John Badgery


Having completed his legal studies in Melbourne John was admitted to practice in 2022 by the Queensland Supreme Court. Before joining Paul Vale Criminal Law in early 2024 John worked for the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service where he practiced energetically in the Magistrates’ Court at Cairns and across the Cape.

John’s considerable experience with in-court advocacy in a high caseload environment sees matters dealt with competently and efficiently, delivering great results for clients. He appears in plea hearings, summary trials, bail applications, and all other Magistrates’ Court hearings. He is a diligent instructor in County and Supreme Court matters.
