Marguerita is a hard-working, empathetic solicitor with a background full of diverse life experiences. 

During her childhood in Ireland her father, a bricklayer, fell from scaffolding and suffered a back injury. When compensation was not available, their family struggled financially. Marguerita was driven to become a personal injuries lawyer to help others in similar situations.

After finishing school, Marguerita commenced her legal career as a junior legal secretary. In 2004, she backpacked around Australia where she met her now husband. The following year, the pair returned to Ireland. Marguerita continued working in personal injuries at a local law firm and completed a diploma in Legal Studies and Practice at Griffith College. After graduation, she worked as a paralegal and stayed in the same field before moving back to Australia in 2009 where she was employed by a large Brisbane law firm. She was promoted from a paralegal to a law clerk managing her own branch.

Marguerita has completed a Bachelor of Laws at USQ followed by a Graduate Diploma from the College of Law.

Marguerita takes the time to listen and understand who her clients are, how their injuries have impacted their lives and thinks outside the box when it comes to gathering evidence. This allows her to deliver the best possible results.

"The perfect place to go if you need help with a personal injury claim. Marguerita did a fantastic job and gave peace of mind as her and her team successfully secured me the funds I need to help me with my current health needs and any health needs I may confront in the future. I highly recommend Shine Lawyers North Lakes."


"Marguerita was very professional, understanding and kind. She and her team went above and beyond to answer any questions, were transparent, and always kept me updated. I am thankful I had Marguerita and the North Lake’s Team working on my case."


"Marguerita McIntosh is an absolute legend! Having never had any dealings with lawyers or any legal situations in my life I can truly say I couldn’t have gone through this without you. You took your time explaining everything - many times over, and gave me confidence to stand up for myself and not give up on what was ethically right. Your ability to quickly assess a situation, your knowledge of the law and work with the big picture as well as the details is highly commendable. Your ability to show me that my situation wasn’t hopeless actually saved me. Not only was I supported, but in by standing up for what was right, hopefully the lives and experience of others will be improved, and those who think they are untouchable rethink their actions. Deepest gratitude for Marguerita and her team"
