‘The Barrister’ – Colin Lovitt
Colin Lovitt, now retired QC, Criminal Defense Barrister of 45 years has had about 200 Murder
Trials. He was Chair of The Criminal Bar Association (Vic), also working on high profile cases in
WA, and also worked in Qld, infamously calling a Qld magistrate a cretin.
Colin is now busy working on a book due out “soon” that should make for a very interesting
He successfully defended Greg Domaszewicz on the now, 20 year old cold case murder of
Jayden Leskie. He successfully defended Mark “Chopper” Read on a murder charge and
successfully defended Graeme Slater, Gypsy Joker sergeant-at-arms, of murdering former
Perth CIB chief & his Bookie friend with a car bomb outside the retired detective’s house.
Colin successfully defended Ray Bennett (mastermind of The Great Bookie Robbery) and 2 others of the 1978 murder of Painter & Docker Les Kane. His book will no doubt provide more detail.

been a long time customer at “Percy’s”.
