Our Lawyers - Smart, Diverse and Engaged

We employ talented lawyers with diverse backgrounds and common sense.


We involve our lawyers in the culture and management of the firm.  This simple strategy means that all of our lawyers understand the importance of professional, practical and sound advice.

Many of our lawyers are orginally from Bundaberg but have gained impressive experience in Australia's capital cities and overseas.  They returned to our region because of our firm's solid 100 year reputation in the Wide Bay.

KEY Facts and Figures

  • We have offices in Bundaberg and Brisbane.
  • We were formerly known as McCullough Robertson Hancock Lawyers.  Not surprisingly, we soon found that clients abbreviated that name to 'MRH Lawyers' and that name has stuck.
  • The firm has 4 Partners, 5 employed Solicitors and 12 Support Staff.

  • We have fantastic clients throughout Australia.  They include government authorities, publicly listed corporations, major private corporations, business directors and owners, not-for-profit organisations, developers, entrepreneurs and individuals.
