We have dedicated ourselves to being the best technical lawyers, and also the most understanding, reassuring and trustworthy experts in Victoria.


William Archer Defence Lawyers is the only traffic law firm in Victoria.  We practise in driving while suspended or disqualified, drink and drug driving, unpaid fines and all traffic law matters in the Magistrates' Court.

We will manage your case at every stage to help relieve the stress, minimise your penalty and, where possible, save your licence. William Archer Defence Lawyers listen to your story and prepare your case thoroughly so that we get you the best result.

We will talk to you at the outset about fees and will provide a fixed written fee so you know exactly how much it will cost before we commence any work.

Before I put this matter behind me forever, I must thank you so much again. Your professionalism, honesty and non judgemental approach certainly helped. I still cannot believe that I have kept my licence. You really are a credit to your profession.

Engaging your services was the best thing that I could have done.

There is no chance I would have had the skill to negotiate the way you did - assessing the magistrate and anticipating the way she might respond...

Thank you so much. I don’t know how I even contemplated representing myself.

The whole experience was not one that I would want to go through again, but it was a privilege watching you work.

My family and I are very grateful for the sensitive way you handled my case and the comfort you gave us.

Quality Advice, professional, with compassion, and empathy. Takes all the anxiety and worry out of a stressful, serious and emotional event. Leave it to this expert to obtain the best outcome for your case. If you require someone to represent you, I highly recommend William Archer due to their broad experience, dedication to the individual. They achieved a result that would not have been possible without their dedication. It is a must to be represented if you are going to court or just need direction or advice.
