Paul Bevilacqua is one of Perth’s  leading criminal advocates.  He commenced the practice of law In Western Australia in 1989 and has remained practicing exclusively in this State.  

Listed in the 2015 Doyle’s List of leading Perth Criminal Law Barristers as identified by his peers for his expertise and abilities in the area, Paul has defended politicians, business men and women and high-profile individuals.

While Paul defends against all allegations the State can bring from the less serious to the gravest.  He specialises in financial criminal matters.

He appears in all courts from the Magistrates Court to the High Court in trials and on appeals.

Paul is especially known for his direct and efficient approach to legal issues and advocacy and his advice is timely and precise.  Paul won’t tell you what you want to hear, he will just tell you how it is and expects anyone he represents to do the same.  In representing you, Paul will do whatever it takes to provide assistance, protection and present your case to the fullest extent permitted by the law.

Paul created Equus Chambers with three colleagues in 2016 with a view to providing a team approach to individuals needing advice and representation in criminal matters.  The barristers at Equus Chambers have each other’s complete backing and that flows onto the clients who engage barristers at Equus Chambers.  When you have Paul representing you, he brings with him not just his own experience, abilities and loyalty but the experience, abilities and loyalty of his colleagues at Equus Chambers.
