About Joseph

Joseph Correy is the managing partner of Australian Criminal Law Group, one of the best criminal law firms in Sydney, and is its most experienced criminal lawyer.

Joseph is recognised as one of the best criminal lawyers in Sydney. He represents clients charged with serious crimes including murder, manslaughter, drug importations, grievous bodily harm and serious sex offences. He has an unparalleled record of acquittals for innocent clients.

As managing partner of Australian Criminal Law Group, he is responsible for putting together the strongest team in criminal law, which includes Law Society President’s Medal winner Deng Adult, Sydney’s best drug lawyer Joseph, and star 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.

Joseph, as a criminal lawyer, understands the trauma associated with accusations that attack a person’s character, including false allegations that can tear families apart. His belief in the innocence of clients has seen him play a pivotal role in the rebuilding of their lives and reputations.

Joseph has a deep-rooted sense of justice tracing back to his upbringing. Raised in Redfern, during the eighties and early nineties, he detests corrupt cops and police brutality. He entered criminal law after the 2004 death of TJ Hickey to hold the police force accountable and has done so since that day. As well as his extensive private practice Joseph assists many Indigenous clients fighting for justice in the criminal courts.

Joseph has a deep understanding and experience of the law.

What separates him from other criminal lawyers is that he dismantles witnesses and wins cases that are considered unwinnable. He prides himself on being able to find and argue obscure laws and technicalities that other lawyers miss, to the detriment of their clients.

Joseph appears regularly in the Local Court, District Court, Supreme Court, and Court of Criminal Appeal. Almost every day, he is involved with the acquittal of his clients or imposition of a lenient sentence.For Joseph’s help, call Australian Criminal Law Group on 02 8815 8167 and book in a free first conference.
