      Criminal Lawyers Newcastle

      Astor Legal have a lengthy track record of success which places us amongst the best Newcastle criminal lawyers.

      Our team is led by Mr Avinash Singh, who is one of Australia’s most respected and highly sought-after Newcastle lawyers, having represented some of Australia’s elite sportspeople including Olympians & National Rugby League (NRL) players. His client list has included names such as rugby league great, Andrew Johns.

      He has also been recognised by the Law Society of New South Wales as an Accredited Specialist in Criminal Law, placing us in the top 6% of lawyers in the state.

      Our team’s recent notable cases include a successful appeal to the High Court which transformed the landscape of Evidence law in Australia and resulted in the prosecution being unable to present any evidence against our client. Our lawyers also represented the son of a prominent overseas government official and obtained ‘not guilty’ verdicts for multiple sexual assault charges. You can view some of these recent cases by clicking here.

      We pride ourselves on regularly having cases withdrawn before they proceed to a final hearing, particularly when it comes to apprehended violence orders (AVOs). This is from years of experience as the leading criminal law firm in Newcastle and our dedication to going above and beyond in each client’s specific case.
