I got into some trouble this January. A girl falsely claimed that I touched her multiple times without her consent when she was in my home. The police investigated me later. I was in panic. I googled and contacted multiple criminal lawyers in Melbourne to help me. At last I chose Elizabeth and I am glad that I made the right choice. She was professional, deligent and so nice to people. She really has empathy which was so helpful to me when I was on the edge of abyss. After 5 months, the police decided not to charge me probably because they don't have enough evidence. Or because my lawyer is this wonderful barrister. Thx!

Throughout the entire process, Elizabeth demonstrated a deep understanding of the law and an unwavering commitment to achieving an outcome that was absolutely amazing. Her attention to detail, empathy, and thorough research were evident in every aspect of the case. It was truly remarkable to witness her analytical prowess and ability to unravel even the most intricate legal issues. Elizabeth is undoubtedly among the best in her field and stood by us as a guardian angel from start to finish. We would highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone seeking top tier legal representation.

I am in my later years and had to appear in country court and I contacted Elizabeth McKinnon, she said, "leave it with me" and as a result I didn't have to appear, and only received a mandatory sentence, a small fine and NO conviction recorded. THANK YOU for your brilliant work in the courthouse and your Bubbling personality outside the courtroom. Bobby C.

Elizabeth is a remarkable Barrister. She is so professional in her job, and she makes you feel that you're her only client. It's that personal communication and advice that makes you feel you're in good hands. The case close to me in question had very serious criminal charges (8 in total) Elizabeth went beyond expectations. Her experience is priceless. Elizabeth achieved the best possible results, with just a couple of fines and no convictions on all charges. Looking for a Barrister, don't look any further, Elizabeth McKinnon is the one.

Elizabeth Mckinnon is a fantastic lawyer and I highly recommend her. The service she provided was excellent due to the high level of expertise she possesses, the level of support she gave and her outstanding commitment throughout the case. She achieved an amazing result and I am deeply grateful for her counsel and guidance throughout the matter.

Genevieve Plozza Avatar Genevieve Plozza

After being poorly represented by another firm, I was facing some serious legal trouble. I was at the point of giving up and was ready to take whatever they were going to throw at me. Thankfully after only one phone call to Elizabeth, I was put at ease because I knew I had someone on my side who was up for the job. Not once did Elizabeth give me false hope, leave me hanging, mislead me regarding costs or fail to represent me or treat me with anything aside from respect and decency. Elizabeth gave me fair and reasonable expectations of outcome yet over-delivered every time. If you are the victim of legal trouble through no fault of your own, I cannot recomment asking Elizabeth McKinnon to be in your corner fighting for you. Elizabeth is a legal machine and doesn't have an off button when there is work to be done. You simply won't find better legal representation! Thanks again Elizabeth, I don't have the words to express how grateful I am for your help.

What a dead set gun of a Baristar, has your back to the hilt, none stop take no prisoners approach at the crown no matter how long the court case dragged on for, in my case 4 1/2 years with a not guilty verdict of all charges at the end. She always has an ace up her sleeve and goes bang out of no where, when they lease suspect it. She’s the one people…….. love yah Lizzy! Thanks for always going in to bat for me , you always have my back in those times of need. Thank you 🙏

Before covid, I was faced with a series of false allegations. The stress surrounding these allegations had a devastating effect on my health, well being, and my family. The manner and professionalism shown by Elizabeth was simply, outstanding. She prepared my case with the facts, prepared the evidence precisely, and reassured me along the way with every step. Over two years went by, due to pandemic court delays, and I was finally allowed to present the facts on the table. Elizabeth spoke directly, and only needed to present a fraction of the evidence. It took only 2 minutes for my case to be finally withdrawn, and thrown out without hesitation by the court. I can not thank Elizabeth Mckinnon enough for her high-class expertise, honesty, integrity, and reassuring manner throughout the entire pandemic and court process. I am forever grateful.

