WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"To say I’ve been impressed with Creevey Horrell Lawyers would be an understatement. They have been at all times very professional, knowledgeable, understanding and incredibly tenacious and persistent in striving to get the best result possible in this case. I would have been lost without them and the result would have been very bad and expensive. It gave my brother and I great peace of mind to know that we were being looked after by such a competent firm. Consequently, I can’t recommend Creevey Horrell Lawyers highly enough as the people to go to for legal assistance and guidance."
John and Peter Stewart
Supreme Court of Queensland
Successful representation of a Toowoomba landowner after his property developer neighbour performed unapproved and unlawful earthworks on an adjoining property. The developer performed excavation works along the common boundary creating a vertical, five-meter drop from our client’s land to theirs. This unapproved earthwork withdrew the lateral support to our client’s land. Toowoomba Regional Council failed to help our client despite multiple requests and our office was then retained. We promptly filed an application for a mandatory injunction in the Supreme Court of Queensland to stop the developer carrying out any further works and forcing them to perform rectification works to the land. Our application was entirely successful, and the Court granted the injunction and ordered the developer to pay costs. Bringing us to present day, after engaging experts and closely monitoring the developer to ensure compliance with an amended development approval, a retaining wall has now been constructed that provides support to our client’s land.
Our client was the defendant in proceedings initiated in the Supreme Court of New South Wales relating to a dispute that arose with respect to a construction joint venture of industrial sheds. He owned the land and the plaintiff was the builder constructing the sheds on the land. On the first day of trial, we brought an application to exclude all of the critical affidavit material sworn by the plaintiff, on the basis that it was either hearsay, irrelevant or unfounded conclusions deposed to by the plaintiff. Our application was entirely successful and all of the evidence was ruled by the Judge to be excluded on the grounds that it was inadmissible. After this ruling, the plaintiff approached our client seeking to settle the matter and we successfully negotiated a resolution that was extremely favourable to our client.

Successful representation of Springsure cotton growers who had suffered significant damage following the application of a shuttle of Wipe-Out which was contaminated with 2,4D (2,4 Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid). Our clients’ claim was against the supplier of the chemical for breaches under the Sale of Goods Act 1896 for misleading and deceptive conduct, and the Australian Consumer Law for supplying goods that were not of merchantable quality and not fit for their intended purpose. Following an application made by our office for summary judgement, which was to be heard in Rockhampton, the parties reached a settlement of the matter.
