Press Release 14 March 2017
Regional Queensland towns are struggling through lack of services and support with all areas needing greater understanding from Government, says leading legal firm Creevey Russell Lawyers.
The firm’s Principal Dan Creevey has just completed a two-week regional road trip to offer free consultations with community members on any legal or other issue they may be experiencing.
Mr Creevey’s 3000klm tour stretched from Toowoomba to Middleton and back and included the Central West and Central Highlands communities of Roma, Charleville, Longreach, Winton, Barcaldine, Emerald, Rolleston, Moura and Taroom.
“Country towns are really struggling with lack of services and lack of support is extremely apparent,” said Mr Creevey, who plans to make the regional road trips regularly.
“They just want a greater understanding of their situation from authorities. Each area has its unique issues whether it be flood mitigation, prickly trees, bad roads or artesian water problems.”
Mr Creevey said clients and contacts were pleased to see a regional law firm in their town experiencing their situation first hand.
“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.
“There is clearly a demand for us to be in our clients’ country and we will keep coming back. We can offer a wide variety of services to our clients, with expertise in areas of Agricultural Law, Commercial Law, Criminal Law, Property Law, Wills & Estates, Succession Planning, Family Law and Personal Law.
“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 tour was to connect with the people in these communities and listen to their concerns. We are already planning our next road trip for later in the year.”
