Tracey is the Director of Queensland Law Practice. Tracey was admitted as a Barrister in 2001and in 2008 Tracey made the tough call to leave her barrister chambers, and pursue her other passion; building business’ and helping other people to build theirs.

If anyone understands the excitement and yet daunting feeling of opening a new business it is Tracey.  Tracey opened Queensland Law Practice in 2011 and went through many expansions and structural changes within her business which continues to grow today.  Her goal is to help other businesses navigate these difficult times and to come out stronger. She has a strong business acumen and not only understands the law, but also how to apply it to get the best out of any situation.

The legal system is difficult to navigate and full of pitfalls. Fighting in court can be time consuming, emotionally draining and outright expensive. Generally speaking, it is generally best policy to negotiate better outcomes and avoid court, however, sometimes going to court is unavoidable.  If you have to go to court the lawyer you want in your corner is one who knows the system well and knows how to prepare you and your matter in order to achieve your required outcome.  After years in the legal industry and with many successes in the courtroom, Tracey does not measure her career by her victories, but rather her losses. Losses of which can be counted on one hand, a true testament to a legal career spanning more than 15 years.

Tracey lives her entire life by the saying “Nothing Ever changes if nothing ever changes”.  With change comes new possibilities.

Former director of Thomson law and special counsel to Rhonda Penny Lawyers, Robin brings a wealth and lifetime of legal knowledge to the table. Robin is a consultant with QLP and is responsible for all contracts and retail leases.  It is an honour for Robin to share his wealth of experience with our clients and more junior solicitors.


A long serving member of community including RSL, rotary club, Robin is just as happy to have a chat outside the office as he is passing on his legal knowledge inside the office. Robin is a model first class citizen, and he knows everybody. In the rare event he doesn’t, he is at ease with striking up a conversation and turning strangers into familiar faces.

Starting her own firm in 1992, Rhonda was the former director of Rhonda Penny lawyers. She operated as a sole practitioner from a small office at the Paddington Central shopping centre and serviced clients in the local Paddington area. In August 2008, Rhonda Penny Lawyers merged with Thomson Law and continued to operate as a general practice.

In 2016, after merging with QLP, and after long working career that has led to many successes, Rhonda has decided to take a back step and work as a consultant with QLP. 

Rhonda still continues to insert her direct and compassionate approach to matters for QLP and helping out from time to time.  When she is not working Rhonda loves to travel all over the world living the lifestyle that the rest of us can only dream about.
