SCOTT BELCHER. Ballarat's most senior crime lawyer. Admitted to practice in 1995. During the last 26 years I have always practised in criminal law, with the last 22 years appearing in the Magistrates Court and County Court of Victoria, representing thousands of clients. I like to finalise a case without delay or extra legal costs. I don't like adjournments, unless for very good reason. I'm ready to proceed at 930am, if a court is available to hear your case. You should be at court at 9am, not 10am. It often avoids a long wait behind other cases. As well as guilty pleas in mitigation, I'm also happy to conduct a Not Guilty plea / CONTEST. I also conduct opposed bail applications, or contested intervention order applications. Privately funded, not VLA.
