Jonathan Barrera

Senior Associate, LLB, BA, GDLP

Jonathan completed a Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Arts at La Trobe University. A semester of his studies was completed at the State University of New York. He also holds a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice from The College of Law.

Jonathan completed his legal training with the Western Community Legal Centre and then Stary Norton Halphen. He then joined the team as a lawyer in 2016.

Prior to joining the team, Jonathan worked in education for a number of years. He worked closely with disadvantaged youth to assist them in obtaining their secondary school qualifications.

Jonathan’s reflections:

  • I have always held a strong interest in the criminal justice system. My experiences of assisting disadvantaged members of our community have given me strong motivation to continue this passion through criminal defence work.
  • It is essential that clients are given proper access to justice and a fair trial. Every person deserves fair and sound representation. That is my aim when approaching my work.
