Colin is an experienced lawyer who regularly appears for clients in criminal and traffic law matters in all courts in Queensland and Northern New South Wales. Colin is service oriented, and client focussed and strives to secure the best possible outcomes for all his clients, whether they are charged with a simple traffic offence or are facing serious criminal allegations.
Colin has worked as both a Prosecutor (with the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for the ACT and the Commonwealth as well as the Queensland Police Service) and as a defence solicitor with a national criminal and traffic law firm before joining Russo Lawyers. Colin has successfully represented clients charged with all manner of offences from drink driving to serious assault, rape and internet-based child sex offending. Colin has particular expertise in the conduct of fraud cases, having both prosecuted and defended people charged with complex welfare, taxation and corporate frauds often acting for clients from the initial stages of a Police Officer, or government, investigation through to the conclusion of their criminal matter, greatly reducing the anxiety and stress of the inevitably protracted, and one-sided, experience.
Colin is one of the few lawyers in Queensland to hold a Master’s Degree specialising in the criminal law and he brings his wealth of academic and practical experience to bear for the good of his clients. Colin is a strong communicator and a fierce advocate who will work hard for you or your family member who might find themselves facing court.
