Our Firm

At Connolly Suthers Lawyers we feel privileged to conduct the law and resource it to give you the ultimate protection.

Our experience, knowledge and genuine concern for every case set us apart from other law firms in Townsville and the rest of the North Queensland area.

We enjoy every day in the office and pursue our jobs with passion. To be entrusted with the legal affairs of someone else is a great honour. We know what you feel and believe and use this as our motivation to make a difference.

How we do it? We selectively hire lawyers who believe in what we do and love their profession. The firm has a long history of employing graduates from Townsville’s James Cook University. We see this as a way of giving something back to our local community and means these young people already know the north, they know its industries and they know the people.

During your lifetime you may require a lawyer for different situations, with Connolly Suthers you can be certain that you are dealing with quality lawyers across all services. We have considerable expertise and experience in all aspects of compensation law, family law, wills and estates, conveyancing, criminal law, property law, business services and dispute resolution.

We’re pleased to be involved

We understand that sometimes it is difficult to share personal problems with someone you don’t know personally. That is why we make every conversation with clients a meaningful and comfortable one. We take a personal approach to every case, taking the client’s needs and emotions into account. As we love what we do, we are happy to be involved in someone else’s life, particularly during difficult times.

We have Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialists in Property Law, Succession Law and Personal Injuries litigation. By combining extensively trained and experienced legal practitioners with state-of-the-art communications and technology, Connolly Suthers delivers a level of legal service that is unrivalled in the region.

We know that no situation is exactly the same and there is always something new to learn and with over 125 years of experience there are not many cases that we haven’t worked with.

It feels good to be the firm that North Queenslanders turn to and trust.  

The most professional and prompt attention was given to an unfortunate circumstance that required urgent business resolution advice. All initial advice was provided with accuracy without the immediate discussion of money and fees. There was no pressure at any stage throughout my communication with this firm and I felt comfortable with the open communication and transparency given the circumstances. I would highly recommend utilising the services of Connolly Suthers Lawyers to anyone requiring this specialised field. The knowledge, foresight, and content of all correspondence displays that of a very well educated team that strives to provide the right advice in a timely manner. I am grateful and feel at ease knowing that Connolly Suthers take their role in representing their clients seriously. I will not use anyone else for any personal, or small business legal requirements or advice. The feeling of support from such a professional entity is rare and yet they have succeeded in doing so. Thank you, and from a Townsville family owned and operated small business, your actions are greatly appreciated. 5 stars for every aspect throughout our interactions.

“Bill O’Toole has been our solicitor for the past three years. What keeps us returning is his expertise in law and efficiency in getting a job done. This is something we’ve found to be very assuring. Bill has always taken great care of us and with his friendly personality we always feel right at home in his presence. Connolly Suthers is a fantastic law firm and we could not recommend them highly enough.” 


“Connolly Suthers made a difference to our lives. It was an emotional time for us. We put all our trust in the Solicitor and his team and they were so consistent! I recall how we would read the letters we received and discussed each one. 

Talking to the Solicitor and his team over the phone gave us safety, we felt we had a trusted Navigator. 

When it came time for us to make our wills we went back to the Solicitor we knew then, over twenty years ago. Trust and consistency, that is what we appreciated from our experiences with your firm.”

"We were recommend by a friend to go to Connolly Suthers Law Firm, which we haven’t been disappointed.

From the first time we went to the last time they make you feel comfortable talking to them as everything is explained so clearly so you understand. The solicitor and there team are so professional with what they do and they work to get the best possible result for you.

We are also going back to get our Will done with them as they seem more like friends now and not solicitors."
