About the firm

This Brisbane north suburban law firm conducted by Lawyer G. R. (Ray) Brown evolved out of Sandgate’s very oldest law firm. He carries an extensive legal knowledge and a wide range of experiences gained as a legal representative, adviser and litigant throughout his career. He well exceeds the minimum requirements for Compulsory Professional Education each year by attending local and international Law Conferences. He has held the office of Notary Public since 1987 and has been a Commissioner for Affidavits New Zealand since 1990. He is of course a member of the Queensland Law Society but also the Law Council of Australia.

Since 1969 he has been proud to practice as a generalist Solicitor offering a wide range of legal services to accommodate the community’s needs. He is now a Queensland senior Solicitor and has served for more years than any other local and most other Queensland Lawyers.

Still more about the firm

As well as the wide range of “ordinary” matters in which this firm has extensive experience, this Lawyer has worked on a wide range of cases that are quite out of the ordinary. Thus, should you need a Lawyer for legal advice or service, ordinary or not so ordinary, (unlike the “one subject only” Specialist) this Sandgate Solicitor will be able to help.

Some of the previous “not so ordinary” cases over the years include:-

  • The controversial surveying of Russell Island
  • Election defamation
  • Disputed naming of a newspaper
  • Police corruption
  • Medical malpractice
  • Customs fraud
  • Personal defamation
  • High Court Appeal

As generalist, i.e. non-specialist Lawyers, the firm is capable of transitioning from one area of the law to another and so you will not be sent away to find another Lawyer to undertake the next level of legal service you need, perhaps in that same matter.
