I cannot recommend Jaimee enough as a lawyer. She took on my incredibly difficult case and worked tirelessly to achieve an excellent outcome for me. Jaimee's dedication, expertise, and attention to detail were evident throughout the entire process. She was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had, and she provided me with clear and honest communication every step of the way.

Jaimee's knowledge of the law and her strategic approach to my case were truly impressive. She was able to navigate through the complexities of the legal system with ease, and her hard work ultimately led to a successful resolution in my favor. I am so grateful for all of her hard work and dedication, and I cannot thank her enough for the outstanding job she did on my case.

If you are in need of a lawyer who will go above and beyond to achieve the best possible outcome for you, Jaimee is the one you want on your side. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of legal representation. Thank you, Jaimee, for all that you have done for me.

I found myself in an unfavourable and uncomfortable position. I was completely unprepared in handling the matter. I reached out to many firms with no answer. Gilshenan and Luton answered my call out of ordinary working hours and gave me advice in what I can do.

Feeling confident I took their advice, but after realising it was an investigation rather than a disciplinary hearing. I called Gilshenan and Luton lawyers back and asked them to represent me.

Claire.M immediately took action, and listened to all my concerns. She made it very clear to me what was being alleged. She was there every step of the process, ensuring that both parties were clear and decisive in the truth. Couldn't have asked for a better outcome!

I found Madelyn to be a very informative and helpful lawyer in my matter. I would have no problems recommending Madelyn and the support of her firm to anyone.

When you find yourself on a sinking ship, you can rely on G&L to guide you back to shore with the minimum damage. Both Madelyn and Rachelle navigated the murky waters tirelessly and with utmost professionalism, often times outshining their opposition. Always a step ahead, able to pre-empt all changes of circumstance.

Madelyn was reachable 24/7 and never missed a beat when setting a new course, particularly when it mattered. I could not of asked for more dedication. Her communication was second to none. I was always kept up to date with our current situation and real options and recommendations to tackle the challenges ahead. If the time comes and you lose your voice, I highly recommend adding G&L's number to your phone. They are well connected, and don't mess about.

The team I had with my court matter, were outstanding to say the least and achieved the best possible outcome. Throughout the experience, communication was central in maintaining a positive outlook for my situation, which was often quite emotionally and mentally taxing upon myself.

Of particular note, Ella Eberhardt was quite simply, quintessential in her research, case maintenance and her professional and personal dealings with me; Ella in my opinion was the backbone of my defence. Of particular observation, at the conclusion of my court appearance, Ella quite simply destroyed a media release application with little to no time allocation, saving me further personal anguish and character assassination at the hands of the media. I believe Ella will one day be a legal juggernaut, if measured by my dealings with the legal profession over the past 2 decades.

My sincerest and heart felt appreciation to all the team involved and highly recommend Gilshenan & Luton Lawyers.

Dear Ella

Thank you so much. I feel the punishment I received was the best possible outcome. It would not have happened if I didn’t have great representation from your firm.

I cannot express how grateful I am for the exceptional legal support provided by Gilshenan & Luton. As a client, I recently sought their assistance in a complex legal matter, and the results exceeded my expectations.

From the moment I engaged with the firm, their team exhibited professionalism, dedication, and expertise. Samantha and her team navigated my case meticulously, offering clear guidance and insights at every step. Their commitment to achieving the best possible outcome was evident throughout the process.

Also, the communication and transparency displayed by Gilshenan & Luton were outstanding. They kept me informed, addressed my concerns promptly, and ensured I was well informed about the progress of my case.

Highly Recommended Criminal Lawyer!

I am extremely grateful to have had Ella Eberhardt as my criminal lawyer. From the beginning, Ella provided exceptional legal representation and support. Their deep knowledge of criminal law, attention to detail, and strategic approach were instrumental in building a strong defense for my case.

Ella's communication skills are outstanding. They patiently listened to my concerns, answered my questions promptly, and explained complex legal matters in a way that was easy to understand. Throughout the entire process, I felt informed and reassured.

When it came to representing me in court, Ella's courtroom presence and persuasive advocacy were remarkable. They argued my case with confidence and skill, resulting in a favorable outcome. Ella's dedication, professionalism, and legal acumen make them an outstanding criminal lawyer.

