Tom Cuthbertson manages Culshaw Miller Criminal Lawyers under the practice director, Jeremy Culshaw.

Tom has experience defending clients charged with many of the most serious criminal offences in Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne including rape, attempted murder, serious drug trafficking and assaults. With experience presenting and preparing complex and sophisticated defences including mental impairment and other technical defences to serious offences, Tom and his team take a strong approach from the very outset, with a philosophy that a client’s rights are sacrosanct and that no stone should be left unturned in testing the Crown case and preparing a strong defence. Tom is also experienced in guilty pleas that ensure that an accused person is presented to the Court in the best possible way- that a sentencing judge or magistrate is able to see the reality of the person before them, rather than “another criminal” which can afford them leniency and a fair go in the form of a good behaviour bond or suspended sentence depending on the circumstances.
