Why use an immigration lawyer?
When organising legal and official documentation one of the most challenging hurdles to overcome relates to the submission of the correct documentation. The immigration department will require a variety of documents; from birth certificates all the way to documentation relating to criminal records, offences and driving bans. Failure to submit these forms when requested can result in a delay, or even a rejection of the application altogether. A lawyer will have a firm understanding of this and will help to ensure that all relevant paperwork is prepared and organised, ready for submission. By utilising the services of an immigration lawyer, the chances of obtaining approval increase several times over – and this is why so many international applicants are turning to them for assistance.

Richard Timpson (MARN 0853143)
Director & Principal Lawyer
“My focus is to get all our clients the right outcome”
- Accredited immigration law specialist
- Nearly 20 year’s legal experience
- Expert in complex immigration law
- Innovative in his approach
- Migrant himself from Ireland
- His visa was granted in 2 days.
Richard qualified as a solicitor in 1999 in the Republic of Ireland. He achieved the status of an Accredited Specialist in Immigration Law in Australia in 2012. It makes him one of a small handful of Accredited Specialist lawyers in the State of Queensland.
Throughout his professional life, Richard has worked as a lawyer in various countries. He has also worked in many areas of the law, including personal injury, family law, conveyancing and wills/estates.
In 2010, Richard and his partner founded Richard Timpson Solicitors & Migration Agents in Mackay. Initially a general practice law firm, the partners quickly realised that immigration law was really their passion and providing that Aussie lifestyle to others was an exciting way to make a living.
The company started to specialise solely in immigration law focusing more on complex immigration law cases. A Brisbane branch has since been established and in 2016 the company changed its name to ‘Timpson Immigration Lawyers’ to better reflect their focus.
Being from Ireland originally, and perhaps with the firsthand experience of the process involved, has helped Richard to provide a higher quality of service and ultimately the best possible outcome for clients wanting to settle here permanently.
Richard’s expertise and commitment is extremely well respected in the industry. In addition to running his own legal firm, he helps to advise other legal firms and migration agents on complex immigration matters.
