Gary was admitted as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of Queensland in December 1992. He was then admitted as a solicitor of the High Court of Australia and the Supreme Court of New South Wales.

Over the years I Gary has been respected by colleagues and clients for his ethics, empathy and for his ability to explain the law (and how the law applies to the facts of a case) in a way that is clear and easy to understand.
