Colin brings extensive experience in the criminal law to bear in pursuing the best possible outcomes for clients of Armstrong Legal in Queensland. Colin has appeared in every Magistrates Court in the South-East, as well as many courts, including the District and Supreme courts, in the rest of the state, on a wide range of criminal matters, from police charges like common assault or theft through to federal matters such as welfare and tax fraud, drug importation or online child sex offences. Colin has practiced exclusively in the criminal law since his admission as a solicitor in 2010, and he is one of the few practitioners in Queensland to hold a Master’s degree specialising in the area.

Prior to commencing practice with Armstrong Legal, Colin worked as a prosecutor with the Directors of Public Prosecutions for the Australian Capital Territory and the Commonwealth as well as for the Queensland Police. Colin is an experienced advocate, with an unusual familiarity with Police and prosecution procedures as well as the court and justice processes in Queensland, all of which he is readily able to apply in the best interests of his clients.


My family and I want to thank you for representing me in this case, we're very pleased as well as relieved with the result and would not have managed this without your guidance.

Colin was an excellent representative. He understood my situation and presented clear logical arguments to the court. His advice obviously weighed heavily in my favour. I would have no hesitation in recommending Armstrong to others.

Best possible outcome achieved! Very happy with Colin's work, always kept me informed and was very easy to work with. I couldn't have asked for better representation. Highly recommended!

Thanks alot Armstrong legal, and yourself Colin, you're a legend mate.

I would like to thank Colin for his expert guidance, assistance and representation with my matter, and for securing the desired outcome.

Many thanks for appropriate advice and handling of a sensitive matter.

Thanks again Colin. Very happy and relieved with the outcome. I will be recommending you in the future. Hopefully that's the last you will be hearing off me.

Colin was exceptional, spoke extremely well and provided me with an excellent outcome !

Colin spoke beautifully on my behalf to the magistrate in a cogent respectful and well organised way. Working with Colin from start to finish engendered in me confidence that he was not only an intelligent, energetic professional but above all, a gentleman. I wish him all the very best for what I am sure will be a highly successful career.

Words cannot describe how much I appreciate the light you have shed for me on this whole situation you really have been a lighthouse for me in this storm. Again I am eternally grateful for your professionalism and help and will save your details for any time in the future I hear of anyone needing legal representation.

Thank you very much for your efforts today, and over the course of my legal matter. I understand that I've been handed the best judgement, and for this I am extremely appreciative and thankful. So, in conclusion many thanks again. Although you've provided me with exceptional service, I hope we never meet like this again.

We just wanted to extend a big thank you for today. We are so pleased with the outcome, it really is the best case, and we can’t thank you enough for helping us achieve it.

In early July you gave me some advice in regards to Centrelink fraud. I was genuinely shocked at your kindness, the time you gave me and the generosity of information you provided me with. I would really like to say thank you.

Thank you Mr Townes, we are very grateful for your guidance and expertise. You always communicated clearly to us, so we were fully versed with the situation and knew of options and direction. Then to watch you work your craft in the courtroom, you were confident, capable and credible. Thank you so much, very appreciative and a very favorable outcome.

I just wanted thank you for your help. It was a pleasure to meet you.

Just a quick thank you for yesterday, your work was very much appreciated. My son looked a lot less stressed on the way home.

I would like to thank you for representing my son last Tuesday. The result was better than we anticipated and we are so glad he did not receive a criminal record! Thank you so much for your guidance and patience.

Colin did a great job with my matter. We achieved the best possible outcome which was the least likely outcome at the beginning of the day. I highly recommend Colin and thank him for his efforts.

We wanted to thank you for your work, including the perspective you presented with clarity and cogency in court, and the part this played in securing a favourable outcome.

Thank you very much for your representation of myself today, if I can assist you in anyway by referring you to any person that needs your representation I will do with pleasure.

Thank you for helping me out and being an amazing lawyer me and my family will highly recommend you in the future.

I just want to thank you for today. The relief I feel now shows me how much stress it was causing me. Being blunt, it scared the crap out of me. I know you really made a difference. I’m committed to staying sober and will get it out of my life for good with the help of professional counselling. I will certainly recommend you to anyone who need representation in court or any other matter.

I loved Colin from the day I met him. We had a goal to not have a conviction recorded against my name and as a result of Colin's excellent work and dedication to my matter this goal was achieved.

I have secured the job overseas and could not have got the contract with a criminal conviction. Thank you once again.

I would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to you regarding every aspect of our son's court experience last month.

From our first contact with you until our last handshake at the close of court proceedings, you displayed a compassionate and articulate approach to the case and kept us all well informed of progress in both a professional and caring manner.

Thanks so much for representing my husband yesterday. We are grateful for the outcome of the case.

where to next?
