Howden Saggers Lawyers has provided expert legal advice and representation since 2002. In 2013, we were voted by our peers to be the No 1 Criminal Law Firm in Australia.
We provide a premium service in all types of criminal law matters. We have two accredited criminal law specialists in our team, who between them have 47 years of experience in criminal law.
All solicitors at Howden Saggers appear in court on a daily basis. We conduct matters in the Magistrates Court, such as traffic, work licences, summary trials and sentence hearings. We also have a wealth of experience in more sophisticated matters in the District and Supreme Courts.
In 2012, we were involved in Queensland’s longest running murder trial and more recently, we have acted for a number of company directors being investigated by ASIC. We also recently conducted a successful appeal in the High Court of Australia, which led to a change of sentencing practice in Queensland.
Howden Saggers Partner, Peter Saggers, is currently the Vice President of the Law and Justice Institute of QLD. In this role, Peter is involved in advocating changes in criminal law legislation.
Commitment to Education
Howden Saggers are strong supporters of legal education, and we proudly sponsor the Howden Saggers Award for Criminal Procedure, as part of the prestigious University of Queensland awards.
