Queensland Law Society president Ken Taylor hailed the appointment, saying Mr Cash was a “good pick” who would assist in upholding justice in Maroochydore.
“Glen has a solid reputation in the legal profession as a barrister, Queen’s Counsel and most recently as Crown prosecutor for the Department of Public Prosecutions,” Mr Taylor said.
“The appointment of such a stellar practitioner to a regional area will ensure that the community of Maroochydore has access to the same caliber of justice as the larger cities.”
Mr Cash’s appointment will fill the gap left by the first solicitor appointed to Queensland’s District Court, John Robertson, who has left big shoes to be filled, Mr Taylor said.
“But I am sure he will maintain the high standards that the previous judge set,” he noted.
“On behalf of the solicitors of Queensland, I congratulate Mr Cash on his appointment and I look forward to welcoming him to the bench.”
