Jury Trials

When the firm was established, Director Emma Turnbull focused the development of the practice on the defence of serious indictable crime in the County and Supreme Courts. These cases commence as committal proceedings in the Magistrates’ Court.

The firm has one of the largest indictable crime practices in Victoria. This means you benefit from our extensive and varied experience in jury trials. We are not lawyers who focus on small matters in the Magistrates’ Court and dabble in a few trials, we are lawyers who are committed to the defence of serious allegations involving major litigation.

Our expertise means you gain the benefit of our established network of professionals, including trial barristers, expert witnesses, and forensic investigators to assist in the preparation of your defence. Our lawyers have experience in running jury trials all over Victoria (and interstate).

We understand and appreciate the significant stress that facing trial can have on an accused person and their family. It is important to ensure that both your legal and personal interests are protected during the process. We will fight for your legal position and assist with referrals for your emotional support during the process.  One of the stressors you can take away is instructing experienced, specialist defence lawyers to defend your case. To gain an appreciation of our experience in defending matters in the County and Supreme Courts, you can view a number of reported cases we have worked on here.
