Finding the way: advising those who have lost theirs
Graham Thomas QC has defended serial killers, mobsters and battered women, in some of Australia’s most famous cases. He knows about keeping a low profile when you’re in the spotlight.
Graham Thomas QC has had every type of criminal case there is. From the tawdry and sensational, to the heartbreaking and downright awful, the barrister has seen them all. But you won’t find him sharing the details with his mates on the golf course.
“Friends and reporters would sometimes ask if I had an interesting case, and I’d usually just say no, not really. It’s not my job to promote interest in a trial, especially if my client did not wish publicity. Some people have lots of entertaining stories to tell at a dinner party, but not me.
“In almost every case there is a human story which far outweighs its sensational aspects.”
