Jack holds dual degrees from the Queensland University of Technology, a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and a Bachelor of Justice majoring in Criminology and Policing. He is admitted as a lawyer in the Supreme Court of Queensland.
Jack long aspired to pursue a career in criminal law. This aspiration was fuelled by experience he obtained throughout his studies at the Youth Advocacy Centre (YAC), a community legal centre dedicated to providing pro bono legal defence to vulnerable young people. This gave him an insight into advocacy in action, seeing everything from duty lawyer responsibilities to preparation for trials before the Children’s Court. This experience solidified Jack’s aspiration to become a criminal lawyer.
Jack’s experience has also taught him that, like every person, every case is different. He understands that everyone’s life experiences and personal circumstances are unique. He appreciates that it takes time and effort to build strong relationships with his clients and gain the insights required to best present their case to the Court.
