Peter Bevan - Criminal, Litigation & Family Lawyer

Peter has been a lawyer since 1987. He has practised in Queanbeyan, Canberra and New South Wales since 1989. Because he is a Law Society Accredited Specialist, he offers more knowledge, experience and expertise then other general practice lawyers in Queanbeyan.

Furthermore, he has held NSW Law Society Accredited Specialisation in both Criminal Law and Personal Injury Law for over twenty years. Due to changes in his workload, though, he now maintains his Specialisation solely in Criminal Law.

Peter’s vast experience in criminal law varies from simple traffic matters before Magistrates, to conducting jury trials for serious criminal offences. A member of the NSW and ACT Legal Aid panels, including the specialist NSW Legal Aid Serious Crime panel, he has also argued appeals to a panel of Judges in Courts of Appeal.

Peter is the only qualified Criminal Law specialist in Queanbeyan; he is one of only two in Canberra private practice.

Peter can help in NSW and Canberra court matters, including all criminal law and family law. He also can assist with traffic offences and general litigation.

Peter is also excellent in matters of personal injury, workers’ compensation, and care. He also has considerable expertise in wills and probates, contract disputes and family provisions claims.

Because of his pragmatic, outcomes-based approach to legal practice, Luke can passionately advocate for your interests in court. Many clients also appreciate his comprehensive and strategic legal advice and dedication to their cases.
