Doogue + George are a specialist Melbourne criminal law firm and one of Australia’s leading firms, co-founding the Australian Defence Lawyer’s Alliance.
Partner Bill Doogue was acting for the Aboriginal Legal Service in the early 1990s as a criminal lawyer when he decided to start a firm that specialized in criminal law. The first office was in Broadmeadows in 1995. This was followed in 2001 by a Melbourne office and an office was opened in December 2008 at Heidelberg. In February 2013, the firm merged with Andrew George solicitors to become Doogue + George.
With a team of accomplished specialist criminal lawyers, the firm has defended over 10,000 criminal prosecutions and appear daily in all Victorian Courts from the Court of Appeal to every suburban and regional Magistrates’ Court.
Doogue + George has defended a number of the largest Commonwealth and State prosecutions over the last 5 years, including high profile cases, amongst others, former Federal Member of Parliament Andrew Theophanous’s trial on corruption charges and Abdul Nacer Benbrika in the first major terrorism trial in Australia in 2008.
Doogue + George knows Criminal Law. With a total of fifteen criminal lawyers who handle only criminal matters, Doogue + George is one of the largest criminal law practices in Victoria.
