Tyson holds a Juris Doctor (JD) from RMIT University, a GDLP from ANU and a Bachelor of Business from Swinburne University. Tyson is admitted to the Supreme Court and the High Court of Australia. Formerly a Judge's Associate in the District Court of NSW, Tyson has first-hand experience on what is required by the courts and gained valuable insight into the expectations of a Judge. This experience translates to Tyson being a more effective and persuasive advocate for his clients in court.
Tyson has extensive experience and has always practiced exclusively in Criminal and Traffic Law, having successfully represented clients in a wide range of criminal matters, including bail applications, alcohol and drug offences, assault, ADVO, mental health applications, appeals in the District Court, fraud, weapons offences and driving offences.
Often, Tyson is successful in negotiating charges down to lesser offences or have them dismissed entirely before going to court. He has a reputation as a straight shooter, which is appreciated by his clients, the courts and when negotiating with police to amend or withdraw charges. Tyson has a no-nonsense view of life and the law, which is both direct and approachable. His ability to relate to his clients and explain complex legal issues in an understandable way is one of his key attributes.
