Tom was admitted as an Australian Lawyer after graduating with a Bachelor of Laws with Honours, and completing a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice, where criminal law, advocacy and the passion to practise as a criminal defence lawyer, where always at the forefront of his studies.
Prior to joining Dribbin and Brown Criminal Lawyers, Tom worked for two years, as an assistant to a senior criminal defence barrister, taking instructions, attending trials and assisting in preparing legal submissions and pleas of guilty. Tom also worked on serious criminal matters, including rape, indecent assaults, culpable driving and aggravated burglary.
This experience, coupled with his integrity, passion and commitment towards justice, has helped shape him into the lawyer that he is today.
Tom firmly believes that every accused person deserves a just and equitable hearing and understands the important role defence lawyers play in ensuring both justice and equity.
Tom regularly appears in the Magistrates’ Court, in mentions, plea hearings, contest mentions and bail applications and his natural confidence, knowledge and amicable manner, endear him to both his clients and the Court.
