Clarity Law

South East Queensland most trusted criminal law firm

Steven Brough

Thank you for visiting our website and let me introduce myself, my name is Steven Brough and I am the owner of Clarity Law. I founded this practice with the firm belief that I could provide clients with the best possible legal advice and the best service clients have ever received from a law firm.  For the past 10 years I have worked for a number of law firms practicing in traffic, criminal and litigation law.  During this period I experienced firsthand the great success a lawyer can provide to their clients and the great problems that could occur when a person attempted to represent themselves.   I also saw the huge costs that it took to run a law firm, costs that were passed on to the clients.  Clarity law has been created to offer all people in Queensland not only the very best legal representation for all criminal matters but also at discounted rates.  Clarity Law represents a new wave of law firms that can offer superior service and prices 25-40% cheaper than traditional law firms.  Put your faith and trust in Clarity Law and you will not be let down.
