Criminal Lawyers Waverly

Waverly is a small suburb in New South Wales, located about 7km east of the Sydney central business district. The suburb was named by Barnett Levey, who built the first house in the district and is said to have been a fan of the book Waverly by Sir Walter Scott. 

It is home to fewer than 5,000 residents and is primarily a residential area, albeit with a few commercial developments. It is also home to the Waverly Local Court, one of the many courts served by the expert Sydney traffic lawyers and criminal lawyers at Lyons Law.

Do I need a lawyer for a criminal or traffic case at Waverly Local Court?

What should I expect during a court appearance at Waverly Local Court?

The NSW Court website contains information about dress code, court etiquette, and more, covering everything you need to know about your first court appearance.

Some of the key takeaways include:

  • You should dress appropriately but don’t need to wear a suit and tie. Just make sure you look neat, clean, and tidy. So, smart-casual is fine, but paint-stained clothing and obscene graphic tees are not.
  • Turn off your phone in the courtroom and don’t take any pictures.
  • Don’t take any weaponry to the court. You may be checked by court security before you enter.
