Why choose us?

We are leaders in criminal defence and professional misconduct cases across Queensland. We are the lawyers of choice for those that want private legal representation of the highest quality and skill.

We are proud of our reputation as the best criminal law firm in Brisbane.  Although we are a boutique firm, we have the resources and experience to handle large and complex cases, whilst providing a personalised service dedicated to you and your case.

We have a very deliberate approach to our work; we look for quality rather than quantity. With a focus on a very high standard of service and attention to detail, our lawyers consistently achieve great results for our clients.

Nobody wants or needs legal jargon. We use plain English and explain things in a way that clients can readily understand.

We don’t dictate – we advise

We provide you with clear and concise advice to enable you to understand your options. We work both for you and with you, to assist you in making decisions throughout your case.

Confidentiality and discretion guaranteed

We conduct our work with absolute discretion. Despite our continual involvement with high profile clients and cases, it is not our style to give media interviews or otherwise seek to promote ourselves at the expense of our clients’ privacy.

We understand that our clients are often facing the most challenging period of their lives, and our service delivers not just an expert knowledge of the law, but also exceptional care and commitment on a personal level.

We can help you – from the smallest traffic issue through to the most serious criminal charge.

How can we help you today?
