Accredited Specialist Queensland Law Society logo - Fisher Dore Lawyer

The Queensland Law Society established the Specialist Accreditation scheme to primarily provide:

  • Solicitors with an opportunity to formally recognise their high level of competency and knowledge in their chosen area of legal practice; and
  • Guidance to the public and the profession as to which legal practitioners are truly leaders in their area of expertise.

This is part of a national benchmark for recognising specialist expertise. In Queensland, Specialist Accreditation acknowledges the top 4.5% of solicitors; there are currently over 12,000 solicitors in Queensland, of which just over 500 are accredited specialists.

We are proud of our team members who are part of this elite group:

Great law firm. Technically brilliant, and focused on achieving the outcome that the client wants... and achieving it as quickly as possible.

Josh - Facebook Review

Fisher Dore Lawyers have represented me in a very important case over the last three years. In all that time I have found them to be always informative, efficient and understanding. A very professional company, always available to me for any questions or advice and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone needing effective legal assistance.

I'm so grateful for your efforts and the great work you did on my behalf. Thanks again for going above and beyond, and doing everything you could to win my case.

I just wanted to put into writing, just how profoundly grateful I am for the sound advice & skilful representation you provided. The outcome you secured for me was better than I could have dared to wish for. I owe you a debt of gratitude.

I just wanted to say thank you very much for your handling of my case. I am very pleased with the outcome as well as your professionalism in communication and encouragement in my difficult time. Once again, thank you very much.

I want to thank you for looking after us both in a legal sense and in your sense of care. This has been enormously stressful. Having your diligent professionalism was greatly reassuring.

You will always be known to me and my family as the person who gave us the biggest gift we could ever want. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Thank you so much for your amazing work. You have made a compelling argument for me and I believe my application was successful only because of your excellent work.