I have only the highest praise and recommendation for Elizabeth. She took on my case five years ago and has been so efficient, thorough and reassuring all the way through a very stressful and harrowing experience. Nothing was too high a hurdle for Elizabeth and her team, Simone and Lisa. Not only was Elizabeth very professional but she became almost a member of my family, supporting us and encouraging a positive outlook as we faced the court. I strongly recommend Elizabeth and her team to anyone needing a no nonsense, supportive and professional Criminal Lawyer

The moment I was served I knew this historical allegation was serious and had the potential to affect not only my life but my whole family as well.In a blind panic I googled ‘sexual assault crime lawyer’ and there on the screen before me was Elizabeth McKinnon.In the late afternoon of a public holiday I didn’t expect anyone to pick up the phone but, Elizabeth did.She spent an hour talking through my situation and then requested the brief of evidence.From that moment until today (4years total) Elizabeth has been my advocate and staunchest supporter.Elizabeth is a straight shooter who never inflated my expectations however, I always felt she believed in my innocence and would fight for me till the very end.I cannot express my gratitude for her knowledge, expertise, support and tenaciousness.If you want the best, or if you need the best, then Elizabeth McKinnon IS THE BEST.

I don’t have enough words to thank Mrs. McKinnon for her amazing work and support she gave me during the intervention order raised by my former employer and case court hearing. Her professionalism, knowledge, passion and dedication for work as well as help she provided me as her client went above and beyond her official duty as lawyer. She is also an amazing human being by showing compassion, kindness and care in this hardest moment we need the most. I could not find a better lawyer to represent me. She is worth each cent she charges for her work and much more. I wish her the best in life and again send many thanks for defending me in my case and achieving a positive outcome. Thank you Elizabeth.

Stana Gligorevic Avatar Stana Gligorevic

All I can say is Thank God I came across Elizabeth McKinnon!! I found myself in a situation with multiple IVO breaches in which I thought were allowable, like texting my partner Merry Christmas or asking about the kids, but they were not. It has and is a very difficult time in my life and Elizabeth understood this. I couldn't believe I was in this situation in which I was facing a criminal conviction. As soon as I rang Elizabeth I felt a weight off my shoulders. She wanted to meet me straight away and explain my situation. She treated me fairly and without judgement which was amazing. The day at court was touch and go, but I knew she would do a fantastic job as she was well prepared, she knew my case and most importantly she was on my side, which to be honest meant more to me than anything above all else!! I was prepared for the worst, but the outcome was amazing, a non conviction with a minor requirement to complete a course I was already voluntarily enrolled it. I have used multiple barristers and solicitors for family court and IVO matters and at times you think any solicitor etc will do. But let me tell you, having the wrong solicitor or barrister will cost you thousands. I have had that experience. Elizabeth is at the top of her field and I can't recommend her highly enough. Thank You Elizabeth....

Elizabeth McKinnon is a rare blend of high professionalism, knowledge, skill, experience, compassion and integrity. The successful outcome of my case meant the preservation of my two greatest assets - my health and my reputation. I was in a high state of trauma at the time - so having Elizabeth to represent me - made me feel very safe and secure, no matter what the outcome could be. Despite my case being relatively small compared to her main case work - Elizabeth saw mine as no less important. I owe my life and the reputation I so highly value - to her. I will never forget it. I am eternally grateful to you Elizabeth - you are a tremendous soul. And the very best your speciality has to offer. THANKYOU from the bottom of my heart.

I was falsely accused of assault and looking for the right legal representation, which is important to me not only seeking justice but also shedding light on the journey towards truth for others who may be navigating similar challenges. Finally, my case was withdrawn and Her determination is a beacon of hope amidst the stormy seas of uncertainty. Trust Elizabeth and give her room to work, you will definitely find the Justice!

First of all, I would like to thank Elizabeth for accommodating our case. She guided us all through out the process. She is always reachable or otherwise, she will call you back as soon as she can. That's one of the things I love about her. I was really nervous seeking a lawyer because I don't have any experience about this but she is so warm and very direct to the point. You can notice to her that she only wants what's best for her client and she is an expert on the field. Her skill and dedication to the case were the things that reassured us that our case will get the best resolution at fastest way possible.

As well as being an amazing Barrister with consumate knowledge and skill in the law, Elizabeth is a lovely human with a deep interest in the person she is representing. She rang me one Sunday night about 9 pm to clarify an aspect of my case which impressed me enormously. I could not help saying, ”Elizabeth, it's Sunday night, why are you working, do you not have any friends?“ She laughed which demonstrated on top of all the other good characteristics she also has a sense of humour. So yes, I would definitely use her again should the circumstances arise. She was also not afraid to call me out when I was being stubborn or stupid. Thank you Elizabeth for your skill, judgement and care. Ian Reeders

