Who is Zarah Garde-Wilson?

Zarah Garde-Wilson is an Australian solicitor in Victoria who has acted for many persons under investigation by Victoria Police in relation to the Melbourne gangland killings of 1998-2006.

Garde-Wilson is a graduate of the University of Western Australia, where she resided at St. George's College.

Upon graduation, Garde-Wilson commenced articles of clerkship with Perth and Melbourne criminal law firm Pryles & Defteros.

She was a girlfriend to convicted criminal, Lewis Caine, himself a victim in 2004 of the gangland killings.

Garde-Wilson was set to face trial on charges of possessing an unregistered gun that had allegedly belonged to Caine. She was acquitted of this charge and also charges of giving false evidence to the Australian Crime Commission.

Garde-Wilson successfully challenged the decision by the Victorian Legal Services Board to not renew her certificate to practise law in the state; she is now regarded as a "fit and proper person". This follows a conviction on contempt of court charges for failing to testify against the men later convicted of killing Caine. In the drama series Underbelly Garde-Wilson is played by actress Kestie Morassi
