Specialist Criminal Defence Lawyer

Alex is an experienced specialist criminal defence lawyer at CDLA. He is a highly respected, and fierce court room advocate who works around the clock for his clients cases.

Alex knows exactly how to maximise his clients chances at getting the best possible outcome in court. It is because of this that’s given him the reputation for being one of the most talented and strategic defence lawyers around.

Alex is a strong believer in honesty and transparency for his clients when providing legal advice. Because of his passion in criminal defence and justice, Alex works tirelessly on each of his clients cases, while providing reliable, prompt and realistic legal advice, and fierce representation in the court room.

While no lawyer can guarantee the outcome, Alex is able to guarantee that everything that should be done, gets done with timely preparation in every one of his cases. This puts his clients in the best possible position to win. This has contributed towards his high success rate in achieving proven success for his clients. Alex is someone you will want on your side.

Alex has achieved a proven track record of exceptional results, including getting charges withdrawn early, saving his clients the stresses of costly legal fees, and he’s successfully achieved ‘not guilty’ verdicts in the Local and District Courts across NSW.

Alex is truly a respected criminal defence lawyer by both prosecutors and Judges alike. This gives him the ability to be persuasive when negotiating to get charges dropped early for his clients, a focus that most lawyers avoid.

As a master in his chosen field of law, Alex graduated with a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Criminology. He’s also achieved a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice from the College of Law, and has been admitted as a lawyer and barrister by the Supreme Court of NSW. His passion in criminal law is reflected in his desire to protect his client’s rights from oppressive, adverse and illegal conduct by police prosecution.

He specialises in all serious criminal law cases, including, appeals, domestic violence and AVOs, drug possession, supply and importation, white collar crime, crime commission proceedings, Supreme Court bail applications, and serious sexual assault.