Dear Callan,

What a lovely team you have there to assist us hardened criminals.   In all seriousness, I wanted to tell you how wonderful Harold was! I was so nervous, as I'd never seen the inside of a courtroom before, let alone had to stand before a magistrate. 

I felt like a bit of a basket case. But Harold never made me feel that I was being needy or difficult. He was so kind; he was dignified way beyond his years; gently humorous; respectful; and he utterly knew what he was doing at every step. I could not have imagined anyone better to assist me and to accompany me to court and help me through the ordeal. And he got me a fantastic outcome! I could go on and on about his strengths.

But thank you Callan, and a huge shout-out to Harold. 

All good wishes for the new year.

I highly recommend Gilshenan & Luton Lawyers, in particular Hamish Swanson.

Due to unfortunate circumstances I required legal defence, which saw me the pleasure of working with Hamish.

I can honestly say that they are by far the best law firm I have ever engaged. Not only was Hamish extremely professional and knowledgeable, but he spent a considerable amount of time looking into the facts of the matter & understanding the situation that was at hand.

Considering it was such an important matter, I felt confident in my representation and Hamish eased the anxiety around the situation.

I felt supported at all times during proceedings and I was confident every step of the way, that Hamish was working to secure the best outcome for myself and my family.

My experience with Melanie Morris was amazing from beginning to end. I had very little experience with defending myself in work related matters. She was very understanding and patient through the whole process.

She kept me informed all along. She made what could have been a very stressful and emotional time so much better. She was always happy to return my calls and messages in good time.

Living in Central Queensland my options were limited given the short time I had to respond, it was one practice referred to me when my time was running out.

Thank you so much Melanie Morris for your time and effort. The outcome was me coming out the other end with my dignity intact.

Gilshenan & Luton represented criminal matters which involved significant mental health issues at the core of the matters. I did preliminary research to identify lawyers with experience in these matters, and emailed a brief of the situation for discussion. I was quite surprised by the differences in the businesses from an aggressive approach with full fees into their bank before starting to empathetic approach with understanding of the strains the process will place on the client and finances.

For the latter empathetic approach I chose Gilshenan & Luton who demonstrated successes with mental health cases, who I could identify understood the issues around mental health, and had a process of progressive payments as the case evolved to ease financial outlay.

The staff fully understand the systems they work within, and risk assess their plans to achieve the best outcome. This involves early and continued contact with the prosecution to gauge their position on the matters. One detraction was the time some of the assessments took to be completed, which in this matter caused more complexity. This was generally out of Gilshenan & Luton's hands though.

For a complex case, Gilshenan & Luton's argument focussed on critical issues with extensive supporting documentation, achieving agreement by the court and a very reasonable sentence.

I visited the offices of Gilshenan & Luton in the worst months of my life and career.  Craig Pratt and Claire McGee met with my husband and I with very little notice after a referral from my Human Resources Legal team.  They navigated my legal matters with AHPRA, OHO and my college with competence and expert skill. 

I was extremely pleased with the outcomes of my matters from a timely and legal perspective.  Claire's estimations on costing were accurate and my final legal bill was surprisingly under my budget.  As much as I hope that I never need their services again, there is not another firm I'd choose for similar events. Needless to say, my outcome too was beyond what we had hoped for.

Appreciation on your fabulous win Claire and a precedent that will assist many doctors like me struggling to navigate a system that doesn't understand the pressures we face.

Dear Glen and Sarah

It’s been a long road which has finally come to a successful end.   From the very beginning Sarah installed complete confidence in me , and I had total trust in her, never querying any of her decisions or advice along the way.   She also provided enormous support, and without her I don’t feel that I would’ve ever been manage to negotiate the difficult times that I have had.

There were an enormous amount of emails that I sent to Sarah along the way , many of which were probably quite unnecessary. I’m sure she found them quite irritating at times but  nevertheless the prompt reply and supportive advice was greatly appreciated throughout the process.

I also want to thank Sarah for her amazing professional approach when it came to discussing the “ tough stuff “ . Discussing the realities of possible imprisonment cannot be easy , but it was done in an amazing professional and bizarrely reassuring manner . To this end she provided me with all the advice that I would’ve needed but fortunately this did not transpire.

