I am a Criminal Defence Lawyer with more than 35 years experience and an Accredited [court & trial] Advocacy Specialist , being certified by the Law Society of NSW and my peers to that effect. The basic principle of good advocacy involves preparation and persuasive presentation of a case requiring detailed analysis and communication skills to achieve a successful result.
I attended the University of Sydney graduating with LLB , was admitted as a solicitor to the Supreme Court of NSW and the High Court of Australia. I became a partner of Marsden’s Law Group and then set up my own Criminal Law firm .
I do and have appeared daily in the Local Courts of NSW, Queensland and Victoria, District Court of NSW [ sentence and jury trials] ,Supreme Court of NSW & Queensland [bail , other applications & trials] CCA & Court of Appeal . As well in many complex criminal cases I instruct and assist leading senior & junior counsel in those courts including in the High Court of Australia , in Canberra where we have received ground breaking judgements and created precedent law.
I am on Legal Aid NSW’s senior Criminal Law Panels. I have also appeared over the years in ICAC & other Commissions and Tribunal.
