Carmine Santone, Santone Lawyers

Carmine commenced his career as a legal officer and claims manager with a leading insurance company, where he worked for approximately 4 years.

Carmine was then admitted as a legal practitioner of the Supreme Court of New South Wales on 6 June 1997.

He worked in private practice for a number of law firms, where he practised in a variety of jurisdictions, specialising in litigation.

In 2004 Carmine joined a large national litigation practice as a Senior Associate and was responsible for successfully completing large-scale litigation.

In 2007 he was given the responsibility of opening a new branch of the practice at Parramatta. Under his leadership, the Parramatta practice became a prominent venture in Western Sydney.

In 2008, Carmine was awarded an Accreditation in Personal Injury Law by the Law Society of NSW. Accordingly, Carmine specialises in workers’ compensation, motor vehicle accident claims and public liability claims.

Accredited Specialists are recognised by the Law Society as experienced and competent litigators. They must pass rigorous examinations testing their detailed knowledge, matter preparation, problem solving abilities and advocacy skills.

Carmine can also assist in advising whether in addition to your compensation claim, you may have an additional claim if pursuant to your superannuation policy (for total and permanent disability or income protection).

In 2011 Carmine was appointed to the Legal Aid Civil Law Panel.

Carmine performs pro bono work for a number of organisations, including community legal centres, such as Marrickville Legal Centre. A centrepiece of Carmine's practice continues to be the provision of pro bono work for disadvantaged members of the community who need legal assistance.

Since admission, it is estimated that Carmine has successfully represented well over 3000 clients.

Carmine enjoys baseball, golf and reading, but most of all, spending time with his family.
