McConnell & Saldumbide Criminal Lawyers is a boutique criminal law firm that specialises in defending individuals against prosecutions for criminal, regulatory and traffic offences.

We understand that facing the legal system is one of the most stressful times in a person’s life, and we pride ourselves on ensuring that our clients feel empowered and supported at all stages of their matters. Based in the heart of the CBD of Toowoomba, Queensland, we appear frequently in the Supreme, District and Magistrates Courts throughout Queensland. Unlike general practice law firms, M&S Lawyers was established to focus purely on defending those under prosecution by the State. Criminal law is expansive and constantly evolving, and our expertise in this area alone allows us to identify issues and potential defences that are particular to your case.

Our Directors, Mr Joe McConnell and Ms Chelsea Saldumbide, have worked solely in criminal and traffic law throughout the entirety of their legal careers. Each bring a wealth of experience and a strong reputation as lawyers who are passionate in representing each and every one of their clients. Every avenue of preparation and analysis is explored and undertaken to ensure your rights are protected and you obtain the best possible result. It is quite often that due to this extensive preparation, your matter will resolve without the need for a trial.

Ultimately, our clients are our absolute priority, and we put a premium on your accessibility to your lawyer and the supporting staff at M&S Lawyers. We are fully committed to providing you with assistance every step of the way and will ensure that your queries via email, phone messages or text messages are responded to swiftly. For matters of urgency, such as someone close to you being arrested, we are able to provide advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We offer a variety of fees which are reviewed with you in absolute detail to avoid any surprises. Payment plans are offered, and we work with you to arrange a payment structure that meets your specific needs. 

In criminal and traffic law no two matters are the same, and by employing M&S Lawyers you are engaging a firm who strives for excellence and provides distinctive representation tailored to your specific case.
