Peter Dawson


Peter Dawson was first admitted as a lawyer in 1968, and in 1972 he opened his own firm.

Very few practitioners can match Peter’s experience and success in Criminal and Family law matters. He has conducted trials in the Local, District and Supreme Courts ranging from traffic offences to murder, and his skill in cross-examination has earned him an outstanding reputation with Judges, Magistrates, Prosecutors and his fellow legal practitioners.

He has also appeared at all levels of the Family Court including a large number of  property and custody cases now recorded as caselaw, and has vast experience in Wills and Estates, especially in Family Provision claims.

Peter is also a Notary Public.
