Todd Street became a lawyer in 2006. Initially, he worked for a Newcastle-based firm in general practice, before joining a long-established and prestigious law firm operating in the Newcastle area in early 2011. He spent two years working with and learning from some of Newcastle’s best and most experienced lawyers. He has a broad range of experience in family law, wills, powers of attorney and enduring guardianships, conveyancing, probate and criminal law.

In 2015, the Law Society of New South Wales awarded Todd Specialist Accreditation in the area of family law. Specialist Accreditation is awarded only to family lawyers who are sufficiently experienced and who demonstrate specialised competence by passing a rigorous course of assessment. They are also required to undertake continuing professional education over and above that required to be undertaken by lawyers without specialist accreditation.

Away from the law
