Bridget Barnett

Bridget Barnett, a dedicated criminal defence lawyer, came to Nyman Gibson Miralis with an extensive practical understanding of the criminal justice system. Bridget worked for many years as Tipstaff to the Honourable Justice Peter Hidden AM in the Supreme Court of New South Wales. Her experience working with his Honour has given her a wide knowledge of the criminal law, practice and procedure and court room advocacy. This includes in depth knowledge about bail applications, serious indictable trials, sentencing, mental health proceedings, and appeals in the Court of Criminal Appeal.

Bridget works closely with Mr Phillip Gibson on complex cases with an international component, often involving allegations of corporate crime, as well as other complex criminal matters, where the clients receive the highest level of legal service. This experience in transnational criminal law reflects the growing importance of it in the firm’s practice of law and the need for client to consult with experienced transnational criminal defence lawyers.

Since joining Nyman Gibson Miralis, Bridget has worked on a number of serious indictable trials. Those trials have included allegations of sexual assault and money laundering.

Bridget appears in the Local Court, the District Court and the Supreme Court instructing Criminal Defence counsel.


[Customer Review]

Dear Sirs,

I wish to thank you for the services of your firm with respect to a matter heard yesterday at Sutherland Court.

I retained Nyman Gibson Miralis to represent me on a recent DUI charge. I cannot speak highly enough of the expertise and service provided to me by Bridget Barnett.

While the outcome was a conviction, I was prepared for this. Bridget put all her efforts into preparing a submission that may convince the magistrate that discretion would be appropriate, however we knew our chances were slim. Her submission was well prepared and the magistrate did consider her argument. The outcome could have been far worse.

Please commend Bridget for her manner & attitude to ensuring the process was a smooth one. It is unnerving appearing in court, particularly when you have a lot to lose as I did. It would have been a lot more so had Bridget not been the type of person she is. I was grateful to have her there.

Both she and Mina took the time to stay with me for half an hour following the hearing to await the bond paperwork. It is this kind of service that would lead me to recommend your firm to anyone.

I wish you and your team all the best.

Warm Regards,

JC, Rydalmere
