In his time there, Dogu focused on obtaining the best result for his clients, whether through mediation or court. Dogu also found a passion for being an advocate for effective law reform that helped streamline the ACT’s tenancy laws.
Whether with clients, on radio or through government submissions, Dogu enjoys explaining the law in simplified terms to make it easier for those without the requisite knowledge to understand the law. He is proud of his ability to build strong connections with his clients and help them through difficult situations. Dogu’s pragmatic approach helps employees understand their rights and responsibilities and how to navigate them. For employers, this translates into building a bridge between abstract employment law concepts and real world solutions.

Dogu graduated from the Australian Nation University with a Bachelor of Laws with Honours and has worked across multiple practices at Legal Aid ACT. This experience and interaction with a wide range of clients and legal issues has built a strong advocacy foundation through which he assists his clients in obtaining the best outcomes.
