We regularly appear in the Adelaide Magistrates' Court, all metropolitan and country Magistrates' Courts, the District and Supreme Court of South Australia and the High Court of Australia.

At Caldicott Lawyers, we have a very successful criminal appeal practice that involves us appearing in the Supreme Court of South Australia and the High Court of Australia in Canberra. 

We have successfully won appeals to the High Court of Australia which have changed the criminal law in Australia.  These famous cases include Polyukhovich v The Commonwealth (1991) 172 CLR 501 (one of Australia’s largest war crimes case), Ridgeway v R [1995] HCA 66 (which dealt with the question of entrapment), Totani v South Australia (2010) 242 CLR 1 (freedom of association for bikies) and Kamleh v The Queen (2005) 213 ALR 97 (hearsay involving a co-accused).

We have appeared in over 50 murder trials in the Supreme Court of South Australia and regularly appear for people who have been served with a Notice to Appear before the Coroners Court as a witness. Craig Caldicott has appeared in many of these murder trials as the trial advocate and won.   

The benefits to you:

  • Legal costs are often saved because an experienced in-house lawyer can deal with the matter from start to finish without using a barrister.
  • Our lawyers have extensive experience appearing before Magistrates and Judges and have developed a professional working relationship with them. They know the best way to present your case before each Magistrate or Judge.
