About Us | Print |

Stephen Mainstone, the Principal of the firm, has extensive experience within the criminal justice system since 1984, having been a New South Wales Police Officer for almost 18 years. During that time Stephen performed General Duties, was a qualified Detective and Police Prosecutor and was a legal adviser to a number of the New South Wales Police major crime squads, including the Homicide Squad, Child Protection Enforcement Agency, Fraud Squad and Violent and Major Offenders Unit.


During his time advising the major crime squads, Stephen was part of the New South Wales Police Legal Team that was awarded the 2001 Excellence Award for Government Legal Service by The Law Society of New South Wales.


Since leaving the Police Force in 2002, he has worked primarily as a criminal defence lawyer in a variety of matters from the most serious criminal charges to traffic related matters such as drink driving, as well as appearing on behalf of clients regarding applications for apprehended violence orders, firearms licensing, security licensing and freedom of information applications.


He also appears regularly in the District Court of New South Wales in appeals, either by way of maintaining a plea of not guilty or on the basis of the severity of a penalty given in the Local Court.


Stephen and his administrative staff are only too happy to assist with any inquiry as to our services during our business hours of 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Appointments can be made outside of these hours where necessary.


We are a short walk from Cronulla Railway Station with street and council provided parking is available close to our office.
