Profile

Cameron’s practice is focused on Intervention Orders specifically.  In additon, his practice is generally focused in all facets of the Magistrates Court for criminal and quasi-criminal 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 - and brings these skills to his practice at the Bar.

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

Soon after being called to the Bar, Cameron spent almost a year, briefed by Victoria Police, for the Royal Commission into the Management of Police Informants (Lawyer X).  

After his time with the Royal Commission, his practice has had a much greater focus on briefs for Intervention Orders in the Magistrates' Court - and welcomes briefs in this area - in addition to briefs for criminal and quasi-criminal matters.

Cameron read with Mr Pardeep Tiwana (now County Court Judge Tiwana) and his senior mentor is Mr Patrick Tehan QC.
