Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of Clarity Law, one of Queensland’s leading criminal law firms. My name is Steven Brough and I am the owner and senior solicitor here at Clarity Law.

If you are concerned about a criminal charge and the effect it will have on you then contact us.  We understand that a criminal offence is not just about the legal charges, it’s about taking care of you and leading you through this difficult time.  It may be trite to say it but we honestly care about our clients and their welfare.  We will fight for you to achieve the best result but we also won’t forget that this can be a scary experience and you will need help getting through it.

We also offer the easiest way to get expert court representation. Simply click through to our contact us page to send a quick contact us form or ring us and we will take care of everything. Generally you won’t have to come into our office; we can take care of everything over the phone, fax or by email.  If we need to meet we will come to you for no extra charge and at a time that suits you even if this is after hours.  We can service any client in South East Queensland and have offices on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts as well as in Brisbane.

We have made close to a thousand court appearances, we know the law, the courts and we guarantee you will not find a better lawyer.  We can help you with any criminal charge from assault charges and fraud charges including Centrelink fraud to stealing and drug charges. If you have a criminal charge we can help.  Check out our team here.  If you have a traffic related matter then visit our dedicated driving law website.

We appear in almost every court in South East Queensland, from Noosa to the Gold Coast we cover it all, you can have expert representation in your local court with no extra charge to you. Check out the courts we appear in here and click here for more great reasons to have us represent you.  We have helped hundreds of clients and we can help you.  

Want a final great reason to get us working for you? We are one of the best priced Criminal Law firms, generally we will be 25-40% cheaper than other firms. Our lower price doesn't mean you don't get the best advice, you will not find a better law firm to represent you, it just means you can afford to hire an expert criminal lawyer.

Contact us and we will happily talk through your matter and provide you with free no obligation advice on your matter and what the court is likely to do.  Don’t be tempted to go to court on your own, the consequences for your future could be devastating.


A drug charge in Queensland is dealt with very seriously in the courts. There are a wide variety of drug offences ranging from simple possession to more serious charges such as producing dangerous drugs and trafficking.

An assault charge can result in quite harsh penalties from the courts and the prospect of a criminal conviction preventing a person from travelling overseas or obtaining work.

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.  



Steven’s Criminal Law Experience

I have appeared well over a thousand times over the past thirteen years in courts throughout Queensland assisting clients in all manner of criminal and traffic law matters.  There is virtually no aspect of Queensland criminal law that I have not represented clients before the courts in.   Unlike other law firms where a solicitor might state they do criminal law but in reality have limited experience you can be assured that I have the knowledge and experience to properly represent you.   I am proud of the record of success I have been able to achieve for clients and their families.  I am also very proud of the trust and appreciation all my clients have shown to me.
