Profile

Cameron’s practice is focused on defending matters relating to criminal law, traffic law, bail, and family violence matters.

 

Cameron comes to the bar after the last 8 years as a prosecutor with Victoria Police.  In this role he ran matters in the Magistrates’ Court and Children’s Court on a daily basis , ranging from mention court to contested hearings, including  family violence, intervention orders and bail applications.  

 

Admitted to the Supreme Court of Victoria in 2013, Cameron has been seconded to the Civil Litigation Unit, Commissions and Inquiries Division and the VGSO (Police Branch); which gave him experience in civil trials relating to torts, coronial inquests, royal commissions and the provision of complex legal advice.  He was also in charge of Supreme Court bail applications that were on appeal from the Magistrates’ Court, regularly appearing in that jurisdiction on bail matters.

 

Upon promotion to sergeant, he was in charge of the Sex Offence Team at Melbourne, running sex offence matters in the Magistrates’ and Children’s Court.

 

Cameron also spent 13 years in Highway Patrol, where he could not believe he was being paid to ride a motorbike.  This also gave him a keen insight into traffic law and the defences available to motorists.  

 

Cameron is reading with Mr Pardeep Tiwana and his senior mentor is Mr Patrick Tehan QC.
