Kate Goodman-Creed

Barrister & Solicitor 

Kate was admitted to the Bar in May 2019. She is a criminal litigator who provides fierce representation for clients both in the Courtroom and during charge negotiations with stakeholders. She has a natural ability to connect with clients and makes an effort to ensure our clients know we are fighting in their corner.

Prior to joining KA early in 2023, she worked for the Public Defence Service. Over the years she has represented clients facing charges ranging from driving offences to assaults and firearm offences. Having represented clients throughout various stages of Court proceedings, she can provide you with clear, concise, and considered advice to help you navigate the justice system.

She is available to do limited licences at $1,000 + GST. 

Kate also has a special interest in pre-trial applications relating to the Search and Surveillance Act. She is working towards learning more about jury trials and will be involved in most of the trials that KA has in the future.

By working at KA, Kate can throw her hat in the civil litigation ring and is now a Legal Aid Supervised Provider for civil matters and so can assist Shane in various matters he is dealing with.

Kate is both a Legal Aid provider for criminal matters and is available to take instructions privately.
