Doyle’s Guide

Doyle’s Guide is an independent organisation that provides a comprehensive resource of Australian legal services. Each year Doyle’s conducts independent research and rates and recommends law firms and lawyers based on interviews with clients, peers, and relevant industry bodies.

“Preeminent” and “Leading” lawyers are those who consistently draw the praise of both clients and peers. “Recommended” lawyers are those who display particular skills or attributes within the area.

Since the inception of the rankings in Queensland, our firm has been consistently ranked as a leading criminal defence law firm and our principals have received numerous individual rankings in their specialities.

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.

I’ve prosecuted against Nick Dore and I’m a fan of his work. If I ever needed a Defence solicitor in my corner, I’d choose him... what can I say, the man is brilliant.

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. You have always been very professional, punctual and provided me with accurate advice at all times. I am extremely grateful that I had you as my lawyer.
