Act To Endanger Life

If a person without lawful excuse does an act or omission knowing that act or omission is likely to endanger the life of another and intending to endanger the life of another or being recklessly indifferent.

Assault Charges

The offence of assault can vary widely in seriousness and outcome. An assault is an unlawful display of force that creates in the mind of the victim a fear that the force is about to be applied

Domestic Violence

A person may be charged with a criminal offence that derives from family or domestic violence. In this context, violence is not limited to only physical harm however, it can be identified as being emotional, financial or psychological control.


Manslaughter is a serious criminal offence. Manslaughter is often an alternative charge to Murder. If found guilty imprisonment normally follows and a suspended term of imprisonment is not common.


There is no doubt if you are charged with Murder or Manslaughter the potential consequences are very serious indeed and legal representation of some kind is essential.


Robbery is a serious offence and punishable by life imprisonment. It can involve sophisticated planning and preparation such as may occur with a bank robbery, through to a spur of the moment incident where violence is used to steal another person’s phone or shoes.

Theft and Stealing

Theft is a serious offence contrary to section 134 of the Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1935 (SA). It carries a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment for a basic offence, and 15 years imprisonment for an aggravated offence.

Hinder & or Resist Police

The duty of a police officer, whether they be on or off duty, is to maintain the peace and protection of the community. In some circumstances, police officers maybe required to lawfully interfere with a person(s) to prevent a crime from occurring or if there is reasonable belief that a crime has already occurred

Vivian was successful and my matter resolved quickly. I think Woods and Co , especially Vivian Ngo, are worth their weight in gold! Thank you again Ferruccio Cardellini ( Fish )

I would like to draw attention to the excellent and professional conduct of Ben chehade at woods and co, he worked tirelessly, and communicated with my partner and I every step of the process, After hours included to put together a genuine supporting argument to secure me a favourable result on a criminal matter, I will make it clear that breaking the law will always draw a penalty I know this first hand, And all people make mistakes, I'm not proud of it. But with a energetic, confident lawyer like Ben on your side he will secure you a fantastic and fair result !!!!! To Ben I say thankyou!!!

They are reliable, honest and operate with integrity. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for some great legal advocacy and support. Ben always takes the time to answer any questions I may have, and provides me with all the options available. As a new with a legal matter, it can be difficult to find a suitable lawyer. I was lucky to be connected to Ben. On another note, their charges were also very reasonable to the services they provided.
