Who we are

We are a boutique criminal defence firm based in Brisbane, Queensland. Boutique as in small, efficient, and not held back by administration, staffing issues, and paperwork that takes away from what really matters — your case.

We made the deliberate decision to remain small, so we don’t have sprawling offices, countless staff and expensive overheads that try to persuade you that you’ll get a better result. The only thing that matters to us as a criminal defence law firm is the outcome we achieve for you.

Who will actually be representing me?

Unlike most other criminal law firms in Queensland, at George Criminal Lawyers there’s no chance of your case being handed off to an unqualified law student or law graduate, or to the most junior lawyer in the team.

Our Principal lawyer Andrew George is personally assigned to each matter from start to finish, and brings over 13 years of experience in criminal law to the table.

About Andrew George

Andrew George is a native of Brisbane, and spent his formative years in the charming suburbs of Brookfield and Kenmore Hills in the city’s western suburbs. Educated at Brisbane Boys College and Corinda State High School, he gained exposure to diverse communities, shaping his understanding of people from various walks of life. In 2010, he earned his law degree from Queensland University of Technology and worked for a number of different criminal law firms, before establishing George Criminal Lawyers in January 2020.

Beyond his professional pursuits, Andrew loves spending time in the company of his partner, children, and cherished Golden Retriever. He loves listening to music, strumming his guitar, and dreaming of the next chance he can find time to hit the ski slopes with his busted knees.

Guaranteed experience

We practice in all areas of criminal and traffic law, regulatory law, and professional disciplinary matters. We are widely recognised as a leading law firm in Queensland for child exploitation material (CEM) and child abuse material (CAM) charges, as well as for charges involving sexual offences committed against children and adults.

We’ve been to most courts in Queensland, as well as interstate to places including New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. As a result, we’ve gained priceless experience and insight into how different courts work, and what needs to be done to secure the best possible outcome.
