“I do what I do because it makes a difference.”
Craig Oliver is an experienced personal injury lawyer and Legal Practice Manager of Shine Lawyers' Mackay office where he leads a team of expert legal staff to deliver a market-leading service to members of the Mackay community.
With over 2 decades of experience in compensation law, Craig is an expert in motor vehicle, workplace injury, public liability claims, product liability claims and injuries sustained in the mining industry.
A dual citizen of both Australia and the United Kingdom, Craig graduated with a Bachelor of Law and French from the University of Central Lancashire in 1999. He worked for numerous high-profile firms throughout the United Kingdom, fighting for those who had been wronged, before moving to Australia and joining the Shine Lawyers team in 2012.
Client-focused, value-driven and uncompromising in the pursuit for justice, Craig is a fearless advocate for those he represents. He will go above and beyond to ensure each client has the opportunity to have their stories told and their rights recognised under the law. It is this drive that saw Craig recognised by the independent Doyles Guide as a leading compensation lawyer and by Queensland Law Society’s Legal Profession Awards as a leading regional practitioner. Craig continues to be an active advocate for systemic change within the mining industry, providing commentary on legislation changes in various media outlets and articles.
As Legal Practice Manager, Craig is focused on ensuring Shine Lawyers is the firm of choice for all in the Mackay region, providing legal guidance of the highest quality. He has served as a member, and most recently as President, of the Management Committee for the Mackay Regional Community Legal Centre, a not-for-profit free legal advice centre for the financially disadvantaged in the area. He also volunteers his time with a number of organisations to improve community engagement, child protection and youth services in the region.
