About Us

Farrellys has been serving the North Queensland region from Cairns to the hinterlands and the Cape since its inception in 1962, when our founder Laurence [Laurie] Farrelly moved from Townsville and opened the doors of his sole practice in Cairns.

Laurie established a significant legal practice as diverse in area as it was in geography. For many years, Laurie travelled to Thursday Island to conduct criminal cases where the District Court sat in one of the most picturesque Court rooms in Queensland, with sweeping verandahs overlooking the Coral Sea.

Laurie's vision of maintaining a practice that focused always on a practical outcome for the client at a reasonable cost has been the benchmark of the practice throughout the years.

While many firms are shifting into specialising in certain fields of law, Farrellys remain committed to providing advice across a variety of areas and providing a high level of personal attention to each client. 

Our broad range of legal services is intended to meet the needs of our private and business clients. Many matters include more than one field of law and the overview of a general practitioner is needed. Our Solicitors have acquired experience in many aspects of law enabling the firm to advise clients on areas of Commercial Law including Litigation, Conveyancing and Wills and Estates.

See Practice Areas for more information.
