Jack is based at our Melbourne office and regularly appears in the Melbourne Magistrates Court as well as other suburban and regional courts.
Jack has experience in a wide variety of summary and indictable cases. He has defended clients charged with weapons offences, driving offences, drug offences and assault offences.
He has had great success negotiating diversions and good behaviour bonds for his clients.
Jack was admitted to practice in August 2018. He has completed a Bachelor of Law and a Bachelor of Arts with a major in criminology.
During his studies Jack focused on developing his interest in criminal law. He completed placements at organisations with a focus on delivering justice to the over-represented and often marginalised people in our society, such as Victoria Legal Aid, Flemington-Kensington Legal Centre and the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency (NAAJA) in the Northern Territory. Jack gained crucial insight and understanding of the legal profession by assisting clients and working closely with senior lawyers in a broad range of summary and indictable crime.
Criminal law appeals to Jack because a criminal advocate passionately explores all the circumstances affecting their client and allows their story to be heard. Most importantly an advocate helps their client tell their story. Jack appreciates that many situations for people facing charges in court are multifaceted and require understanding and competence to achieve sound resolution. Jack is motivated to provide this service to a high quality for each person he represents.
