Brisbane's best criminal defence lawyer

Colin Townes, Principal & Director of Townes & Associates is one of Queensland’s best defence lawyers and his firm aims to provide the highest quality, most cost effective, representation to clients whether they are fighting a Police charge or need a compassionate guide, and fierce advocate, to secure a just outcome on sentence.

A charge can have severe and lasting consequences for an individual, particularly a first time offender, for example a loss of licence, a criminal record or even a jail sentence.  Experienced and expert representation is essential if a ‘worst case’ outcome is to be avoided.  Townes & Associates offers just such representation.

    The Firm

    Townes & Associates applies the latest, cutting edge, technology to the practice of our very limited areas of professional focus.  We offer unrivalled levels of responsiveness, service and expertise in the areas of criminal defence, traffic law and domestic violence proceedings. 

    Why Choose Townes & Associates?


    Colin Townes, the Principal and Director of Townes & Associates, is an experienced criminal defence lawyer. Colin has both prosecuted and defended cases in all Courts in Queensland and northern New South Wales and he is one of the very few practitioners to hold a Master's degree specialising in the criminal law.

    Proper preparation

    Townes & Associate's modern practice processes mean we can dedicate proper time to preparing your case with less time directed toward maintaining an out-dated and cumbersome 'traditional' practice.

    Cost effective representation

    The average law firm spends money on a range of overheads which Townes & Associates have eliminated, overheads which do not progress client's matters but which add to their costs. Our firm may not be the cheapest in the market (or we might be) but you can be sure you are paying for expert representation, not unnecessary operating costs, when you retain us to act.

    Colin did a great job with my matter. We achieved the best possible outcome which was the least likely outcome at the beginning of the day. I highly recommend Colin and thank him for his efforts.

    - Client A, Brisbane Magistrates Court

    Thank you Mr Townes, we are very grateful for your guidance and expertise. You always communicated clearly to us, so we were fully versed with the situation and knew of options and direction. Then to watch you work your craft in the courtroom, you were confident, capable and credible. Thank you so much, very appreciative and a very favourable outcome.

    - Client B, Southport Magistrates Court

    I loved Colin from the day I met him. We had a goal to not have a conviction recorded against my name and as a result of Colin's excellent work and dedication to my matter this goal was achieved.
