Osborne Butler Lawyers is a small firm that has been operating for over 24 years, initially as Wettenhall Silva Solicitors and, since December 2018, as Osborne Butler Lawyers. Comprised of three experienced lawyers and four friendly administration staff, Osborne Butler has built up a strong reputation on the basis of its dedication to its clients’ interests and its committed service to the Far North Queensland community.
Founded in 1994, Osborne Butler focuses on criminal law and traffic law (including licence appeals and applications). Because our practice is focused on these limited areas, we are always able to apply the latest and most up to date knowledge to your case.
The commitment of all staff at Osborne Butler is to treat our clients with the utmost courtesy and respect and to provide our clients with the highest quality legal advice and representation. When you engage Osborne Butler, we make your case our own. You can be assured of our discretion, confidentiality and sensitivity.
Osborne Butler appreciates that the practical operation of our courts and laws can sometimes be difficult to understand. We have a policy of communicating in plain English and giving clear, easily understood advice. We know that genuine communication is a two-way street and that your instructions to us rely upon you fully understanding what we say to you.
Osborne Butler has strong social justice values and actively supports the work of community legal centres and Legal Aid Queensland. In recognition of this commitment, the firm was presented with a special award by Legal Aid Queensland as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations for “outstanding contribution to the provision of legal services to the people of Queensland” – the only firm in Far North Queensland to receive this honour.
Osborne Butler Lawyers welcomes you at any time. We are located at Level 1, 53 Grafton Street, Cairns QLD 4870. You can contact us by phone on (07) 4041 3301.
