Lawyers at Sydney-based Ainsley Law have announced that it is now offering free assistance to drivers and operators with upcoming court cases in NSW.

"These are hard times for the whole country. Over the last 12 months we’ve seen the transport industry step up time and again to keep the country running in difficult times. From carting hay in the drought, to bringing supplies to bushfire affected towns and now keeping industry open during COVID-19," Ainsley Law says.

"The team at Ainsley Law recognises the industry’s hard work and wants to say thank you.

"They understand that there is significant disruption in the transport industry.

"Many families are also suffering financially and are worried for their loved ones’ health.

"The last thing you need right now is to worry about your court case."

Ainsley Law says, for those facing an upcoming court date for a heavy vehicle charge in NSW, it is offering:

  • Free advice on whether you need to attend
  • Free assistance to adjourn your case without attending court.

Ainsley Law advises to bear in mind that the NSW Local Court has changed how it operates during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are restrictions about who is allowed to attend court. Some cases are being automatically postponed, and the rules are changing daily.

To take advantage of this offer visit Ainsley Law’s website www.ainsleylaw.com.au or call 0416 224 601.