I must extend my deepest gratitude and a massive shoutout to Elizabeth McKinnon, a barrister whose expertise and demeanor are unparalleled in criminal law. Elizabeth is not just the best criminal barrister I've encountered; her unique blend of empathy and toughness sets her apart. She was instrumental in navigating my brother through an incredibly challenging situation. His ex-partner, who had subjected him to over two decades of physical and mental abuse, wrongfully accused him of domestic violence, leading to his criminal charge for assault. This accusation threatened to devastate his personal and professional life.The situation was dire, especially given that the police had charged him without a thorough investigation, blatantly overlooking two instances in October 2022 when he reported being assaulted.Elizabeth McKinnon was nothing short of a game-changer in this scenario. From our first interaction, her honesty and directness were evident. She radiated a sincere belief in my brother's character, who is, without exaggeration, the gentlest soul one could encounter. Elizabeth's approach was a masterful balance of compassion and rigor. She demonstrated deep care for our situation while adopting a formidable stance in defense of my brother. Her diligent efforts in scrutinizing the case, challenging the charges with unwavering determination, led to a remarkable outcome: the charges were dropped before the case could escalate to a full court trial.What struck me most profoundly was Elizabeth's ability to harmonize her nurturing disposition with a formidable, no-nonsense approach in legal matters. Witnessing her relentless advocacy for my brother, in the face of overwhelming odds, was truly inspiring. Her intervention was not just professional legal assistance; it was a lifeline in a time of despair.For anyone facing similar legal battles, I wholeheartedly recommend Elizabeth McKinnon. She is more than just an exceptional barrister; she is a beacon of hope and a true lifesaver in the legal community.Thank you, Elizabeth, for being such an extraordinary human being.

From the moment I walked into Elizabeth's office on a Saturday afternoon, I knew I was in exceptional hands. I was pleased with her welcoming hospitality, knowledge and professionalism. I was in a meeting with a barrister who was prepared to listen to my side of the story, to listen to the truth and look me in the eyes and say to me, 'I believe you', 'we are going to win this'. It was at that moment that my faith in the justice system and in barristers was restored. Elizabeth demonstrated integrity throughout my whole case and her passion for the truth was outstanding. She put my personal interests first, above anything else. The team of people who work with her are a force to be reckoned with. The personal care and attention of the whole team as well as their professionalism, is superb! If you want a barrister who is honest, kind, compassionate, genuine, knowledgeable, professional, experienced, responsive, and values integrity, Elizabeth McKinnon is the one for you. Highly recommend her. Thanks for everything you did for me Elizabeth. Thanks for believing in me.

I am writing under a pen name so my tangles with the law are not out in the public. Elizabeth Mckinnon got me from start to finish without ever being punished by the law or re-offending, since she was clear about what would happen if I did re-offend. My legal troubles were taken to be part of my illness and after a number of simple court cases where I didn't have to do anything, I was let off the hook without any punishment. The greatest thing she did was answer many phone calls from me when I was afraid I would break the law, which she talked me out of doing every time. she went beyond what an ordinary lawyer does and it is thanks to her I am a free citizen who can live like everyone else.

Being charged by the police with sexual assault is the most horrible, nightmarish terror one can ever experience. Being charged when one is innocent, the terror is multiplied a hundredfold.Elizabeth is empathic and genuine, she is “the real deal”. She is there when the world seems to be crumbling around you, she is there when torment and terror take over your life. Elizabeth is there when your life is at stake.Elizabeth is a master strategist and defended what, in the legal circles, was considered an “un-winnable case”. A ruthless complainant with the ability to tell lies under oath, with the expectation of a cash bonanza, crafted a case of sexual assault that convinced gullible informants.Elizabeth, a master strategist, was able to unmask the complainant with a masterly set of questions. Elizabeth’s sharp, minute-by-minute, quick thinking exposed the complainant’s narrative as riddled with contradictions, inconsistencies, and lies.The complainant was intelligent but no match for Elizabeth. Elizabeth is the best defence barrister, a thoroughly professional criminal legal expert. There is none better.At the end of the trial, Elizabeth gave a stunning, brilliant, respectful summing of the case, She knew my life depended on winning this un-winnable case. Elizabeth gave the most impassioned speech which was clear, logical and clear thinking characterised her summing up.Thank you, Elizabeth for conducting the case so that justice prevailed despite all predictions to the contrary.Finally, after two weeks on the dock, and having to suffer the most humiliating lies, it took less than sixty minutes for a jury of 12 strangers to arrive at their verdict of “NOT GUILTY”.Julian The Saint

My family and i will be forever grateful to Elizabeth for what she has done for me and she has done it all out of the kindness of her heart. She is the only person I will ever trust to represent me and I feel that she cared for me as an individual.
