A Formidable


Hearn Legal is a boutique law firm offering high quality representation in criminal and related matters before the Local, District and Supreme Courts of New South Wales. 

Principal solicitor Christian Hearn has extensive experience both as a defence lawyer and as a prosecutor working with the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). With the DPP he worked in the special crime unit prosecuting police officers, politicians and other highly publicised criminal cases. His defence work has taken him across the state dealing with everything from traffic offences to murder. With his combined experience in defence and prosecution, Christian is able to anticipate and respond strategically to the prosecution case against you. 

Based in the Sydney CBD, we attend all courts within the Sydney metropolitan area. If you are further afield, we will travel to defend you.
