“We approach every client’s case holistically. We want them to be able to live the life they want in Australia, being able to make their own choices for themselves and their families. Ultimately we want to make their lives better”
Richard Timpson is one of only six accredited immigration law specialists in Queensland. He qualified as a solicitor in 1999 in the Republic of Ireland and is an expert in complex immigration law. He is innovative in his approach, and when he moved to Australia, he managed to get his own visa application granted in just two days.
Throughout his professional life, Richard has worked as a lawyer in various countries. He has also worked in many areas of the law, including personal injury, family law, conveyancing, and wills/estates.
In 2010, Richard and his partner founded Richard Timpson Solicitors & Migration Agents in Mackay. Initially a general practice law firm, the partners quickly realised that immigration law was really their passion and providing that Aussie lifestyle to others was an exciting way to make a living.
The company started to specialise solely in immigration law, focusing more on complex immigration law cases. A Brisbane branch has since been established, and in 2016, the company changed its name to Timpson Immigration Lawyers to better reflect their focus.
Being from Ireland originally, and with firsthand experience of the immigration process, Richard has all the tools and real-world know-how needed to provide a higher quality of service and the best possible outcome for clients looking to settle here permanently.
Richard’s expertise and commitment is extremely well respected in the industry. In addition to running his own legal firm, he helps advise other legal firms and migration agents on complex immigration matters.
