Criminal Lawyer Townsville

Navarro Lawyers

Navarro Lawyers was established in 2018 by our director, Zoe Navarro.  We only practice in our areas of expertise – criminal law, traffic law and domestic violence law.  We have never sought to expand into other areas of law and instead focus on providing expert advice and representation to our clients in this important area of law.

We are passionate about what we do. We will always hold ourselves to a very high standard in terms of our representation or our clients and our advocacy for them.  We will also act in your best interests and strongly advocate on your behalf.  We are respected by our peers, Judicial Officers and other court stakeholders and we will always do our best to simplify the court process for you and strive for the best possible outcome for each client.

We pride ourselves on our service to our clients by removing the fear of hidden legal costs, and confusion around the legal processes that apply to your matter.  We will ensure you have a full understanding of the matter and any potential consequences that may apply to you so that you can make fully informed decisions and effectively instruct your lawyer.

Our office is located close to the court house and we are available 24/7 for any urgent issues that might arise because we understand issues may arise outside of normal business hours and it is very important you have access to competent legal advice from a very early stage in your matter.

Throughout her studies, she worked for a local reputable criminal law firm as a law clerk and was assisted in the preparation of a number of complex criminal matters during that time.

Since her admission, Zoe has worked exclusively in criminal defence.  She spent 2 years in private firms in Brisbane before returning to Townsville and working for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service and other private firms in Townsville.  That work has included work in jurisdictions around Townsville, including Mount Isa, Ayr and Palm Island.
