ZOE NAVARRO

Director and Principal Lawyer

Zoe was admitted as a Solicitor in the Townsville Supreme Court in May 2011 after completing her university studies at James Cook University, Townsville.

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. Zoe still regularly attends Palm Island and represents clients in that circuit court for a variety of matters.
