Rebecca Fogerty – Criminal Lawyer

Potts Lawyers > Our Criminal & Litigation Lawyers > Rebecca Fogerty – Criminal Lawyer

Rebecca is senior lawyer based in our Brisbane office and a Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialist in Criminal Law.

She practices exclusively in criminal and quasi-criminal defence and has been involved in numerous high profile and complex matters including drug trafficking, white collar crime and sexual offences.  In 2017, her expertise and experienced were recognised by her being included in the annual Doyles’ Guide to the Legal Profession.

Following completion of degrees in Law and Arts (Psychology) at the University of Queensland in 2007, Rebecca worked as a Judge’s Associate before joining the firm.

This gave her a special insight into the day to day workings of the criminal justice system and influenced her decision to practise exclusively as a criminal lawyer.

Rebecca brings to her practice an understanding of the special stresses which clients experience in their interactions with the police and the courts and feels it is important to provide support and information to assist their decision-making.

I enjoy helping my clients navigate a way through their legal problems, not just in aiding their understanding of the court processes and the options available to them but in advocating effectively in the courtroom to ensure my clients achieve the best possible outcome.

Rebecca is based in our Brisbane office and appears in all courts in the Brisbane area. She has a wide range of experience in criminal law proceedings, including:

She has a reputation for careful and strategic analysis, effective negotiation and strong courtroom advocacy.

Rebecca is currently one of only five female Accredited Criminal Law Specialists in Queensland.  Significantly, she achieved this qualification during her first five years of criminal practice.  She is the current Vice Chair of the Queensland Law Society’s Criminal Law Committee and was previously a member of the organisation’s Human Rights Working Group.  Together with Bill Potts, she has written articles for publication in a variety of formats, including the Courier Mail and Lawyers’ Weekly, and is regularly called upon as a speaker on topics of interest to the profession.

Rebecca is a former  Chair of the Queensland Chapter of the College of Law Alumni Association, and has also volunteered her criminal law expertise at the Caxton Community Legal Centre in South Brisbane.  Rebecca believes that it is important to give back to the community and the profession and provides guidance and mentoring to law students through the Queensland University of Technology’s Career Mentor Scheme.
