Brad Shanahan, Partner



When I was admitted as a solicitor on 29 January 1991, I had no idea how rewarding a career of helping injured people, through tough times in their life, would be.  I still like to help injured people following serious workplace injuries, motor vehicle accidents, mining accidents and any other accident or incident as well.  Anyone who has been injured or suffered a loss through no fault of their own can call me for advice.

I received my Accreditation from the Queensland Law Society as a Personal Injuries Specialist on 1 July 1998. I am also a Queensland Law Society approved Mediator and now a Senior Counsellor.

Over the last 30 years, I have acted for hundreds of nice people who have been injured through no fault of their own . I will have “your back” when you need it the most.

“I am so happy in dealing with Wallace & Wallace, regarding property settlement and personal injury.  Thank you very much.


“Many thanks to you Brad and your team for helping make our life a little easier to live with.”

Kev & Kris

“Brad was very thorough in his processes.  He is very caring in his manner and had a genuine concern for me, as the client.  This, I think, pervades throughout the entire firm.”


“Brad, thank you for all your help through the tough years, it was an excellent outcome.”

Jakobus & Wilma

“Thank you Brad for all your efforts to obtain a favourable outcome.  We both appreciate that willingness to work on our behalf and to give us new possibilities for the future.”


“I recently had a claim that was settled by Brad Shanahan at Wallace & Wallace whom made the process very smooth, we were very happy with the services provided and thoroughly recommend.”


“The level of service and advice was to a high standard.  Wallace & Wallace will be the first recommendation should we know of anyone needing this.  I am very satisfied with the outcome.”


“Brad, thanks for having my back.”


“I have never had experience working with a Law firm so I guess I really don’t have anything to compare with but I can say my experience with Wallace & Wallace was certainly a positive experience where everything possible was done to achieve a positive outcome.  I have already recommended Wallace & Wallace to 2 people explaining that they will not be disappointed.  Extremely satisfied with my overall experience.  I went into this very unsure that I was deserving of anything, I have always just plodded along in life.  I was made to feel like I was not only deserving but only asking for what I am entitled to.  This did take a lot of convincing and still right to the end I had some unsurety but would and do recommend this firm and if ever needed again would use no one else.  I found all staff that I had dealings with during this damages claim so very nice and helpful.  I would like to definitely make a special mention to Brad Shanahan my solicitor in this claim he was amazing, very compassionate and helpful in every way.
