My family and I live on the Northern Beaches, where we spend most weekends at Manly beach or chasing my son around various local playgrounds. I co-founded Karim + Nicol Lawyers with a vision of establishing a practice that was accessible, committed to staying up to date with the law and fearless in its representation of clients. Our goal is to provide high quality and experienced representation at an affordable cost. I absolutely love what I do and where I live – so combining the two seemed like a win!
As a Co- founder and Partner of Karim + Nicol Lawyers, I bring with me a wealth of criminal law experience and a proven track record of passionate representation for those who need it most.
After working in the Legal Department of a large international bank, I completed a Masters of Laws at Sydney University. I then spent some time with the United Nations before taking up a position as a Prosecutor with the Commonwealth DPP where I gained invaluable experience in complex federal offences.
Since switching to defence, I have spent almost every day appearing in court defending some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged defendants. I have appeared in a range of criminal cases – from possess prohibited drug to homicide. My career has enabled me to appear across the state – from Manly to Dubbo. I have also gained experience in coronial inquests, parole hearings, AVO applications and select civil matters.
My experience has revealed that coming into contact with the criminal justice system can have a lasting impact on one’s life. With that in mind, I look forward to fearlessly defending you!
