Jarrod's Reflections:

  • We should all have access to a transparent system of law and be empowered to be represented against the resources of the state
  • At a time of often crisis in people's lives, I seek to provide calm and experienced representation and ensure they have a clear understanding of their rights and the workings of the Criminal System
  • The job of a Criminal Lawyer is to give meaning and substance to the concept of "innocent until proven guilty"
