Balanced advice, exceptional clarity.

Colin Revelman is quite different from most lawyers.

He’ll cut to the chase and provide legal advice with exceptional clarity, and because he’s worked in the real world, he brings a balanced perspective you’ll struggle to find elsewhere.

The Department is the largest employer in NSW and one of the largest in Australia. exceeding 140,000 employees.  This role was subsequent to a previous assignment as a legal counsel for the NSW Police Force, in the Employment Law Unit, Office of The General Counsel.

Like many of us born into a profession, he wandered away for a while before returning with senior management experience in the commercial real estate and hospitality industries.

Working in a boutique law firm in Sydney, Colin specialised in Employment Law & Industrial Relations, Commercial Litigation, Criminal Law and Migration Law.

Eventually he set up Revelman Legal, and now he brings all that experience to you.

Colin regularly appears in all jurisdictions including the NSW Local, District and Supreme Courts, the Chief Industrial Magistrates Court, the Federal Courts and specialist tribunals including the Fair Work Commission (FWC) and the NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT).

And whatever it is you’re facing, if he can’t help you directly, he’ll help you find someone who can.
