FAQ


What are your opening hours?

MacDonald Law is now open 7 Days a week.

While Macdonald Law has informally seen clients on weekends for years, we hereby announce that, due to demand, our Toowoomba office will be formally open 7 days a week. With the changing world and people working differing hours, we believe that this service is needed. We believe that we are the first law firm in Queensland to open 7 days per week but probably won't be the last. Do you remember when petrol stations and chemists didn't open Sundays? It would be hard to imagine them not being open now. We suspect it will be the same for law firms in a few years.


What if I am unable to come to your office?

If you are unable to attend MacDonald Law's offices, we may be able to come to you. We regularly see clients at home, at hospitals and aged care facilities, and in custody. If you require a solicitor to visit you, please ring 07 4638 9433 and enquire about our on-site services.


I am the executor of a deceased estate. What I am supposed to do?

The executor of a deceased estate is a very important role. You could be responsible for ensuring that beneficiaries receive that which they are provided for in the will. You could be responsible for ensuring that dependents are looked after and provided for.

Executing a deceased estate can be a challenging and stressful job. You should seek professional counsel to help you do the job properly, and ensure that you are acting in accordance with the will and in accordance with all laws.


I have been accused of a criminal offence. What should I do?

If you have been arrested or are otherwise accused of a criminal act, we recommend that you seek legal counsel immediately. Ensure you advise the police that you wish to seek counsel before answering any questions aside from confirming your identity.

We can be contacted any time on 07 4638 9433 should you require advice on a criminal matter.
