones such as armed robbery or murder.
Our team has worked on complex trials, matters pushing the creation of new precedents, and even matters in the High Court, and we have the knowledge, skills and experience that allows us to approach charges of all types with ease and transparency, to alleviate anxiety and achieve the desired result.
We handle every case with efficiency, offer flexible meeting times and open communication, and remain discrete at all times.
We regularly advise and act for business and individual clients in relation to a wide array of relevant business and commercial matters.
Our clients range from sole traders through to recognised public companies, and our work centres not only on litigation and dispute resolution; but also utilising those skills and that experience in transactional and advisory work to ensure maximum risk minimisation.
Whatever the problem or need, we are only too keen to help, and are awaiting your call.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
Green & Associates showed up in a time in my life I was confused, hurt and lost after a 25 year relationship ended. Mr Green saw my situation for what it was, the truth was established quickly the correct people were contacted the accusations were quashed. This is my one and only brush with criminal law and its good to know that businesses like Green & Associates are out there to help in some often dark confusing times
We've used Green & Associates for all our legal representations and we have found them to be thorough in all our dealings, leaving no stone unturned to gain us the best results. We couldn’t recommend them more. We have employed Green & Associates for a number of different legal requirements. We've found they exert a professionalism that is unsurpassed. With their assistance we were able to navigate through new legal territories we had not experienced, finding their advice and forecast outcomes to be sound. We look forward to employing their services for our future ventures.
Dominic and his team are fantastic solicitors to work with - I cannot recommend them enough.
I was extremely happy with the way my case was handled and the way I was represented. Green & Associates had a great plan of action and worked hard to provide the best outcome for me, which I truly felt was achieved. I would not hesitate to contact them them again if I had other legal issues and I wanted representation. I know Green & Associates have my back.
Dominic was able to resolve my matter quickly and achieve a fantastic result. Green and Associates handled everything so well. It was really reassuring to be dealing with such genuine and professional people. Would highly recommend Dominic and the team at Green and Associates.
I'm relatively new to the Eastern Suburbs and I needed a document to be witnessed. I reached out to my community Facebook group who recommended Green & Associates. The process of making the appointment was seamless. I was warmly greeted by all the staff and Gia was absolutely fantastic in helping with my request. I left feeling very supportive and fully aware of the relevant legal processes I was about to embark upon. I'd highly recommend Green & Associates for all of your professional legal needs.
I've been self employed for 15 years and had several solicitors perform work for me in many areas such as commercial leasing, contract negotiations, franchising, tax compliance, conveyancing and general advice for company structure, strategy and functionality. I was recommended to Green and associates by a friend in 2016 and quickly realised they are the best and have been with them ever since for everything legal; I highly recommend G&A for anyone who needs to get the result they are looking for. They have never let me down and have always maintained crystal clear communication at all times including accurate justification for all works completed.
