Louis joined Slades & Parsons in 2016, having previously practised as a Solicitor Advocate at a firm specialising in criminal defence. He completed a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws from Deakin University in 2015, graduating with Honours and gained familiarity with the court system working with a number of highly regarded criminal lawyers whilst studying. Louis is a skilled advocate who approaches each case with the same thorough analysis and determination to get his clients the best result possible.
Louis appears regularly in the Magistrates’ Court and in Appeals and Plea Hearings in the County Court. He also maintains carriage of a number of complex cases which are heard and determined in the higher courts.
Louis understands that every case is different and that most people charged with criminal offences are required to appear in a stressful environment for the first time. He calls on his working knowledge of the criminal justice system to effectively resolve cases in an efficient matter and calls on his analytical skills and work ethic to ensure that contested cases are properly prepared.
Louis is a member of the LIV Criminal Law Section and works closely on a daily basis with court staff, other solicitors and barristers, Police members and Corrections officers.
