Calvin represented me in a high-profile matter which resulted in a District Court trial, in which I was ultimately acquitted.
The matter had the potential to be devastating to my private and professional life. Calvin's support and assistance through this time was unwavering.
From my first contact with Calvin on learning of the investigation until the verdict being read, I knew I was in the best of hands.
He is, to my mind, one the best white-collar crime and discipline lawyers in Queensland. His record speaks for itself. Above all that, he got me through one of the worst times in my life and I could not have asked for a more patient, competent and supportive lawyer.
I was referred to Calvin and his team by my Union in November 2018 after a complaint was made against me. Calvin immediately understood my position and made me feel at ease. The internal discipline complaint then turned into a criminal complaint. This really shocked me. Calvin’s advice regarding the criminal matter was pivotal in what would eventuate. Some 22 months later the criminal matter went to trial. Calvin and the barrister won the legal arguments and the Magistrate granted a permanent stay of prosecution due to an abuse of process in the criminal investigation. To say this was a relief is an understatement.
My complaint then went down the internal discipline path. This was something that I was not prepared for. Calvin and I had several meetings and phone conversations prior to being interviewed. The detail of preparation Calvin went into was second to none. He prepared me mentally for the interview and our position was firm and has never changed since 2018. After the interview Calvin reassured me and I left feeling confident that we had provided a confident and suitable response to all the questions put to me.
Without Calvin and his teams knowledge not only in criminal matters but also workplace discipline matters, I don’t think I would still be gainfully employed. His knowledge of criminal law, workplace law and my workplace policies and procedures is a credit to him. I am forever grateful for his compassion, enthusiasm and knowledge for helping me through what is the most traumatic workplace experience I have ever had.
Calvin was extremely knowledgeable and professional in my dealings with him before the QSC. A potentially complex matter arising late in the process was handled exceptionally. I would have no hesitation in recommending Calvin.
Calvin you came highly recommended and we are so glad to have engaged with you, thank you. I now refer to you as the “four out of four solicitor”, two major government organizations being the Queensland Racing integrity Commission (QRIC) and the Queensland Racing Crime Squad (QRCS) initiated proceedings against the four of us, charging us under the Animal Care and Protection Act, a complete and utter injustice, with your assistance, perseverance and expertise you turned a very unacceptable wrong into a right, and well… “The results speak for themselves” four persons charged, four persons discharged and cost awarded.
I’ve worked with Cal professionally over many years. He’s a very genuine man who’s always trying to get the best outcome.....he’s a true professional with peoples best interest at heart ... keep him in mind if you need support.
Was fortunate enough to be referred to Calvin Gnech and my experience was a very positive one. I found Calvin to be both professional and respectful in his approach. Having excellent communication skills, he provided clear and straightforward advice. He had the ability to put my mind at ease and I felt safe in his care.
I am delighted to recommend Calvin's services to anyone in need.
Calvin Gnech believed in my innocence after our first meeting and worked tirelessly with compassion and tenacity over a period of just under three years to prove my innocence. Calvin provided me advice and expertly represented me within the Magistrates Court after a criminal charge, misconduct hearings within the public sector and at QCAT.
Our dealings with Calvin were above and beyond our expectations. His complete understanding of both our DVO and QCAT cases were a testament to his knowledge of the law. His approach to our cases were explained in a easy to understand manner and communicated clearly to us which helped relieve the stress we were under. We could not have had a better outcome with both our cases being dismissed. We would highly recommend Calvin and his Legal Firm to anyone needing legal representation.
I was charged with offences that were ultimately proven to be false and misleading that were inadequately investigated from the beginning. The charges, being of a criminal nature, had potential to not only affect my employment (current and future). From the beginning, both Calvin and Elisabeth were genuinely compassionate, empathetic and most of all patient and understanding towards my emotional wellbeing during what was one of the most horrendous experiences. Calvin and his team conducted such a thorough investigation of the facts and evidence that not only proved my innocence but completely broke the credibility of the complaint/charges I was facing and as a result my matter was withdrawn prior to trial with no evidence to offer.
It is clear that Gnech and Associates go above and beyond with their clients. Although it was never expected, I received responses to emails on weekends, returned phone calls/messages after business hours and was even contacted by Elisabeth when I unknowingly emailed her on a day off. To me, that is outstanding. Calvin has ensured that his staff have the same dedication and ambition as himself to strive to find the truth, provide exceptional client care and guide each client through the difficult and overwhelming court process. I highly recommend Gnech and Associates as a trustworthy and professional law firm.
