Marking significant milestones in the careers of those listed, the New South Wales Bar Association said this about the appointments:

"The appointment of Senior Counsel provides a public identification of barristers whose standing and competence justify an expectation, on the part of those who may need their services, as well as on the part of the judiciary, that they will provide outstanding service as advocates and advisers, to the good of the administration of justice."
