A refreshing approach
We’re a team of real people who understand you, and know the law like the back of our hands. We take a non-traditional tailored approach to suit client’s individual needs, from our flexible fee structures to our interesting staff who explain the law in plain English.
Operating in the family and criminal law space allows us to get to know people very well and make lasting relationships with our clients – we’ve even received Thank You’s and photos of our clients with their children. We’re happiest when we are helping our clients move on with their lives with confidence.
Here at Indigo Law, we celebrate rich life experience. Our staff are from diverse walks of life and have a wealth of backgrounds to draw from – Emma worked previously in hospitality, aged care, public trustee and Mark is former army and Queensland Police Service. We all have lives outside of law, and a tonne of stories.
We’re just like you.
Emma Meadth is the Founder of Indigo Law, establishing the practice in 2014 on the foundation of 22 years of industry experience. Emma chose the name ‘Indigo Law’ because the colour Indigo is said to reflect the virtues of fairness, justice, impartiality, and wisdom – just perfect for Emma’s bold vision for this strong, fair and knowledgeable law firm.
Emma loves big challenges and nothing can get in the way of her determination. Her choice to study Law came from thinking “This is the hardest thing I could do, so I’ll do it!” Year after year, she has built a proven reputation as a sharp legal mind.
Career highlights include working as a junior criminal lawyer on high-profile cases in Canberra for a senior criminal lawyer who was akin to the ‘ Lincoln Lawyer’, and becoming the first ever female partner at a large firm. Additional career highlights are remaining friends with all previous employers (no mean feat!) and forming the Indigo Law team.
Parenting matters and estate administration are areas of law that interest Emma most, because of the satisfaction she feels in helping her clients move on with their lives. Being from a divorced family and having half-siblings, as well as now having stepchildren, Emma has a personal understanding and passion for helping families reconnect and stay connected.
Community-minded, Emma often extends her experience to pro-bono and advisory work, providing free legal advice to clients of MICAH Projects and working as a pro-bono solicitor for matters in the Federal Circuit court.
Do you have trouble with traffic or licensing law? Emma has your back. When Emma first started driving, she was terrible, writing off three cars and losing her licence for 3 for excessive speeding. She took a defensive driving course and has not had a traffic infringement for almost 20 years! She has been arrested too – read the story here. If you’re after real and effective legal advice from someone who’s been there, she can help you.
When Emma is not being a legal professional, she loves travelling and the challenge of learning French. If she won the lottery, she’d buy an island and a plane and travel the world (who wouldn’t?!)
Mark is the newest solicitor at Indigo Law, with a particular interest in Criminal Law. He manages the criminal law department at Indigo Law and brings a great perspective to criminal defence as a former QLD Police Officer. He has a passion for ensuring that police have acted properly in the exercise of their duties. His mantra is “Know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em”.
Mark has hit the ground running with his law career, with early highlights including recently appearing in the Coroners Court sitting at Gladstone for a family of a victim of domestic violence. He has also dealt with and continues to deal with a number of clients whose criminal offences may or could lead to deportation.
Mark is a fierce advocate for fairness and fights each case with unfailing integrity and honesty. His background in policing is a distinct advantage in criminal law cases. Combined with a caring, clear communication style, Mark is a great legal professional to have on your side.
A true highlight for Mark is the feeling of pride of achieving the best possible outcome whenever assisting someone with their legal matter.
Mark is a proud parent and grandparent, who not too long ago, realised a lifelong dream of travelling to Europe. If you ask about it, be prepared for many stories of his adventures!
Founded on experience
Founded by Emma Meadth, the team has a wealth of experience and success in ensuring each client’s personal legal matters are dealt with in a professional yet empathetic manner.
