In Queensland, coronial inquests must be held if a person dies in custody.

In Queensland, coronial inquests must be held if a person dies in custody, even if the cause of death is obvious or uncontroversial. An inquest must also be held if the death is a result of a police operation, or the death occurs in care. Our lawyers have extensive experience in advising and representing family members and witnesses through all stages of the coronial process. If you need legal representation, we can attend the pre-inquest conference and also represent you at the coronial inquest hearing.

Guest Lawyers offer free initial consultations (including in prisons) to assist with all coronial inquests. We act for all persons required to appear before the Magistrates and Supreme Court. We also conduct appeals in the Court of Appeal and High Court.

Our team of Brisbane criminal lawyers are licensed to practice across Australia and often travel to other states and territories to do so. Please get in touch with our lawyers either via Guest Lawyers’ email or by calling (07) 3211 3007.
