Paxton-Hall Lawyers was established in 2007 as the Brisbane office of Fox and Thomas Business Lawyers of Goondiwindi and St George.

In July 2010 we became an independent firm and completed this transition with a name change to Paxton-Hall Lawyers in April 2013. We are proud of our roots and maintain a strong affiliation with Fox and Thomas, with both firms sharing a similar mission and common values.

Today, Paxton-Hall Lawyers enjoys an enviable reputation as a leading contemporary law firm but with a traditional approach to service for clients.
