SCOTT BELCHER BA LLB. Admitted to practice in 1995. During 23 years of general practice I have always practised in criminal law, with the last 19 years practising in the Magistrates Court of Victoria and the County Court of Victoria, representing clients in thousands of cases. I like to resolve a case as quickly as possible to avoid delay and extra legal costs. I am not a fan of the adjournment unless it is for very good reason. I understand that a case can cause a client anxiety so I will do my best to finalise a case as soon as possible. I am usually ready to proceed with a case at 930am if a court is available to hear the case, so it often avoids a lengthy wait behind other cases listed that day.