Sarah I can only thank you from the bottom of my heart for the amazing help that you’ve given me throughout this process. I will never forget it and you will always be somebody that I will be eternally grateful to.

Once again, thank you so so much for everything – S.M [Extract]

Callan was very kind, professional and reachable throughout the matter. It was easy to get in touch with Callan when I needed to. I would recommend Callan and G&L to my contacts, if they ever needed to talk to a lawyer who listens & understands. Thanks.

Great law firm and rather honest people. I felt with Glenn and Rachel and I'm very happy with what I paid for. They're quite expensive but when it comes to this type of thing you really do get what you pay for.

Provided an amazing service and were always contactable. Handled all legal matters with promptness and precision but also provided emotional support and understanding. Many thanks to Craig Pratt who handed my case to Claire McGee, with whom my matters were dealt with flawlessly. Thank you Claire.

Dear Glen,  I want to thank you most sincerely for handling my matter. It has been a long haul.  Your support was really appreciated.  Best wishes to you in all your work, meeting people in their time of need, and steering them through the sometime tortuous pathways that

impact heavily upon their lives and that of their families. Your empathy towards me is appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

I had a matter where I was unfairly dismissed after a very incompetent investigation that went for nearly three years. I then had a second matter that arose approximately 12 months later and as a result a second investigation was commenced.

I decided to appeal the matter through QCAT and was appointed Gilshenan and Luton as my representing legal team by my union. I had the absolute pleasure of dealing with Melanie, Sarah and Craig, all were honest and walked me through my options, what to expect and how the process works.
I ended up with Sarah as my lawyer and she was nothing short of brilliant.

Sarah was the consummate professional from the start and walked me through the process we would be following from start to finish. Sarah and the team are highly professional, efficient, approachable and patient, ticked every box! I had very good experiences being her client. Any queries I had, she answered with empathy and in a timely manner. I was extremely impressed with her responsiveness, professionalism and her hard work in my case. Sarah gave excellent advice throughout the proceedings to ensure the best possible outcome. I felt she personally cared about my future and I feel she went above and beyond my expectations. As a result of the unbridled dedication and the legal team put together by Gilshenan and Luton including employing the assistance of barrister Matt Black my case was “set aside” by the presiding member at the initial QCAT hearing.

This decision was of course appealed by my previous employer and again the Gilshenan and Luton team lead by Sarah handled the appeal through QCATA and the “leave to appeal” sought by my employer was dismissed, I was declared innocent and my name cleared, case closed.

In relation to the second matter I had Sarah with me through those allegations as well. When it came to a “directed” interview, Gilshenan and Luton had a solicitor in my location in relation to another matter and he was fully briefed by Sarah and Craig sat in with me during the interview. Craig was calming and a couple times needed to tap me on the shoulder, his knowledge of my case and also the legalities in relation to the interview process were second to none and I could not recommend him highly enough.

As a result of the evidence challenged or lack thereof I was also “cleared” due to “no evidence to offer” and in my belief as well the outstanding job during the interview by Craig.

I can’t talk highly enough nor praise the team at Gilshenan and Luton to the extent they deserve. Professional and Courteous and with a will to win and achieve the best result possible, thanks to Melanie, Sarah and Craig who due to their high level of skill have resulted in my innocence being proven and my name being cleared.

In case you wondered, yes I am a Queensland Police Officer….

I highly recommend Gilshenan & Luton Legal Practice. Their team are very welcoming and immediately you feel their warm sense of trust right away. Craig and Natalie in particular I commend on their efforts and for always giving 100% attention to my case. They are straight to the point and no mucking around or beating around the bush, and for this trust them with everything I have and could not ask for a better outcome. I recommend this legal team for anyone who needs a loyal law firm. Thanks for everything.

This is a highly performing legal firm. I was very fortunate to be referred to this fantastic firm in very challenging and distressing personal circumstances. Claire McGee is a highly professional lawyer but at the same time she is very approachable.

Reliable and superbly organised, she is a source of confidence and great advice when things are uncertain and works hard all the time at realising the best solutions for her clients. Patrick Quinn has a wealth of knowledge and information and a great legal instinct that would add real value to any legal matter.

The entire team at Gilshenan & Luton is focussed at delivering the best outcomes for their clients. They work well together as a team, each providing a valuable contribution. Because you have a highly effective team behind you, they are highly effective at achieving the best outcomes.

