Bruce Coode was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of New South Wales in February of 1977. He promptly began practicing as a solicitor in Penrith and has been living and working here ever since.
Bruce has extensive experience in criminal matters, having commenced his career appearing for clients on serious criminal offences on his first two days as a solicitor. He has appeared in every Court up to the High Court of Australia, and in a wide variety of criminal matters ranging from driving license matters through to murder and sexual assault matters. In his nearly 40 years of practise Bruce has assisted a number of men and women who are charged with very serious crimes, and understands both the laws in the area and the stress that his criminal law clients are going through.
Bruce also has extensive experience in property matters, having acted during his career for many individuals purchasing or selling a house, applying to Council for various approvals, assisting clients who are the subject of a compulsory acquisition, or acting for lessors or lessees in relation to entering into leases or enforcing their rights. In addition to working for individual clients in private practice as a solicitor for all that time, he was a legal advisor to three local councils for many years, and has lectured in real estate law at university. He understands more than just your basic conveyance, and is well equipped to assist you with all aspects of your property transactions.
