When it comes to criminal offences, there is no doubt that you will need a professional and experienced team of lawyers to ensure the best possible outcome on your case.
If the Court finds you guilty of a criminal offence, it can have both short term and long lasting impacts on your life. Having a criminal record can impact your ability to travel, find employment or secure housing. Furthermore, some criminal offences carry prison term penalties, meaning you could also lose your immediate freedom.
Therefore, it’s essential to protect yourself and seek legal representation from a criminal law firm such as LY Lawyers Parramatta to defend your case. Our Parramatta team consists of experienced criminal lawyers, offering round the clock legal services to help you during these stressful times and achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

Understanding the Criminal Law Process in Parramatta
Depending on the severity of the criminal charge, you may be required to attend either the Parramatta Local Court, the District Court or the Supreme Court.
To find the type of Court that will be hearing your case, you can refer to your Court Attendance Notice or bail application. These documents will provide the location, time, date and other necessary information for your upcoming hearing.
Parramatta Local Court
Parramatta Local Court deals with hearings for bail applications, appeals against a conviction’s severity, or sentencing. A key characteristic of the Local Court is that a magistrate will deal with your hearing without the presence of jurors.
Parramatta Local Court typically hears most criminal offences, such as:
- Supply, manufacture, cultivation or importation of prohibited drugs.
- Assault (including sexual assault and other sex-related offences)
- Hearings for bail applications
Meanwhile, Parramatta District Court (known as Sydney West Trial Courts) will include a jury and deals with more severe criminal offences. This involves the same offences listed above to a higher degree. For example, more severe assault or drug charges can be promoted to the District Court.
The District Court is located near Parramatta Local Court, just six buildings away (6 George St, Parramatta).
Parramatta Children’s Court
Parramatta Children’s Court is also located on George Street next to the District Court.
The Children’s Court particularly deals with cases involving young people under 18 or people who committed an alleged offence whilst under 18.
