We look back and are grateful that Pat O’Shea and Mark Dyer formed O'Shea & Dyer Solicitors, back in 1983. Pat and Mark were the most excellent of lawyers who worked with many people in the Townsville community, providing them with quality, affordable, legal services for many years. Pat and Mark are fondly remembered by many of our clients. You may spot them around town if you are on a golf course or at a local theatre production.
Many of our older clients will remember OSD’s original location in Northtown on the Mall. We’ve been at our ‘new’ location in Flinders Street East, since the year 2000. You can find us above Subway and next door to Pieface. (225-229 Flinders Street East.)
Ivan left Abergowrie in 1986 to start a law degree at UQ in Brisbane. Ivan Baxter was given his first job by Pat O’Shea in 1989 when he came back North. He finished off his law degree while working as an Articled Clerk at O’Shea & Dyer. Ivan had found his dream job and Pat and Mark were great teachers, not just of the practice of law, but of how to treat people. Ivan was admitted as a solicitor in 1991 and became a partner in the business a short time later in 1994. Ivan now leads the business he has been part of for over 27 years. Pat O’Shea retired in 2008 after 25 years, and Mark Dyer in 2014, after nearly 30 years. OSD became incorporated in 2013 with Ivan as the sole director.
We are proud to say that for over thirty years, OSD has provided quality and affordable legal services to people in Townsville and North Queensland and that we have people in our team, like Shelleigh Naessens and Robyn Mullins who have been with us since 1998, nearly 20 years! And of course Ivan, who has been an integral part of the business for over 27 years.
