Doogue + George have run some of the largest appeal cases before the Victorian Court of Appeal running including appeals against murder convictions and many appeals against sex trial convictions. We brief the top appellate Barristers in Victoria to handle our Court of Appeal matters.
To determine if a firm has handled many appeals, you should go to the AustLII site that publishes appeals and search Victorian Court of Appeal cases for our name. Enter “Doogue” into the search terms to see some cases we have been involved in.
Do the same with the other lawyers that you are looking at. If a firm has not appeared much in the Higher Courts, they may still be good appellate lawyers. You just need to ask them questions about their appeal practise before you engage them.
