Based in Brisbane with an office in Mackay the Cairns office is headed by Senior Associate Michael Finch.

Fisher Dore Lawyers specialise in criminal defence and Mr Finch is a Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialist in Criminal Defence.

Michael Finch grew up in Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands and was admitted in 2013, working extensively in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service in Western Queensland before moving to Brisbane.

In 2018 he moved back to Cairns and now joins the team at Fisher Dore as a Senior Associate.

Fisher Dore’s Managing Principal, Nick Dore is pleased to open the office and bring Fisher Dore’s ethos and expertise to the community in Cairns.

“We pride ourselves on securing the best results possible and ensuring we are approachable and supportive of our clients along the way”, he said.

“Our philosophy is to go above and beyond and it was clear to me that Michael operates this way too, so when the opportunity presented to bring him onto our team and establish a Cairns office, it was an easy decision to make.”

“Michael’s aim is to ensure his clients receive a fair and just outcome, rather than their liberty or livelihood being jeopardised unnecessarily.

“He has an enviable record of resolving Magistrates Court matters early because of his negotiation skills, which is highly valued by clients as it saves them the expense and anguish of a trial.

“Michael fosters positive relationships within the legal community for the benefit of clients and prioritises ethical practice above all else.

“We’re thrilled to have him on the Fisher Dore team.”

The Fisher Dore office is centrally located in the co-working building “Art Work Spaces” on Abbott Street.
