Brad Skuse

Brad Skuse

Managing Partner
Brad has been associated with the Courts since 1987, starting his career in the Toowoomba Magistrates Courts as a clerk.

Brad initially spent a couple of years acting as a Magistrate, before venturing out into private practice, predominately in criminal law. Born and bred on the Darling Downs, he has spent his entire working life in and around Toowoomba. With all clients, he takes a personal approach to their individual situation.

Outside of work he enjoys kicking back on the weekend with a quiet game of golf with the boys and spending time with the family.
