Tyrall Sutherland
Highly recommended, very professional, great out come and just a really good man, I had tried multiple lawyers, 6 or 7 of them from the Perth area, he was the most straight forward and honest one, the rest were humming and haaaring about my case, if it wasn't for Nick Stevenson I would be sitting behind bars right now, thank you Stevenson Legal - best in the business!
Tyson Mabbett
Awesome lawyer would highly recommend to everyone in need of a good lawyer. 100% the man.
Ihaka Raimona
Nick was extremely clear and concise with his advice from the moment I engaged him and was very knowledgeable about the whole process. But most importantly he got the job done and achieved the desired result for myself. Would highly recommend.
Andrew Riley
Nick is a highly competent individual. He immediately honed in on the most advantageous manner to pursue my case without extracting hours of unproductive, frivolous details and costly charges. Innocence is not a forgone conclusion if you don't know how to navigate the legal system. Without his acumen, I would have ignorantly accepted an outcome with unforeseen long-term repercussions. I owe a debt of gratitude for his services. On the day I was required in court, Nick was able to guide me through the procedure and what I should expect. With out his help, I would still be without a license. I have no problem recommending Nick Stevenson to any of my business associates and Look forward to employing his services in the future.
Julie Armstrong
After a terrible experience with another lawyer we sought out the services of Nick for an Extraordinary Drivers Licence application and am so glad we did. Nick is professional and clearly very experienced. He made the process simple for us with the exact outcome we were hoping for. Highly recommend! Thanks again Nick.

Nick from the start made me feel very comfortable and his professionalism around the task at hand was outstanding. Nick's attention to detail, ability to pass on information, knowledge of the laws meant I knew I had the perfect partner. Nick was affordable and organized throughout the whole process I would recommend Nick to all who would be interested. Completely Satisfied!
Mike Evans
My partner found herself in a tricky situation involving a drink driving charge. Nick gave us his professional opinion on how he believed the case would pan out. Everything he said that first day was accurate and resulted in a fantastic outcome for us. Highly recommended. Anyone needing legal advice in regards drink driving matters should do themselves a favour and go see Nick. Thanks again for your help and advice!
Brett Gibson
Nick represented me in a serious traffic offence matter. Outstanding legal argument from him managed to persuade the Magistrate for a spent conviction. I highly recommend Nick. You won’t get much better than him.
Rick Karaitiana
I engaged Stevenson Legal to represent me in my extraordinary license application. At all times Nick was thorough and diligent. This resulted in me being granted an 'E' License which has helped me tremendously. Very happy with the service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!
Ben Martin
I highly recommend Stevenson Legal. From first meeting through court appearance Nick was thorough, rational and honest. His manner and explanation of procedure before entering the courtroom was very reassuring and his presence and knowledge when in court was very impressive. I could not be happier with the outcome.
Marcus P
I recently engaged Nicholas Stevenson of Stevenson Legal to represent me against a charge that carried a substantial fine and imprisonment. Nick was able to obtain a "Spent Conviction" for me. Nick was clearly at ease with the court environment and acted with great competency and professionalism. I highly recommend him.
Alun Dufty
I can highly recommend Nick Stevenson. Without his representation I would not have my extraordinary driver's licence for which I am truly grateful. I can now keep my job which I was in danger of losing. Nick is always available, friendly, understanding and speaks in easy to understand language, never judgemental, Simply the best!
Wendy Andri
Nick is an outstanding lawyer, who doesn't sell you the world and deliver you nothing. He uses he extensive legal knowledge and experience, to give you a defence which will lead to the best outcome in relation to the charge you are facing. He is extremely competent in compiling any evidence which may provide mitigating circumstances to your offence. I would not hesitate to use his services again in the future. A 5/5 lawyer and his fees are money well spent.
Thankyou Nick for a job well done. My partner was looking down the barrel at imprisonment if she did nothing but turn up to court but Nick managed to gain the minimum time off the road and a minimal fine considering what could of been for a major DUI offence. I found Nick to be very thorough and extremely professional. He ticked all the right boxes on the day!! Thanks again Nick!!
Sean Osborne
Nick was very professional in the handling of my son Adam’s application for his Extraordinary Drivers Licence. Nick is very direct and honest we thought our son would get refused but Nick’s preparation and legal knowledge got our son through this dark chapter. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nick, Thanks again Nick!
Karen Bowers
Highly recommend Nick he has helped me with 2 cases first one lifting a life licence ban and now getting my extraordinary licence condition changed to allow me a truck licence when the prosecutors objected to it. Both cases he was successful. Very knowledgeable with law and great help HIGHLY RECOMMEND👍👍👍👍
Damien Jurgens
This experience of losing my licence has been one of the toughest to deal with but dealing with Nick Stevenson has been one of the best outcomes I could have imagined. His professionalism and attention to detail in his organisational skills are second to none and made my court experience feel like a breeze. I was honoured my extraordinary licence by the judge on the day with no fuss whatsoever. Thank you Nick Stevenson I am very pleased I chose you to be my lawyer through a tough situation. Thank you!
Jarrod Coote
Nick was very professional from the onset with my case. Nick informed me of all required information throughout the whole process and made it very simple and stress free. I applied for EDL which was required for work purposes. Due to a thorough collection of supporting documents and a extensive justification as to why my EDL was necessary we were successful. Not only were we successful in being granted my EDL but all desired outcomes were achieved, only the mandatory restrictions were applied to my EDL. Due to the successful outcome of my hearing I have been able to continue with my employment without any worry or repercussions and most importantly loss of income. I can't thank Nick enough for his efforts and I highly recommend anyone who finds themself in a similar situation to seek his services asap to achieve the best possible outcome. Thankyou again Nick!
I was first introduced to Nick Stevenson from Stevenson Legal in December 2013. My Licence was cancelled and I was required to apply for an Extraordinary Drivers Licence. From the first meeting with Nick, I was so impressed with his high attention to detail and customer service. He helped me organize all the information required, His Focus on Completing Task and working collaboratively to ensure a consist approach was shared. On the day I was required in Court, Nick was able to guild me though the procedure and what I should expect. Without his help, I would still be without a licence. I have No Problem recommending Nick Stevenson to any of my Business Associates and Look forward to employing his services in the future.

