One law firm is embarking on a two-week road trip to regional Queensland to meet with community members in need.
Creevey Russell Lawyers will hit the road from 27 February to 13 March, conducting free meetings with rural community members in need of legal assistance.
The road trip will take them to many central west and central highlands communities including Roma, Charleville, Augathella, Tambo, Blackall, Longreach, Winton, Barcaldine, Emerald, Rolleston, Moura and Taroom.
The meetings will be led by principal Dan Creevey, offering specialist expertise in a number of areas.
These include matters such as rural property sales and purchases, land clearing, farm succession, resumptions, boundary disputes, and representation in disputes with local councils.
The meetings will also cover matters concerning mining agreements, partnership disputes, defective agricultural machinery or chemicals, spray drift claims, water licences and workplace health and safety issues.
“We take great pride in the fact that Creevey Russell Lawyers is a rural and regional firm, and we are always looking to give back to those communities,” Mr Creevey said.
“It is no secret that many of the state’s regional communities have been doing it tough for many years due to a wide range of economic and environmental factors.
“The purpose of our regional road trip is to connect with the people in these communities and listen to their concerns about any legal issues they are experiencing and to help them and their businesses.”
