Resolute Legal is Townsville born and bred and we are focussed on getting the best outcomes for our clients.  However we are also focussed on continually improving the opportunities and way of life of our local community. That’s why we sponsor our local sporting teams, schools and clubs and try to give back our time and skills to help build on our community’s strengths.

Our magnificent office building has a lot of history too.  The land was purchased in 1875 for just 50 pounds.  The building was then built in 1925 to house the Australian Mutual Limited bank.  It has been host to a great many businesses over the years and was the American Army’s Headquarters during the Second World War.
