Craig Astill

Admitted to practise in 2002, Craig has spent his career almost exclusively in criminal law as a trial advocate, having joined the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in 2003 where he rose to the position of Senior State Prosecutor. Prior to commencing his career as a prosecutor, he worked for a large insurance litigation firm specialising in workers’ compensation and employer’s indemnity and public liability insurance. In 2021 he commenced his practice at the Bar.

Since 2005 he has been appearing as trial counsel, having appeared in matters of all levels of complexity in both the District and Supreme Courts, including murder, serious sexual offending, major fraud and white collar crime as well as in the appellate jurisdiction. He has appeared frequently in both the metropolitan and regional circuit courts and has appeared as counsel in relation to matters involving remote witnesses or cultural sensitivity.

Having had the advantage of working as a prosecutor for an extended period of time he now brings that wealth of experience in criminal law to all matters that he is appearing on.
