In response to local demand and in line with their commitment to the Hunter region, law firm Conditsis Lawyers has opened an office in Hunter Street next door to the the Criminal Courthouse and nearby to the Family Court.
Founding Director, Manny Conditsis said that he and his business partner are thrilled to bring their legal services to Newcastle.
“My fellow director, Michal Mantaj and I are delighted and enthusiastic about bringing our team of highly skilled professionals and specialised legal services to the people of Newcastle,” Manny said.
“I have had a fondness of the area and for the no-nonsense Novacastrians dating back to when I appeared in my first murder trial, which resulted in the acquittal of Dean Waters at the Newcastle Supreme Court 24 years ago in 1997.”
Renowned for their high success rate in criminal jury trials and family law-related trials in the Federal Circuit Family Court of Australia, Conditsis Lawyers has long had a reputation for fighting for the underdog and winning cases even when the odds have been stacked against them.
Conditsis Lawyers are highly regarded within the profession and by the Courts for their skills, professionalism, and commitment to leaving no stone unturned in pursuit of the best possible outcome.
“Advocacy is about fighting hard for your client and winning the cases in which the odds are stacked against you. We believe that’s what distinguishes us,” he said.
The firm was recently named the 2021 NSW Regional Firm of the Year in the APAC Legal Awards and one of their Criminal Lawyers, Alexandra Bailey, was named the 2021 Top Young Criminal Lawyer Under 30 in Australia against hundreds of applicants Australia-wide.
Manny is currently a finalist in the APAC Regional Partner of the Year awards in the Criminal Law category, with the winner to be announced in December.
Conditsis Lawyers was established in Gosford in the early 1980s. The firm is now one of the leading law firms in Sydney and regional NSW with offices in Gosford, Sydney, Wollongong, and now Newcastle.
Recently recognised in the media as one of NSWs most influential Lawyers, Manny is the only Solicitor Advocate in the state to appear in murder trials in the Supreme Court.
An Accredited Specialist in Criminal Law, Manny has appeared in landmark and high-profile cases and is regularly sought by the media for comment on other high-profile cases and legal matters.
“I love the cut and thrust of the courtroom atmosphere and the ability to think on your feet is not so much learned but rather is instinctive and intuitive” Manny said.
Manny and Co-Director, Michal Mantaj, have also just been recognised as Leading Criminal Lawyers in NSW in the 2021 Doyle’s Guide.
