Dean Waters Trial

In 1997, the public’s national attention focused on the firm as a result of a successful verdict given in the highly publicized “Dean Waters Case”. The accused, Dean Waters, was one of three brothers who were all famous boxers in their own right and who were trained by their father, Ces Waters. Together they formed a “family dynasty in boxing”.

Dean Waters was originally charged with murder in 1988 but not committed for trial. He later came forward entirely of his own volition in 1996 to confess his guilt. Notwithstanding his confession, a psychiatric defense was run at trial in the Supreme Court and he was acquitted and walked out a free man!

This case attracted much media interest, including segments on 60 Minutes and A Current Affair.
