[Lin family murders]
After the callous bludgeoning of five family members happened, AHL legal became the legal representative of the Lin family, assisting them in holding a grand and respectable funeral for the deceased free of charge. Our solicitor Daniel Sheen also became temporary guardian to the daughter that survived.
Serious Criminal Law Panel
Many of our criminal lawyers are members of the Serious Criminal Law panel at Legal Aid Australia. Panel membership showcases the amount of experience and respect our lawyers have amongst the legal community.
Overseas students, visitors and those on working holiday visas in Australia are particularly vulnerable to unknowingly laundering money, as criminal organisations often target and take advantage of them. They are frequently asked to open accounts and transfer money for reward. Physical transfer of funds by way of delivery can also amount to money laundering. Cross border money transfers or currency exchanges tend to ensnare otherwise innocent and unsuspecting people.
Money laundering can be a serious charge and is often tried at higher courts, sometimes resulting in many years of imprisonment, something that many clients fail to realise. Hence it is of utmost importance that clients choose competent and experienced lawyers for their defence. We will use our ample experience in this area to aid you throughout the process.
In many cases the parents of overseas students cannot contact their children, and AHL legal helps them re-establish contact. If you suspect your relations have been arrested by the authorities, AHL legal will also help you locate them and if requested, provide them with legal services. For those who are found in detention by the Australian Border Force, AHL legal can assist the detainee in applying for a temporary visa.