From the moment I started working with GNL (mainly Callan), they treated me with the upmost respect. They were honest and upfront about goals and hurdles and positive in their outlook. Through what was the most difficult time of my life, Callan and GNL were always there and were extremely supportive. Over months, they worked tirelessly, working over weekends and after hours and always made me feel like I was at the top of their priorities.
I always received timely advice, always outlining my options at every step which allowed me to make informed decisions. Everyone I had the pleasure of working with at GNL are all very supportive and compassionate. I am forever thankful to Callan and his team for all their help and support through these difficult times and to provide me with a positive outcome.
Callan would frequently ask me how my personal and family life was going throughout the whole process which really demonstrates his caring personality. After the process was over, he reached out to me to ask how I was and how I was progressing in all aspects of my life.

I cannot recommend GNL (especially Callan Lloyd and Glen Cranny) highly enough for their breadth of knowledge, expertise, great outcomes and how they treat their clients.
Thank you.

Acquired the need for legal representation through tragic circumstances and the experience was one that will remain with me for rest of my life. Compassionate and professional throughout my court matter. I could not have asked nor hoped for more. Can’t recommend highly enough! Thank you again.

In what was a very traumatic time of my life over 8 months, I found working closely with Glen and Eleanor was quite incredibly amazing. They were both reassuring, supportive and very professional and at all times had my back. I always felt confident they were doing their best for me and my family and were genuinely interested in our health and wellbeing throughout the process. Eleanor in particular was one of the kindest and humble people I have had the pleasure of getting to know and was never shy of telling the situation how it was to get the result she was determined to achieve. This quality is hard to find in people and both Eleanor and Glen has it in abundance. Thank you for everything you have done for me and my family. Matt

Extra ordinary outcome. Excellent team. I am from Victoria and have never personally met Rachel and Callan, however they handled my case very well. If you're from another state and find yourself in trouble in Queensland, then GNL is your go to. Cheers guys!

Glen Cranny was referred to me during a difficult professional time where I had been falsely accused. Glen was incredibly professional and helped me prepare for and get through an interview. In the end, none of the allegations stuck. Glen kept me informed of his fees and his case plan from the very beginning. I'm so glad I engaged Glen to help me deal with the situation, and would highly recommend him.

I cannot recommend Gilshenan and Luton (specifically Callan Lloyd) highly enough.

Having had a fairly sudden introduction to the Queensland Criminal Justice System, I found that the biggest shock was the loss of control over your own future. It took a toll on my family, my mental health, everything.

Callan arrived within literal minutes of his services being engaged, and then worked tirelessly for the next eighteen months to achieve a successful outcome. He was tactful in his approach, understanding of the immense stress of the situation and the scope of his help extended so much further than just legal advice. Psychologists were recommended and then liaised with, and my family was kept calm and informed with a deft hand, often at no cost.

The advice I received was clear, timely and non-judgemental. Callan was familiar with the barrister of my choice, and I was comfortable knowing that whether I proceeded to trial or not he would defend me in court to the best of his (or anyone's) ability.

Thanks to Gilshenan and Luton I was able to make a level-headed and informed decision that led to a near-perfect outcome. Judges, jurors, witnesses and prosecutors are variables that you can't control, but you can choose your lawyer, and in my opinion this firm is the best choice you can make.

I was fortunate enough to be steered towards Gilshenan & Luton Legal Practice when a dire incident presented itself, that I honestly believed had no possibility of ‘ever’ being resolved to a satisfactory standard of my liking. The practitioners at the firm not only showed professionalism, commitment and understanding but what I believe is way more important than all that, was sincere compassion to me and my family. I was afforded the services of some wonderful and experienced legal bodies throughout my almost 2 years of assistance, but by far and away the generosity and doggedness of solicitor Mr C LLOYD was something that not only made the dreadfulness of such a serious situation somewhat bearable, but his ability to compromise and re-adapt the defensive plans to suit constant changes thrust upon us during the case was a credit to not only himself but the law firm as a whole. I don’t believe I could have sustained the prolonged willingness to defend myself without the competent assistance of G&L. I would thoroughly recommend them (and have done so) to anyone in a similar position.
