Sean Bugeia

Criminal Defence Lawyer

Sean Bugeia of CDLA works and specialises exclusively in criminal defence. He graduated from the Macquarie University with a Doctorate Master of Laws and a Bachelor of Science with biology major. A background in science gives Sean a significant competitive advantage over the prosecution, particularly in the field of scientific and forensic evidence typically used in serious sexual assault, murder and manslaughter cases. This also assists in all assault type cases, including domestic violence.

Sean is a peoples person. He strives to attain justice for people who are innocent. He has demonstrated his commitment to this at a very early stage when he was selected to represent his university for an international internship working at the Human Rights Law Network where him and his team achieved outstanding results.

Sean’s interest in criminal law was sparked at an early stage back during his university days. Naturally his empathetic nature and high intellect led him into criminal defence, to use his knowledge and experience in criminal defence to now help innocent people who are accused of serious crimes and to protect their rights.

In order to strive for justice, Sean has achieved exceptional results throughout his career as a lawyer to date. He has helped countless clients achieve justice. This includes fighting hard to get costs awarded for his clients.

Sean is incredibly passionate with a very fierce drive towards fighting hard right to the end with an end goal of achieving nothing short of the best possible result for his clients. He is energetic, pragmatic and creative in his approach to cases in finding the best solutions and defences to an array of criminal law scenarios thanks to his technical and highly intellectual mind.

A criminal charge can be a scary and daunting thing to deal with. Sean understands the imperative values of trust respect and confidence of his clients when they are at their most vulnerable. He is an excellent communicator and combined with his knowledge and skill in criminal law, sets transparent and realistic expectations. He will explore all options and manages to find ways to defend cases that many lawyers overlook.

Sean genuinely cares about his clients, setting him apart from other criminal lawyers.

With Sean by your side, he will work tirelessly until the best solution is found for a case.
