Criminal Lawyer – 1-3 Years PAE

Our Lilydale based firm has a need for a criminal lawyer who is looking for a varied and fulfilling role in a supportive, positive workplace.

The successful applicant will have prior experience in criminal law and have exemplary advocacy skills and be able to appear in all jurisdictions in Victoria.

In this role you would represent clients in court on a wide array of criminal matters and intervention orders from start to finish.

While the role will be predominantly criminal law based there will be the opportunity, especially initially while a file load is being built, to branch out into other areas of general legal practice. Prior experience in other areas of general practice, therefore – whether that be victims of crime, personal injury, or wills and estates, etc – would therefore be looked on favourably but not required.

This role will be based at our Lilydale office, however there will be an expectation that the successful applicant be willing to work at least one day a week from our Berwick office in Melbourne’s South Eastern suburbs.

Travel would also of course be required to all metropolitan and regional courts across Victoria as needed, therefore a drivers license and vehicle is a must.
