I have been at the bar since 1993. I initially practised in both criminal law and family law and have always done Intervention Order work.After doing many criminal jury trials in my first dozen years at the bar I made the decision to cease criminal law and to only practise in Family Law and the Intervention Order jurisdiction. My background in both jurisdictions has provided an excellent overlap for all areas of Intervention orders.
