About Deng

Child soldier. Criminal lawyer. NSW Australian of the year. Deng Adut is one of Australia’s best-known criminal lawyers for both his work in the courtroom, and as a leader within the community.

In 2017, only 3 years after opening Australian Criminal Law Group, Deng won the NSW Australian of the Year award At the invitation of then NSW Premier Mike Baird, he gave the 2016 Australia Day Address.

Deng is one of only three criminal lawyers to win the prestigious Law Society President’s Medal. This medal recognises his significant personal and professional contributions to the betterment of law and justice in the community. His greatest contribution of all is Australian Criminal Law Group, with its team of lawyers handpicked for their excellence in criminal law and unwavering dedication to justice.

Among the criminal lawyers fighting side by side with Deng at Australian Criminal Law Group is managing partner Joseph Correy, who is recognised as one of the best criminal lawyers in Sydney, as well as Sydney’s best drug lawyer Joseph Harb, and criminal lawyer Steven Mercael. Other criminal lawyers at Australian Criminal Law Group include Michael Djurichkovic and Omar Dannawi. There is not a stronger roster of criminal lawyers at any law firm in Sydney.

Since founding Australian Criminal Law Group, Deng has received the Pride of Australia Medal from News Corporation. His life story also featured in an award winning advertisement for Western Sydney University. In 2016, Deng published a critically acclaimed memoir, Songs of a War Boy, about his journey from child soldier to becoming one of Australia’s best criminal lawyers.
