Before joining the team at Armstrong Legal, Cara worked as a DNA expert preparing and giving DNA evidence in criminal trials. In this role she liaised with police, DPP and defence practitioner regarding a variety of matters including DNA transfer, deposition and recovery.

Cara has reviewed and interpreted thousands of DNA profiles that were reported as intelligence to the NSW police, and when requested, submitted reports and gave evidence in criminal trials and hearings in the District and Local Courts of NSW.

She possesses a unique insight into the methods of collection and testing of forensic evidence, which she can use on behalf of those accused of crimes. This detailed analysis has transferred and dovetailed into her legal analysis. She brings to bear all the skills of a scientist in pulling apart the proofs and element of offences that police need to prove to secure convictions.

Cara’s training in science gives her a very different perspective to bring high level and specific focus to all criminal matters she deals with. She is a competent and methodical preparer, leaving nothing to chance in the pursuit of the best results for her clients.


The service I was provided went well above and beyond what I had expected, and after every interaction I had a great deal of stress lifted from my shoulders.

I would like to thank Cara Maynard and the company again for saving me yesterday. I am so happy that I had her in my most tragic event in my life. Her quick responses, in depth knowledge and ability to practice the law very well saved my career and my life. Cara definitely has the skills she needs in her career. My partner and I think that she was excellent in that room yesterday and we were very lucky to be represented by Cara. I can only recommend her and the company to others with their expertise.

I am absolutely delighted with the performance of Armstrong Legal and with my solicitor Cara Maynard in relation to my case. The outcome was better than I could have possibly hoped for. I am extremely impressed with the calm professionalism demonstrated by Ms Maynard throughout the process, and particularly in the final court appearance. While I hope never again to require Armstrong Legal’s services in relation to a criminal matter, I could not possibly recommend them highly enough to anybody facing a similarly difficult experience.

Cara secured the best possible outcome for me, and had a warm and friendly demeanour when handling my case. I would thoroughly recommend her!

Thank you so much for everything and especially with such a great outcome, thank you!!

Cara you are an absolute legend, thank you so much for all of your help throughout this matter. You are an absolute superstar and I cannot thank you enough. This was an absolute relief for me and would happily suggest you for anyone looking to head to court. Your thoroughness throughout the case is unmatched, and your professional nature when treating this matter is second to none. Extremely happy about how this all panned out and would not have been able to do it without you!
