Peter Kemp is a solicitor living and practising in the New England area of NSW, predominately in criminal matters but also in care and protection.
Peter came to law late in life after a career in almost every aspect of the auto electrical industry for 30 years, which took him to Singapore, Japan, China and Indonesia for eight years.
During this time away Peter owned a small factory in Batam Island near Singapore, however the South East Asian financial meltdown in 1997/98 saw him back in Australia looking to do something different.
Peter’s interests, apart from criminal law, include renewable energy, international relations/foreign policy and aviation — he was once the proud owner of a Cessna 150.
Peter is passionate about human rights and Indigenous affairs in Australia and deeply concerned from personal experience about the over represented numbers in custody as well as deaths in custody.
