Peter Murphy Criminal Law


Peter Murphy Criminal Law has represented parties in all criminal jurisdictions with considerable success since 1998.

We have provided effective legal representation in all types of criminal matters including murder, armed robbery, sexual assaults, major fraud matters, Centrelink fraud, the importation, manufacture, supply and possession of prohibited drugs, serious assaults, malicious damage, break and enter and child pornography offences.

We have conducted numerous trials in the Supreme and District Courts, and have stopped matters from going to trial by winning committal hearings in Local Courts without instructing counsel.

We represent appellants in the Court of Criminal Appeal.

We have represented clients at commission hearings including Royal Commissions, the NSW Crime Commission, the Independent Commission Against Corruption (I.C.A.C.) and the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (L.E.C.C.) (formerly the Police Integrity Commission). We are on the Legal Representation Office Referral Panel.

We have represented clients at coronial inquests and enquiries under the Coroners Act.

Our offices are conveniently located in the Sydney CBD near the Downing Centre Local and District Courts and close to Central Local Court. The Sydney Supreme Court is also within walking distance.

We are committed to personal service.

We will represent clients interstate as well as Newcastle, Wollongong and NSW country centers.

We accept assignments from the Legal Aid Commission of NSW and are members of the Serious Crime, General Crime and Prisoners’ Legal Service Panels.

Your first appointment will be free and without obligation.

If your matter requires a barrister’s specialist services, we can recommend and retain appropriate counsel for your matter.  We regularly consult, brief and instruct counsel from leading barristers’ chambers in Sydney and Parramatta as well as the Public Defenders’ Office.
