Criminal Law

Queensland Legal Practice criminal defence lawyers are fearless in protecting our clients’ interests. We are at the forefront of criminal defence work, constantly deploying ground-breaking legal, human rights and public interest arguments and scientific evidence on behalf of our clients.

The Queensland Legal Practice team are committed to criminal defence work, and to the way in which we carry this out on our clients’ behalf.

Members of Queensland Legal Practice frequently defend in serious and high profile cases. We are experienced at managing and advising on the media publicity these cases often attract, and which, we know, can be one of the most distressing aspects of being prosecuted. Of course, we also act in cases where there is no publicity, but where the issues and potential consequences for our clients are equally serious, and in all our cases we are aware of the personal strain that can be involved.

Queensland Legal Practice is used to facing formidable and best resourced prosecution agencies. We have the experience and skills to match these prosecutors, and they respect and acknowledge Queensland Legal Practice’s expertise when we represent any defendant in one of their prosecutions.

Queensland Legal Practice will work with the best experts available in order to ensure that the most compelling and reliable expert evidence is obtained to support our clients’ cases. We instruct highly skilled barristers because we believe in briefing the best person for the job and our experience ensures we are able to identify that person.

Queensland Legal Practice offers advice and representation throughout all stages of criminal investigations and proceedings – before arrest, at the police station, before charges are brought and during court proceedings in the Magistrates Court, District Court and the Supreme Court.
