WHAT CHARGES CAN WE REPRESENT
Peta Eyschen first began her legal career as a Police Prosecutor for the Queensland Police Service. Appearing almost daily in the Southport Magistrates Court in thousand of criminal law and domestic violence matters over a 12 year period, Peta quickly gained a respected reputation with the judiciary and legal fraternity for her extraordinary advocacy skills and her common sense approach to resolving matters efficiently and fairly.
Many solicitors who represent their clients in criminal matters often don’t appreciate that relationship breakups, losing access to children and being in protracted family law proceedings can often be a catalyst for offending. Recognising this early Peta added Family Law advocacy to her repertoire in private practice. Her seasoned experience in court makes her a natural advocate in this jurisdiction and other lawyers know her for her ability to negotiate difficult matters, collaborate on sensitive issues and obtain results which are child focused. In 2012, Peta was responsible for training all Police Prosecutors in the Gold Coast district in the changes which came with the Domestic and Family Violence Protection Act 2012 cementing her as one of the original stakeholders in a highly politicised yet personal arena.
Since being admitted to the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 2012 and the High Court of Australia in 2013, Peta has gained a new reputation as a fierce yet measured advocate in both the criminal, domestic violence and family law jurisdictions. Fifteen years of experience on “both sides of the table” means that she knows the system.