Criminal Charges

By enlisting Stevenson Legal, clients ensure they have the very best possible criminal defence, constructed by some of the top criminal lawyers in Perth.

Navigating the criminal justice system can be a daunting task without a local team of Perth criminal lawyers. There are complex areas of law in Western Australia, including rules of evidence, rules of cross examination, statutory interpretation and case law that only a Perth criminal lawyer can assist you with.

Traffic Charges

When you are represented by a Stevenson Legal traffic lawyer, they will look at every facet of your case to advise whether you have a workable defence to the traffic charge in question. In the case a defence is not possible, our traffic lawyers can help to obtain the lowest fine and period of disqualification possible.

Drink Driving

Drink driving charges are one of the most common ways that a person comes into contact with the criminal justice system. The effects can be far reaching as drink driving offences often attract significant monetary penalties and periods of disqualification.
If a drink driving charge is threatening to impact on your life, it’s worth getting advice from an experienced drink driving lawyer in Perth.

Assault Charges

If you’re facing assault charges, there are other less obvious defences that may be available, particularly if you are alleged to have assaulted a public, or police officer.

Stevenson Legal is experienced in dealing with assault law in Perth and we will look at all aspects of assault law to get you the best result possible.

Restraining Orders

Stevenson Legal is aware of the costs implications of going to a trial on a Violence Restraining Order or Misconduct Restraining Order matter which is why, if appropriate, we always try to get a negotiated resolution of the matter without the need for a court hearing. However, if the matter does ‘box on’ to trial, we are well placed to advise our client’s on their likely position with respect to costs, and argue the same in court.

Extraordinary Drivers Licences

At Stevenson Legal, we have made literally hundreds of applications with an extremely high success rate. The reason isn’t luck.
